Vintage and Prestige are proud to offer this 1937 Derby Bentley 4.25 Sports Saloon by Park Ward For Sale. Registration: ACJ 363 Chassis no: B120KT Engine no: Y2BN Unveiled to great acclaim at the August 1933 Ascot Races, the Derby Bentley was underpinned by a 'double dropped' chassis featuring all-round semi-elliptic suspension and four-wheel drum brakes. Powered by a more potent version of its Rolls-Royce 20/25 sibling's 3669cc OHV straight-six engine allied to four-speed manual transmission, the newcomer was soon christened the 'Silent Sportscar'. Responding to increased competition from the likes of Alvis and Lagonda, Bentley gave its customers the option of a larger 4257cc engine during the 1936 season. Priced at £50, a comparatively modest sum compared to the cost of a basic chassis, the new unit proved so popular that the smaller capacity powerplant was soon dropped. Nicely balanced to begin with, the Derby Bentley chassis proved more than capable of handling the extra power and torque. Of the 1,241 4.25-litre variants produced, just 46 were clothed by the Parisian coachbuilder Vanvooren. Highly influential during the 1930s (its patents were employed by over forty European rivals), Vanvooren looked set to become Bentley's preferred body supplier for the soon to be introduced 'Corniche' version of the MKV model until WW2 intervened. B120KT is offered in superb mechanical order, when looking through the invoices from marquee specialist Glen Grindrod it is clear to see that no expense has been spared and no bolt left un-checked. Also shown in the gallery is an excess of 10k spent at MAGGS vintage for the fitment of a high ratio (3.64/1) back axle and a brake and spring overhaul. All of these aspects combined together results in a truly remarkably smooth and well handling Derby Bentley. The body is a sports saloon design by Park Ward, finished in Grey over Cream it is a striking combination that has to bee seen. The paint finish is of a high standard and hard to fault, the quality carries onto the interior with all wood and leather being to a high standard. In our showroom and ready for viewing.

During the late 1920s and early 1930s Bentley ran into grave financial trouble and by 1931 Rolls-Royce had stepped in and bought the assets and goodwill of the defunct company and formed a new one, Bentley Motors (1931) Ltd. Rolls-Royce had considered the Bentley marque to be a growing threat to their future success, but following their purchase decided to continue the Bentley name, albeit under their own stewardship, taking the company in an entirely new direction with the creation of the Silent Sports Car or Derby Bentley. In 1933 the new Bentley 3.5 Litre model was released and was an instant success. The combination of effortless power and style met with almost universal praise. It was powered by a developed twin carburettor version of Rolls-Royces own 20/25 model and was installed in a low 126 inch wheelbase chassis that basically remained unaltered until the cessation of production in 1939 due to the outbreak of hostilities. Synchromesh was present on third and fourth gears and the Derbyswere fitted with a cross flow cylinder head and superb servo assisted brakes, encapsulating all of the perfection of Rolls-Royce engineering in this small sporting Bentley. Fitting of individual coachwork by approved body builders continued in true Rolls-Royce fashion giving potential buyers a great deal of choice in the look of their new motor car. 1936 saw further improvements with the introduction of the 4.25 Litre model when production of the 3.5 Litre unit ceased. One of the first 4.25 Litre examples built was Chassis No B198GA, completed in June of 1936, just three months into production of the new model. It began life with a Park Ward saloon style body as so many Derby Bentleys did, but was re-bodied into its current configuration some decades ago, with an original open tourer body by Corsica. Based in Corsica Street, Islington, London, Corsica were better known for coachwork on vintage Bentleys and Bugattis, producing only three open tourer bodies for Derby chassis. One body was fitted fromnew, to Chassis No B79JY and two further cars were re-bodied in this style, those being B116DG and also B198GA, the car we are currently offering for sale. The three Corsica bodies were built in a style very reminiscent of the Vanden Plas (Malcolm Campbell) style tourer, with cut away doors and flowing lines. Chassis No B198GA has been supplied by Frank Dale & Stepsons on more than one occasion in the past, in 1985 when supplied to a long standing customer who kept and enjoyed the car until 2011. At this point the car was supplied again by Frank Dale & Stepsons and following purchase, the new owner instructed some cosmetic restoration work, which included all of the chrome being restored, the coachwork restored and re-painted in dawn blue, a new hood in dark blue and some interior improvements to complement the mechanical preparation works we carried out. The car was then driven to southern Italy where it has been enjoyed in more recent times. We are delighted to have this motor car back for saleagain in 2017. It drives superbly and being so light is very sporty when considering its performance on the road. It is also complete with its original handbook and a selection of tools. Being one of just three bodies produced by Corsica, Chassis No B198GA may represent an opportunity not soon to be repeated.

Following the cessation of the First World War J. Gurney Nutting founded the firm which quickly became one of Britains top coachbuilders. In 1923 the factory in Croydon was destroyed by fire and the firm moved to new premises in Elystan Street in Chelsea. The firms reputation for quality and style grew quickly, with orders being placed by a number of members of the British Royal Family, including the Prince of Wales (later King Edward VIII) the Duke of York (later King George VI and the Duke of Kent.) Gurney Nutting were subsequentlygranted a Royal Warrant by the Prince of Wales for the years 1931 to 1935. The work of chief designer A.F. McNeill is widely recognised as some of the finest coachwork fitted to a Rolls-Royce and Bentley chassis. Gurney Nutting were famous for their sedanca coupe designs and Chassis No B187LE is one of their most stylish offerings. It is believed to be one of just four cars built to this design, all of which were believed to have been supplied by Jack Barclay Ltd between 1937 and 1938, fitted with a low boot line on raked rear quarters which is complemented by a falling waistline finished with chrome strips. Chassis No B187LE was originally completed in late 1938, finished in dark blue with a grey leather interior. It was supplied by Jack Barclay Ltd in December of 1938 to its first owner, Mr Stuart H Scribbans of the Purity Bread Company in Birmingham. It was owned by Mr Scribbins until 1965 when it was sold to Mr F V Chalmers of Staffordshire. Later in life the car found its way to ContinentalEurope where it was restored. It was acquired by Frank Dale & Stepsons from a collection in Germany in recent times and has subsequently been prepared to showroom condition. The car was mechanically reviewed and prepared, re-wired and re-painted in black to match the existing mohair hood. The interior was in good condition but new carpets were trimmed and fitted to complete this very stylish cars appearance. It is complete with an original handbook and a full complement of small tools which are housed in the trunk. Gurney Nutting are rightly considered to be one of the finest coachbuilders of the pre-war era and B187LE is an excellent example of their craft, presented in very good condition throughout and ready to enjoy.

H.J.Mulliner are synonymous with the Bentley marque and were responsible for some of the finest coachwork fitted to Derby Bentleys in terms of the build quality and overall appearance. Chassis No B190JD is perhaps one of their most stylish creations in the pre-war era. It was originally completed in March of 1937, the only car built to Design No 5861 by H.J.Mulliner on the 4 1/4 Litre chassis and then subsequently supplied to Mr H.M. Thompson of Edinburgh. It remained in the Edinburgh area until 1942 when it was purchased by TheHolland Gravel Co Ltd in Derby and changed hands again in 1946 when it was purchased by Lady L. Throokmorton in Surrey. The car then moved to the London area in 1952 where it remained until 1960. At this time Chassis No B190JD was used at Pinewood Studios for a film starring US actor Robert Wagner who was so impressed with the car that he bought it and when the filming concluded he took it back to America with him. A further three American owners followed up until 1990 when the car returned to the UK and became part of a large collection in the north of England. Over the next eighteen years, B190JD covered only 700 miles until being acquired in 2008 by the present owner. Following some essential mechanical works to ensure reliability, the car was taken on the BDC tour of Alaska in 2009 where it performed very well. Upon the cars return to the UK the owner decided upon an extensive restoration program to bring the car up to show standard. Over the ensuing years a full body off restoration wascarried out, covering all mechanical and cosmetic aspects. The coachwork was removed and the chassis was extensively restored. All major mechanical components were stripped, overhauled and restored to as new standard. The existing ash frame was in poor condition so a new frame was constructed and the coachwork was extensively restored to ensure a perfect surface to prepare for painting. The chrome was re-plated, the interior woodwork restored and re-veneered and a new hood and interior were trimmed to complete the process. The restoration took several years as one would expect and all of the work was carried out to the highest standards. Each stage of the restoration is documented photographically and the car comes complete with extensive files documenting the process. B190JD took its bow at concours level in 2016 when it won best in class, best Derby Bentley and also the runner up for best in show at the annual BDC Concours. The following year it followed up this success with best in class at theRREC annual concours. Since 2008, every aspect of this beautiful motor car has been restored to ensure perfect performance, reliability and also show quality cosmetics. Its one of the very best Derby Bentleys Frank Dale & Stepsons has had the privilege of offering for sale and one that comes highly recommended.

Chassis No B70KT was originally completed in July of 1937 and was supplied by Jack Barclay Ltd to its first owner, a Mr. H.B. Mollins. There is a letter in the history file from the son of Mollins who remembers the car and gives an account of its early years. The family lived in Belgravia London where the car was to be principally for the use of Mollins wife. During the War years the familyevacuated to Cornwall and the car travelled with them. The car was kept until the 1950s when it was sold to a new owner in the USA. It remained in the USA until 2011 when it returned to Britain. It was supplied by Frank Dale & Stepsons the following year to a customer in the UK who decided to restore the car to its former glory. The works began with a full mechanical check and the necessary works ensued to make sure the car was reliable and drove beautifully. The ash frame was renewed and the coachwork was restored and then re-painted in a very attractive shade of dark blue. A new hood was fitted in dark blue everflex and a new interior was trimmed in tan leather. The wire wheels were restored and the original rear bumpers were re-fitted to the car to complete the job. The expenditure in recent years to B70KT has been in the region of approximately two hundred thousand pounds. The finished car is extremely handsome and drives beautifully. It is complete with a restored small tool set concealed inthe boot, handbook and an interesting history file.
