1954 Bentley R Type Park Ward Convertible Chassis number: B3YA A rare Coachbuilt Park Ward bodied R type. This car has had an extensive mechanical restoration in the last tow years including a full engine rebuild with new pistons & a re-ground crank etc. Likewise the chassis & braking system has been completely gone though & renewed. The radiator has also been recored & the radiator shell re-chromed. Prior to restoration the car resided for many many years in Las Vegas Nevada where the dry desert climate preserved the car extremely well. The car presents beautifully in its original British Racing Green/ Sage Green colour scheme. Since its return it has had a new leather interior fitted along with new carpets. All woodwork has been removed & re-finished to a high standard. Assorted parts have been rechromed as required. The hood is of green Mohair & glides up & down at the touch of a button. The hood lining is of dark green alcantra. Under the bonnet the car is highly detailed to show standards. We expect the car to arrive with us at the end of March after some final chrome work such as the windshield surround has returned from the platers. The car featured prominently in a 1968 Inspector Clouseau film delivering Clouseu to a waiting British United Airways Vickers VC-10. ..

A lovely 1954,right-hand drive, DB2/4 with great history and current FIVA papersOwned in the 1980s by Philip Gould, a founding member ofthe 80s pop band, Level 42Over 30,000spent during ourvendor'sownershipwith marque experts, Nic Mee and Moto TechniqueFIVA papers offering entry to the Mille Miglia recently secured and these may betransferrableReally lovely condition. Successin the 2016 Aston Martin Concours d'EleganceWith a fascinating history, this is Classic Aston ownership at its very bestThe Aston Martin DB2/4 was launched from Feltham in October 1953 and was offered as a sporting 2+2 hatchback or an open Drophead Coup. Although similar to the DB2 it replaced, changes included a smaller fuel tank, rear suspension upgrade, wraparound windscreen, larger bumpers, and repositioned headlights. A number of special bodied cars were also produced by Italian coachbuilders Carrozzeria Allemano, Bertone, and Vignale who were commissioned at special request by private clients. David Brown had purchasedthe Lagonda company a few years earlier, primarily to obtain the W.O.Bentley designed, double overhead camshaft straight-six, which he wanted as a replacement for the ageing Claude Hill four-cylinder unit. He knew success in motorsport would benefit sales, and used the 2.6-litre, six-cylinder unit to power the works DB2s which were campaigned at Le Mans and across Europe throughout the early 1950s.The DB2/4 engine (VB6J) was initially tuned to 125bhp, propelling the car to 120mph and 0-60mph in 11.2 seconds,however, in the summer of 1954, the capacity was increased from 2,580cc to 2,992cc, which raised power to 140bhp at 5,000rpm and reduced the 0-60mph time to tenseconds dead. The Autocar described the DB2/4 in October 1953 as: 'an expensive car designed to cater for the connoisseur of sports cars who is not limited by financial considerations.... a car of rare quality, unusual performance, exceptional road-worthiness and unrivalled versatility.' - a description that, I suspect, Aston Martin wouldbe proud to have applied to any of their current models.LML 687was first registered on the 26th May 1954, originally finished in Sea Green with a Black leather interiorand weunderstand that this DB2/4 spent much of its earlylife in Sussex, before being bought by a Mr Tidy in 1970, who kept thecaruntil the early 1980's. Further detail within the carssubstantialhistory file shows that Mr Tidy commissioned a significant restoration during his ownershipand within the file, there are items ofcorrespondence between Mr Tidy and various suppliers.By the late 1980's, the Aston passed via a London dealer into the ownership of Philip Gould, a founding member and drummerofthe 1980's pop band Level 42.Sometime later,well-respected restorer Andrew Thorogoodwas tasked with rebuilding the Astons engine and at the same time the wiring loom was replaced and the brakes and suspension were reconditioned. Inevitably, there was other minor work carried out to return LML 687 to rude health and we believe the account forall this came to around 17,000.Mr Gould kept his Aston foralmost10 years before passing custodianship toits next owner in 1997,and he, in turn, looked after the car for the following20 years.Heclearly cherished it hugelyduring this period and we can see from the owners file that between2008and2015the bodywork was substantially restored and a fresh coat of British Racing Green applied. The lovely patina of the interior was such that,on advice fromspecialists and fellow Aston owners,it was decided to leave as is rather than replace. The engine was rebuilt by leading Aston Martin specialist Davron, the carburettors were rebuilt, as were the front suspension and steeringassembly. The brakes were relined and fitted with Alfin drums and, as a nod to practicality, an alloy radiator and electric fan were fitted. A custom-made twin stainless steel exhaust was also fitted. The results ofall this workwere so impressive that the car was awarded Third in Class atthe 2016 Aston MartinConcoursdEleganceat Duxford.Later that year it was decided to sell the DB2/4 after 20 years of ownership and our vendor purchased OOX 209to add to his significant private collection.Our vendor, a real classic car enthusiast, has always wanted to compete in the Mille Miglia and saw this 54 DB2/4 as a perfect opportunity in which to tick, one of the mostsignificantmotoring events in the world, off his bucket list. FIVA papers were therefore applied for and successfully obtained, however, a change in private circumstance meant that dream never came to fruition so, regrettably, the caris being offeredto the open market,however, he intends tofulfilhisMille Miglia dreams one day.In order to keep the car up to his exacting standards, the current owner has spent over 30,000duringhis ownership, with Moto Technique in 2017 and with marque experts Nic Mee in 2019and there are invoices in the file detailingthiscare and attention.The Aston is accompanied by a fascinatinghistory filecontaininga variety of invoices for the aforementionedmaintenance, repairsand restoration work dating back to the 1960's, a photographic record of therecentrestoration, correspondence, and the normal ownership documents, logbooks etc.This is classic Aston ownership atits very best and we thoroughly recommend a closer inspection.
