This 1938 Bentley 41/4 litre is only car that was bodied by the famous H.J. Mulliner that featured a unique disappearing top design. The car was originally sold by the well-known London dealer, Jack Barclay. The dealer’s special emblem still remains attached to the front bumper.
This actual car is believed to have participated in the 1939 Royal Automobile Club(RAC) Brighton Rally and is featured in Johnnie Green’s authoritative book “Bentley,Fifty years of the Marque”.
This car is finished in navy blue with contrasting double red pin striping. The interior is covered in rich red leather. Door interior panels feature stitched leather map pockets. This car had had a single owner since 1972.
This car has been completely restored. All structural body wood was replaced by the owner. The car was repainted. Engine and chassis were refurbished. Interior work included refinishing all of the wood and re-trimming all leatherwork. All wiring was replaced and re-installed to correct original color codes.
The car has been shown once, at Amelia Island in March 2013, where it took a second in class. Here is an opportunity to own a magnificent classic Bentley, which requires no additional refurbishment and will give the new owner miles of motoring and many admiring looks.
