The 3½-Litre Bentley was first shown at the 1933 London Motor Show and was introduced as a sporting motor car for Rolls-Royce to sell alongside their 20/25 model.
This particlar car carries rather elegant two door coachwork by the respected firm of Thrupp and Maberly. It has recently returned from the USA where at some stage a six cylinder Chevrolet engine and gearbox were been fitted. It is in need of restoration, but apart from the incorrect engine and gearbox we believe it is only missing the tools and door handles for the passenger door.
The car comes complete with a C&E 386 customs form and former Californian Title papers.
