1935 Derby Bentley 3.5 litre Park Ward Alloy body saloon.
Chassis number: B-120-EF
Registration number: ESJ494
Off test on the 13th April 1935; This Derby Bentley wears aluminium coachwork by Park Ward, taking the form of a 4 door sports saloon. In the last few years over £30,000 has been spent upon the car with work being done mostly by noted vintage car engineer Roy O'Sullivan of Stroud. The bills detail a comprehensive overhaul to all things mechanical including the braking system & fitting of a new cylinder head. The one shot lubrication has also been attended to as have king pins, brake shoes, axles, bushes etc etc etc.
The car is finished in dark red to the exterior with biscuit coloured leather to the interior. The lether is of recent origin & in lovely condition. A thick file of bills & also a photogrphic record of the work done comes with the car.
On the road the car drives well with temperature at 70 degrees & oil pressure at a high 32 lbs when under load. The speedometer reads 3mph slow so at 60 MPH, a speed the car runs at easily one is actually travelling a tad faster making the car well able to run in modern traffic.
A large sunroof is fitted & slides easily back for al-fresco summer motoring. The boot is a capacious affair with the spare wheel being mounted to the exterior of the boot lid complete with a body coloured wheel cover. Pleasingly, the car comes with its original instruction manual. The brightwork is good with the radiator having been re-chromed. Likewise under the bonnet the engine bay is tidy & well detailed.
All in all a pleasing car to drive with all the major works needing to be done having been recently completed.
