Vintage and Prestige Fine Motor Cars are proud to be offering this 1934 Derby Bentley3 1/2 Liter Hooper Drop Head Coupe for sale. Bought by the vendor’s father in 1964, this is a low ownership Bentley with two prior owners before the current family acquired it over five decades ago. The Bentley Derby 3 1/2 Liter Hooper Drop Head Coupe was supplied new, to a lady living in Eaton Square.  The Bentley then followed her out to Wales when she moved out of the area.

Coachwork is a drop head coupe by Hooper.  By the 1990's the paint was getting shabby so a full re-spray was undertaken.  At the same time, new green hide was installed to replace the cracked original hides.  As such, it has had time to build up a pleasant patina rather than presenting as brand new.

In the 1990's a major engine rebuild was undertaken.  Since those times the vendor informs us that the Bentley Derby 3 1/2 Liter Hooper Drop Head Coupehas covered just a couple of thousand miles seeing little use other than brief runs to keep the Bentley in good fettle.  New fuel pumps have just been fitted as the diaphragms on the originals had hardened and become unserviceable.

Last year the moths had sadly degraded the hood lining so a new black hood and lining was fitted.  Indeed, any jobs needing done to the Bentley Derby 3 1/2 Liter Hooper Drop Head Coupe has always been done to keep the Bentley in fine running order.  The car indeed runs beautifully and has the feeling of being a low mileage chassis giving credence to the 90,000 odd miles indicated.  Since the 1960's the Bentley Derby 3 1/2 Liter Hooper Drop Head Coupehas covered sparse miles.
