Vintage and Prestige Fine Motor Cars are proud to be offering this 1935 Derby Bentley 3 1/2 Liter Rippon Pillarless Coupe for sale. A one off pillarless coupé designed by Rippon Bros of Huddersfield. The coachwork on this Bentley is the last word in elegance.
The Derby Bentley belonged for many years to the late, and much missed Derby Bentley afficionado, Julian Paul of Ughill above Sheffield. Julian was known for his fastidious yet sympathetic restoration of his cars and indeed won numerous prizes for the cars he showed.
This Derby Bentley is no exception having run under Julian’s tenure for a good number of years. The Derby Bentley comes to us in impeccable mechanical condition. The engine personifies the moniker "The silent sports car". It starts instantly and pulls one down the road at speed in a quiet and unruffled manner.
The Derby Bentley is finished in excellent black and dark blue paint that accentuates the elegance of the design beautifully. To the interior is the original feeling ‘Bedford’ cord to the front and rear with the front seats having fitted covers, the better to preserve them.
The dash-board wood on the Derby Bentley has been removed and re-finished. A large sunroof slides easily open. An Art Deco style spot lamp adorns the font valence augmented either side by a pair of trumpet horns. Under the bonnet the engine bay is pleasantly tidy and workman like with the black parts having been painted in deep gloss. Attention has also been given to re-plating the chrome work where required.
Rarely do we get a Derby of this elegance, rarity and beauty.
