Lot 211: Bentley 4 � Litre Sports Saloon

Fine Motor cars incl. The Jaguar Legend, Coys (14 July 2012)

The present owner bought this Rippon bodied car, in October 1988 as part of a Mid life crisis. Unfortunately this did not work as within two years of buying the car his wife became pregnant with their third child and and the car was not used; simultaneously the country went into recessesion and the car was ignored.

About 20years ago the ash frame of the roof, windscreen and scuttle was replaced by a man in Hertfordshire.The car is complete and was used almost on a daily basis until about 18-20 years ago. As far as the owner can recall,the only missing parts are the windscreen wipers which, for some reason did not come back from the coach builder.A great opportunity for someone wanting a project to restore one the prettiest Bentleys of its era and bring it back to its former glory.
