1925' Bentley 3 Litre Speed Model
!925 Bentley 3 Litre Speed Model with original tourer coachwork by Vanden Plas.
This striking motor car is an extremely rare example of a Bentley 3 litre Short Chassis Speed Model in that it is about as original as you are likely to find. It carries its original chassis, engine and body all numbered and corresponding to those numbers recorded when the car built.
In the 1970s the car was treated to an exacting restoration by Tony Townsend at Elmdown Engineering who were at the time one of the leading Vintage Bentley specialists.
In the 1980's the car was acquired by a Chartered engineer who set about researching the cars history and provenance. It took years of painstaking work. During his ownership the car was treated to a meticulous maintenance schedule to keep pace with its busy life. It was no idle museum piece but actively campaigned in rallies and vintage meets as well as being everyday transport at times.
More recently it has been part of a small collection of vintage cars highly prized for their originality. It is currently in wonderful condition both cosmetically and mechanically. It is a superb driving car and has been enjoyed both here and abroad.
This specification with this history and provenance makes this one of the most desirable 3 litre Bentleys you could wish for.
