In stunning condition any inspection invited., Something very special very rare and very collectable. 1936 Bentley 4 1/4 Litre Drop Head Coupe with coachwork by James Young. One of only six produced and featured in the well known book "A pride of Bentleys" by John Adams. Page 166/167. This being a prototype for James Young experimenting with cantilever doors and Rolls-Royce winning the Premier Coachwork Award at the 1938 Motor Show for such a design. Having easy access to the rear seats and saving the problem of opening large doors in a confined garage. Also, being able to leave the door open whilst being parked at the side of the road and having no problem with dropping of doors. It was never put into full production as it was far too advanced for its time and much too expensive for the average customer. Before being acquired by ourselves, this magnificent car spent the last 20 years being exhibited in a motor museum. Believed to have covered just over 50,000 miles from new. Now undergone a major restoration by ourselves with full photographic evidence. This consisting of a bare metal respray in her original livery of Black and Ivory, a new exhaust fitted from front to back. A new fully lined hood and weather equipment. All brakes and electrics overhauled and has been generally serviced throughout. And now being in an absolutely stunning condition in every conceivable way and turns heads where ever she goes. Fast, rakish and a delight to drive. A pure investment for the connoisseur.
