Chassis no: B79KU
1937 Derby Bentley 4 1/4 Drophead Coupe, H J Mulliner.
Undergoing restoration at present. This car will be with us no later then April.
The mechanical rworks required have all been completed. The cosmetics are part way done. The car will be done in time for summer events such as Pebble beach.
This is a particularly desirable example of a 4.25 Derby Bentley with fabulous disappearing top coachwork by noted Chiswick based builders H.J. Mulliner & Co. The car is being finished in midnight blue paintwork done to a very very high standard. To the interior is Vaumol beige connoly hide throughout along with new carpets.
Great attention has been given to the interior retaining the original feather stuffing from the seats & adding to it where required to build up the right profile. No modern staples have been used with the leather instead having been hand tacked to the seat frames as was done when new. All woodwork has likewise been removed & refinished.
The history is complete from 1937 and includes the majority of repair invoices over all the years as well as various articles and archive details are on file
The car is the H.J. Mulliner 1937 Earls Court Motor Show Bentley display car and features the very attractive flowing body lines style due to its “concealed head”.
Once finished it will be ready to win prizes at shows. Please call us with expressions of interest for full details.
