The Bentley Speed Six chassis was introduced in 1928 as a more powerful and sporting version of the 6.5-Liter known as the Big Six. Bentley built this car for Sir Egbert Cadbury, a member of the Cadbury chocolate family who had served as a pilot in World War I and shot down two Zeppelins on their way to bomb London. He kept the car until 1954, but after a time, he had its original Mulliner saloon body replaced with this Vanden Plas 'bobtail' coachwork from another Speed Six. Only four of these distinctive bodies were made by Vanden Plas and three survive. The first was built on a 4.5-liter chassis for the LeMans Bentley Boy, Bertie Kensington Moir, and was used as a demonstrator at his Bentley dealership. This special Bentley has recently been restored with 'new' Rexine fabric made to the exact specification of the original Vanden Plas body.
