This drophead coupe is the only one built by Cockshoot for the 4.25-litre Bentley chassis and the second to last Cockshoot body built on a Bentley chassis at the Derby factory.

The Bentley 4.25-liter chassis reflected further refinements including the engine, a gearbox with overdrive and independent front suspension and, beginning in 1938, Marles steering. The 4.25-liter motor had been introduced in 1936 as coachwork became heavier - but also to maintain the marque's sporting reputation.

A Bentley drophead coupe was featured in the James Bond film 'Never Say Never Again.'
