Open Two Seater Boattail
Coachwork: Park Ward & Co.
This is one of only eleven open Bentley Speed Sixes with its original body - a Park Ward boattail speedster with pontoon fenders. Park Ward of London started by producing bodies for the Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost and was a major supplier to Rolls-Royce and Bentley owners throughout the 1920s. Originally delivered to a Mr. Donald Hurt in 1929, this car is one of 182 Bentley Speed Sixes built between 1926 and 1930. During its 80-year life the car had one other body - a sporty two-seat design built by Abbots of Surrey, England, and fitted to it just after the war. The original body, seen here, was fitted on another 6-liter Bentley of the same period, but it has now been reunited with its original chassis. It was given a restoration, which was completed in the late 2000s.
