Coachwork: Vanden Plas
Chassis #: YU7692
With the 'Bentley Boys' success at LeMans, owners of Bentley touring cars for decades have had theirs re-bodied to emulate the LeMans winner. This car, #YU7692, received this upgrading including a proper 4.5-liter engine with Phoenix crank and rods, 4.5 gearbox and transmission, larger racing fuel tank, long racing bonnet, cycle wings and larger racing gauges.

As noted Shelsley Special racer J.G. Fry said back in 1943, 'Recipe: take a good three-liter Red Label Bentley chassis, mix in a good 4.5-liter engine, gearbox and transmission, and add a light two-seater body with accessories to taste. The result is a motor car which, while still retaining good vintage flavor, possesses performance equaled by few other machines even of the most modern and expensive type.'

This #YU7692 is a fully sorted example that was owned by the same Bentley Drivers Club owner since the 1960s and VSCC raced throughout Europe and is ready for vintage racing or any historic tours or events.
