Drophead Coupe
Coachwork: Gurney Nutting
Chassis #: GK 6661
The Gurney Nutting, Ltd. was established just after World War I, in 1919. The company was created by J. Gurney Nutting and initially located in Oval Road, Croydon. A fire destroyed the facilities in 1923 and resulted in the business relocating to Elystan Street, Chelsea.

During the mid-1920s, the company built a reputation for building elegant, luxurious bodies for royalty and the social elite. Most of their work were for Rolls-Royce and Bentley automobiles.

This Bentley 4 1/2 Litre Drophead Coupe has coachwork by Gurney Nutting. The design is narrow, long, and built for speed. The boat-tail rear-end and flowing fenders help accomplish task. There is a large windscreen in the front to protect the driver and passenger; and a small windscreen in the rear to protect a third passenger. There is a side-mounted, uncovered spare wheel tire mounted on the side of the vehicle. This vehicle was on display at the 2006 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance.
