Bentley 1937 Bentley 4¼ Liter History Specifications
Share On

This Derby Bentley 4 1/4 Litre Coupe wears coachwork by Gurney Nutting and Co. of Chelsea. It has an Art Deco design with pillarless construction and a split rear window, and a swooping waistline. It has a rear-mounted spare wheel and a sliding sunroof.

The original owners of the car kept it for around 35 years. Later in life, it was treated to a restoration to original specification, with caramel-coloured leather highlighting the woodwork of the interior.

In 2012, the car was offered for sale at Coys 'Legende et Passion' Monaco sale where it was estimated to sell for €175.000 - €220.000.
