This two seat 4.25-liter Derby Bentley was sold through the London Bentley dealership of Jack Barclay, and delivered in July 1937 to its first owner, S.B. White. It was ordered with sporty yet graceful coachwork from Vanden Plas that is similar to two other very famous Derby Bentleys owned by Sir Malcolm Campbell and the Countess of Warwick. Its current owner purchased the car in 1972 and has enjoyed it ever since.

The 4.25-liter Derby Bentley replaced the smaller 3.5-Liter model in 1936. Just over 1200 examples of the 4.25-liter were sold before the short-lived Mark V, which was introduced just as war broke out and the production of all motor cars was brought to a halt.
