Registration #: KD 123
This 3 Litre Bentley has had several owners throughout its life, and the first was Roland Hornby, son of the inventor of Meccano and Hornby Model Trains. Prior to inheriting the family business, he used the car regularly, participating in several Hill Climbs and Rallies in period. Subsequent owners did the same. When acquired by the present owner, it was sent to be completely restored by Bentley specialist R.C. Moss Ltd in England. As part of the restoration, the body was re-trimmed with the correct Rexine fabric. This process was made possible after the restoration of the original Rexine coating machine, along with the remanufacture of the original canvas and the reengineering of the Rexine coating process itself. This is one of the first cars with a new Rexine body to be shown in public since the mid-1930s and the culmination of eight years of research.
