Sports Saloon
Coachwork: Park Ward & Co.
Chassis #: B160CR
Engine #: K7BS
Sold for $99,000 at 2015 RM Sotheby's : Monterey.
Rolls-Royce used their 20/25 HP model as the template for the new 3.5-Litre Bentley. The Bentley was given a higher-compression engine fitted with a cross-flow cylinder head and Bentley's SU carburetors. The new Bentley was introduced at Ascot in August 1933; the Bentley stand featured two Park Ward-bodied cars, a drophead coupe and a four-door sports saloon.

This Sports Saloon with coachwork by Park Ward was ordered for Aldrich Blake, Esq., Guards Club in London for delivery in October 1934. The special order request indicated a non-standard fog lamp, wing driving mirror, and interior driving mirror.

The car left England when it was acquired by a Californian named George Kerrigan. In the mid-1980s, the car was sold to Charles LaRocco, who undertook an extensive body-off, ground-up, mechanical and cosmetic restoration. The work was completed in 2002. The car then earned numerous First in Class and Best of Show awards at many concours and club events. It even won the Classic Car Club of America's Premier status.

The current caretaker acquired it in 2007.

The car is finished in Heather Grey with soft green undertones. The grey-green interior was redone in the spring of 2015. The seats are finished in Connolly hides, pleated as original. The car rides on correct Ace Deluxe polished wheel discs and has a rear-mounted Continental spare tire.
