The Bentley of the 1920s was a painstakingly crafted vehicle. On average, Bentley produced 300 cars annually or about 6-7 cars per week. At such a small rate, costs were high and cash flow minimal, thus leading to Bentley's acquisition by Rolls-Royce in 1931.

This is one of 1,700 3-Litre Bentley's produced with power supplied by an 85 horsepower, 2996cc SOHC 4-cylidner engine with four valves per cylinder and dual magnetos. Top speed was advertised at over 90 mph! It was delivered new in November 1926 and most likely fitted with this body in the mid-thirties. Its current caretaker purchased the car in 1993 and has since driven it more than 30,000 miles on vintage tours.
