1923 Bentley 3 Litre

Chassis number : 332

Share on:

Sold for $203,000 at 2005 Bonhams - Collectors' Motor Cars, Motorcycles & Automobilia.
Coachwork by Park Ward & Co. Ltd. Delivered to Mr. L.J.R. Lapisburn of Ravensworth, England who ran the car at the 1924 Brooklands Summer Meet. The editor of Motor Sport confirmed Mr. Lapisburn turned in several laps averaging 93.62 mph at the event. Given the nature of the track, the speed down the Railway Straight was about 95mph. This is one of the most original early vintage Bentleys which is now been restored to excellent condition and ready for road or track. In 1987 the car was sent to specialists, McKenzie & Guppy of Dorset, England for a complete mechanical restoration. Every chassis rivet was replaced by hand; a new radiator core was fitted, together with a Phoenix crank, camshaft, Moller pistons and needle rockers. In 1989, Ray Wiltshire, President of the Bentley Drivers Club having completed several laps at the Lime Rock Park in this car, commented that it seemed to behave as it must have when new.
