Drophead Coupe
Coachwork: Vanden Plas
Chassis #: B106MR
Registration #: HPC 3
Derby Bentleys progressed from the first 3.5-Litre cars of 1933 through various subtle changes to the engine and chassis, to the 4.25 Litre cars introduced in 1936. The final chassis numbers for the Bentley 4.25 Litre ended with the letters MR and MX. One feature introduced on these late series models was an overdrive ratio for fourth gear that made them particularly comfortable touring cars, especially on the new European Autostradas and Autobahns.

This 4.25-Litre Derby Vanden Plas Drophead was first exhibited at the Scottish Motor Show in Glasgow in 1938. In April 1939 it took part in the RAC Brighton Rally, and it was featured in The Motor the following month. Cared for and maintained throughout its life, the car was judged to be the best Derby Bentley at the Kensington Gardens Bentley Drivers Club Concours in the 1980s. The current owner has enjoyed driving the car since 1995, and it has just been restored by marque experts P & A Wood.
