Drpohead Coupe
Coachwork: Park Ward & Co.
Chassis #: B157MX
Registration #: VSU 231
Of the 2,422 Derby Bentleys built, around 45% were bodied by Park Ward, and the majority of these received standard bodies, made either of wood and aluminum or all steel. As a result, many surviving Derby Bentleys carry this well-made coachwork.

This 4.25 Litre Park Ward Drophead Coupe was completed on July 18, 1939, and was exported to the Rolls-Royce and Bentley agent in New York, J. S. Inskip. There it remained until September 1943, when it was purchased by tis first owner, Percy Ballantine of the Ballantine brewing family. After a succession of American owners, the car was exported back to England in the late 1980s and was later shown at the 1998 Louis Vuitton Concours at Parc de Bagatelle in Paris. The car was then purchased by its current owners and brought to Florida for restoration by Vantage Motorworks in 2018.
