The 3.5-liter Bentley's were introduced in 1933. As the years passed, they would become known as the 'Derby Bentleys' and continue to grow the company's reputation as being a producer of refined, sporty, road-going cars. They were based on the Rolls-Royce 20/25HP but fitted to a shorter wheelbase and powered by a 115-horsepower, overhead-valve, six-cylinder engine that featured twin SU carburetors. The engine was mated to an all-synchromesh four-speed gearbox and equipped with servo-assisted brakes. The result was a sophisticated machine that had as much performance as it did style.

All of the 2,442 Derby Bentley's produced were given bodies by renowned coachbuilders. Over half were bodied by Park Ward and most of the others were sent to British coach building firms and fitted with unique bodies.

The first owner of this car was Terence Byron who purchased the car during the summer of 1935. It is chassis number B103CW and wears an aerodynamic body with saloon coachwork fitted by Rippon Brothers of Huddersfield, Yorkshire. The Rippon Brothers were Britain's oldest coachbuilders and one of their finest.

There were only two vehicles fitted with this type of body style by the Rippon Company. One of the two was on display at the 1935 Motor Show at Olympia, London. It is believed that this car, the sole survivor of the two, was the motor-show car. It has been restored and brought back to its original glory. It is fitted with its correct heater and radio, and great attention to detail was made on all aspects of the restoration.

In 2007 it was brought to Carmel, California where it was offered for sale at Bonhams auction, An Important Sale of Collectors' Motorcars and Automobilia. The lot was sold for $170,000 plus premium and tax.

After the purchase of this car at Bonhams Auction, the car was given a mechanical tune-up. It was shown at the 2008 Hillsborough Concours where it was judged to be 99 points. It has been in several books, publications, and news articles dating as far back as 1935. Today, the car is painted in two-tone gray and is a well-known and documented Derby Bentley.

In 2008, this Derby Bentley was offered for sale at the Gooding & Company auction held in Pebble Beach, California and was estimated to sell for $275,000 - $350,000. Bidding failed to satisfy the vehicle's reserve and the lot was left unsold.

In 2009, this Bentley was offered for sale by Bonhams Auction Company at the Exceptional Motorcars and Automobilia at the Quail Lodge Resort in Carmel, Ca. The car was sold for $166,500 inclusive of buyer's premium.

Recently it has been discovered that the vehicle was driven by Reginald Rippon in the 1935 RAC Rally, achieving second place. The car is finished in two elegant shades of gray with dark claret seating complimented by inlaid wood trim.
