Flexible Coupe
Coachwork: Harrison
Chassis #: XR3347
Engine # XR3347
Sold for $726,000 at 2013 Gooding and Company - The Scottsdale Auction.
This Harrison-bodied coupe is very rare amongst vintage Bentleys. Of the 667 4.5-Litre cars built very few have survived in their original configuration. This car was ordered by a Mr. J.D. Gordon of Scotland as a fast touring car for the unpredictable local climate. It was specified with chromium plating of the hardware, a special A.T. speedomter, D-type gearbox and 'Sloper' SU carburetors. In 1929, it was given XV 494 London registration.

This Bentley is one of just two coupe bodies produced by Harrison for the 4.5-Litre and the sole surviving example. Design features of this vehicle include a raked front screen with opening capabilities, rain visors over the side windows and helmet fenders.

The car was finished in black with chrome trim and wheel discs. Inside were pleated leather seats with an integral rolled pillow which offered lumbar support and an adjustable feather. There were deep veneers and a silk screen for the rear window controlled from the front passenger seat.

As 1931 came to a close, the car's odometer showed 28,000 miles. The car managed to survive World War II intact and unharmed and by 1954 it was in the care of E.Ann Klein of Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Nicknamed 'Schwartzie,' the car sat in her collection for nearly twenty years before being purchased by another marque expert and Rolls-Royce author, John de Campi. Now completely restored, this is a unique, matching-numbers example of an early 4.5-Litre Bentley coupe.
