This 3 Litre Bentley is thought to be one of only two unrestored and completely original tourers from the heady days of the W.O. Bentley era. The first owner of this 3 Litre was a young eningeer named Clive Gallop. Gallop is an important figure in Bentley history: in 1919 he designed the camshaft on Bentley's first 3 Litre engine; he was amongst the first to start that new engine in Bentley's Mews garage off Baker Street in London, and he was the first person to drive a Bentley on the road - even before W.O. Bentley himself. In 1926 Gallop drove a similar 3 Litre at LeMans with debonair playboy owner Scrap Thistlethwayte as his co-driver. Unfortunately, the pair retired after 102 laps when a rocker arm failed.
