Tourer
Coachwork: Thrupp and Maberly
Chassis #: MR3990
This particular car is one of a very small number of vintage Bentleys that have survived with their original open four-seater coachwork intact. Chassis MR3390 was delivered to Thrupp & Maberly, one of the oldest English coachbuilders who excellence had attracted the patronage of the Royal Family. The exquisite touring bodywork on this car is the only example of Thrupp & Maberly coachwork on a 4.5-Litre Bentley chassis. It retains all its original fittings, including engine and gearbox. In 1938 the car was sent back to Thrupp & Maberly to have the windscreen raked back and a second rear door added. Since then it has been used on hill climbs and rallies by subsequent enthusiastic owners.
