Bentley Speed Six Long Chassis Vanden Plas Tourer (1930)

We offer this superb Vintage Bentley ( Chassis LR2791; Reg RX6180) in conjunction with Vintage and Prestige Fine Motor Cars Ltd of London. It is in brand new condition and has had an exhaustive rebuild to the highest standards by some of the great names in Bentley restoration. The Bentley chassis and engine were entrusted to Marque specialists McKenzie Guppy with the completed product being testament to their work. The Coachwork is aluminum on an ash frame constructed to a modified ‘Vanden Plas’ design.

LR 2791 has an interesting history and is unusual in having the chassis recorded as a standard six on the1930 factory build sheet although being among a batch of six cars all built from inception to Speed –Six specification. It was supplied to Mr A G Turner who had previously purchased a 4.5 Litre Bentley and took a great interest in the exact specification of his cars. By 1930 Bentley were struggling to survive prior to receivership in 1931 and it is possible that denoting it as a Six, although out of sequence, allowed them to invoice Mr Turner at a lower price---it was indeed sold ahead of the Speed Sixes each side, LR2790 and LR2792 (see the ‘Vintage Bentley’ web site).

The Bentley Speed Six is finished in ‘Midnight Blue’ with mocha brown hides to the interior. A high quality blue mohair hood and side screens complete the look. This Bentley is simply stunning from any angle. The dash board contains the usual array of fine instrumentation and unusually, the fuel gauge is from a Lancaster Bomber aircraft. The dash is a large slab of straight Frain walnut as are the door and dash capping’s.

The car may be viewed by arrangement with us or through Vintage and Prestige Fine Motor Cars Ltd in London. Detailed pictures are available. Part exchange is possible and shipment abroad can be arranged.
