| A 1935 3.5 litre Derby Bentley Shooting brake.
Chassis number B-80-DG was ordered new by Colonel C J Hirst of Renfrewshire in Scotland and delivered with coachwork by Hooper as a Drophead coupe that was converted into a Shooting Brake by London coachbuilders Jones Bros Ltd in 1937 after an incident.
Comprehensively restored in the mid nineties by the Gentleman I bought it from in the States last year, he had inherited the car from his Grandfather , who had purchased the Bentley shooting brake in 1960 and his family cossetted the car until my purchase.
I have had my engineer go through all the mechanics and sort out any niggles over the last twelve months. He then re-painted in the same Hunter green colourway the exterior and re-varnished the exterior woodwork. I then had the beige leather replaced that had been the previous owners choice with black leather and carpets which were my choice.
We changed P100rs lenses with the correct glass and re-fitted the centre spotlamp with the correct fitting.
Road taxed and tested this exquisite Bentley is now ready to drive anywhere. At present the stone guards on the rear wings are being refurbished. I have not polished the aluminium surrounds on the windows and I have left the dashboard and interior wood as its in very good condition and gives the car a wonderful patina. The wooden interior door panels that were visible prior to me covering with leather have been left as is , if anyone in the future prefers a more ultilitarian look.
Perfect for someone of substance who has their own estate or vineyard or maybe a collector of fine automobiles , would suit a Gentleman sportsman who has uses a pair of Purdeys and can use a Hardy rod and reel.
The only Bentley shooting brake known manufactured pre WW2.
A genuinely wonderful car|
