Lovely and original Bentley 3 Litre Open Tourer from 1924. This lovely car showing it is nearly 100 years old has been owned by the previous family from 1966 until 2017. She still carries her original engine number.
However mechanically in 2016 and 2017 she has been extensively refurbished by well known James E Pearce and received a full engine rebuilt by Medcalf's. Much money was spend. The engine rebuild alone cost nearly 50.000 Pounds.
The 3 Litre Bentley big four cilinder had 4 valves per cilinder and double ignition per cilinder and was a very succesful racer in the days with results in the Tourist Trophy and also at Le Mans.
When new the car carried a two door saloon body. The car had several documented owners from 1924 until 1960 and in 1960 was bought by well known collector George Daniels. She received the current original Van den Plas body when the car was owned by Jim Pearce in the 1960's. And as said in 1966 the car was bought by a family who would keep her for more than 50 years!
Before Brexit the car was registered in Holland so is EEC Tax paid. This car is eligible for some of the worlds best events and also the VSCC and Bentley Drivers club events.
This lovely old Bentley is on the button and a joy to drive.
Price is Euro 325.000,-
