Description

1994 Bentley Brooklands Sports Saloon
Registration no. L292 WEW
Chassis no. SCBZE02C3RCH54284

This Bentley Brooklands was purchased new from Powles of Leicester by George Adams, known as the 'Sausage King' of Lincolnshire, and first registered as 'GCA 5'. Master of the Worshipful Company of Butchers, George was collected from Buckingham Palace in this Bentley after receiving his OBE. He was also a great car enthusiast, and had finished 12th equal in the 1953 RAC Rally driving a Jaguar. Sadly, he did not get to enjoy the Bentley much before he died. His son, Mark, inherited 28 cars from his father after the latter's death, including this Bentley Booklands. When his company, Adams & Harlow, opened a new factory, Princess Anne, the Princess Royal, was guest of honour and travelled in the Bentley to officiate at the opening ceremony. Although he admired the quality of the Bentley's workmanship, Mark did not find the car to his taste and soon sold it.

The next owner was Frederick Edward Titmuss of Kettering, who reregistered the car as 'FET 4V'. The car's next owner, Doug Ryder, a past Chairman of the Wessex division of the Rolls Royce Enthusiasts Club, purchased it with only 34,000 miles recorded, which is fully supported by documentation. Now registered as 'L292 WEW', the Bentley has covered only some 39,000 miles, a relatively low total compared with the vast majority of its type, many of which have clocked up substantial mileages. The car is offered with sundry bills, a V5C document and MoT to April 2019.
