1936 Bentley  3  Litre Drophead Coupe by Park Ward

This 1936 Bentley 3 litre Drophead Coupe with coachwork by Park Ward has been under the same family's ownership since 1958. Blue over black with tan leather interior. The previous owner's aunt purchased the Bentley through Tom Mix of Foreign Motors who she had contracted him to find and arrange for the shipping of the vehicle from England to the United States. In the late 1960s/early 1970s chassis B45EJ underwent restoration. After coming out of restoration, the car mostly sat in the garage only being brought out by her nephew (the previous owner) sparingly during the decades since. The previous owner finally acquired ownership from his aunt in 2012. Although stunning from 20 feet away, the Bentley would benefit from minor cosmetics. The interior could also use detailing including a conditioning of the supple leather. The car runs, drives, and stops but mechanical servicing is recommended prior to road use. The original engine coil needs to be rebuilt but the car has been modified to run on an aftermarket coil to show prospective buyers that the engine does run. The convertible top is showing some discoloration and wear around the rear window. The paint is chipping, cracking and pitted on all panels but surprisingly still looks presentable from a distance. The chrome also has pitting but the beautiful Lucas lamps still have some shine. Offered with its factory owners manuals and partial tolls. While certainly not a show car, it represents an exciting opportunity for anyone who truly appreciates derby Bentleys.
