1934 Bentley 3 1/2 Litre Park Ward Special Saloon For Sale

A very worthwhile restoration project, being a Park Ward ‘Special Saloon’, with some unusual features, including extended tail, relative to the standard design of the time, as well as rear-hinged rear doors, with fixed windows, but pivoting quarter lights. Being an early ‘AE’ series chassis, it incorporates features such as single ‘B’ wheel nuts, and other items which add to the car’s appeal. The engine is complete and running, and the car can be driven around our yard. Despite much work being needed overall, the original brown leather interior is eminently saveable, and preserving this would add much to the finished car. SALE AGREED Chassis No. B183AE. Reg No. BME 509. Snippets: Illicit Whisky & the Lost Legion The first owner was Ronald Stuart Cumming (Kt 1965) whose great-grandparents Helen & John Cumming where the founders of the Cardow Whisky – renamed as Cardhu in the 1980s. Folklore says that in the early 1800s the illicit Whisky was sold from the farm’s window & that the aromas of Helen’s home baking helped to conceal the smell of the Whisky from the Excisemen!! John Walker & Co purchased the distillery in 1893 from Helen’s daughter-in-law Elizabeth; her son John became a director of the firm and was later succeeded on the board by his son Ronald. Ronald served with the Grenadier Guards during WWI with one of his older brothers – Lewis being killed at The Battle of Aisne in Sept 1914 aged just 21. Just years later B1283AE is noted as being with Frank Hamilton Keay Harrison of Scalesceugh by Carlisle. Many tiles bearing the stamp of the IXth Hispanic Legion have been unearthed in this area together with a milestone dated AD238-244 which is engraved with the grand sounding name of “Imperator Caesar Marcus Antonius Gordianus Pius Felix Augustus”. There are 3 Gordains that this could refer to: Gordian I – Governor of Africa after the death of Maximinus Thrax in AD238; his Gordain II who was co-ruler with his father & died whilst defending Carthage in AD238 (Gordain I committed suicide upon the death of his son) or Gordain III (grandson of Gordian I) who at 13 was the youngest sole legal Roman emperor when he was proclaimed Emperor after the deaths of his uncle & grandfather. After being ruler for just 6 years he was murdered – according to legend this was by his own troops on the orders of Philip the Arab, so called as his family hailed from the Roman province of Arabia. In 1917 John Robinson Harrison ship owner & business man (father of Frank) built Scalesceugh Hall in his retirement & in 1919 John Robinson purchased Wreay Hall which is today inhabited by his descendants.
