1929 Bentley 4½-Litre (5.3) Supercharged Tourer Recreation by Graham Moss.



Chassis Number: RC2209

Registration number: SV8387



An exacting Recreation by renowned expert Graham Moss finished in August of 2000. This car was built up on an RC chassis using as many original components as possible to ultimate blower Bentley Specification. During the process the engine was upgraded to 5.3 litre capacity with as many original components as possible; when they were not available, they were remanufactured, often to improved, more powerful or durable versions of the original designs.



The car was built around a new 130-in. wheelbase chassis, with some original components. Its engine was created from the best available parts, including a new 5.3-liter cylinder block with a new magnesium “Birkin Blower” racing-style crankcase and winged sump, counterbalanced billet crankcase and connecting rods, modern shell bearings and forged pistons, and a new, correct supercharger. The engine is mated to an original 4½-Litre “D” type gearbox, with overdrive fitted for easy highway use, and a 3-Litre steering box converted to 4½-Litre specifications.



The front axle and steering arms are also original components, as are the back axle casing, the self-wrapping brakes, the instruments, the dynamo and starter motor, and the pedal shaft, while the brake drums and wheels were remanufactured to original specifications. Invoices for Moss’ work on file deeply detail the level of workmanship invested into this “dream project.”



This Bentley will make a fantastic rally machine or simply a sorted fast road car for the annual dash down to LeMans. We will conduct a full photo shoot upon its arrival in December.
