1937 Derby Bentley 4.25 litre Sports Saloon by Park Ward For Sale
1937 Derby Bentley 4.25 litre Sports Saloon by Park Ward finished in Dark Grey and Cream with light Grey hide interior. B120KT is a wonderful example which has been maintained to a very high standard by marquee specialist Glen Grindrod, many of their invoices being present in the large history file. The car has also had a documented £10,000 overhaul to the brakes, springs and fitment of the high ratio (3.64/1) back axle, the latter giving this Derby excellent ability at motorway cruising. ACJ 363 has been used for many RREC rally's and has been showed at RREC events, in particular it is featured in the renowned Alpine Compendium book for the commemorative rally in 1973, the leather book is present in the history file. The body and paintwork are in super order, the colours working very well with the lines of the exceptionally elegant Park Wards body. The interior is equally fine with soft leather and excellent woodwork. The last owner of this Bentley, a Cambridge Professor, kept the car correctly maintained and in regular use in the summer months, it is an absolute joy to drive and is assuredly one of the finest driving Derby Bentley’s we have had. An idea car for showing and touring.
