Bentley 3 1/2-litre Vanden Plas Derby Tourer RESTORED RUNNING project consisting :-

This running and driving restored rolling chassis has had a complete and total rebuild over the last 3 years including:

1) Complete rebuild of engine, gearbox, suspension, steering, springs, brakes and so on

2) Complete rebuild of rear axle including high ratio differential to equate with modern traffic

Click on any photos to enlarge and run a slide show

3) Every bearing and spring on the car has been renewed. Every nut and bolt cleaned, re-threaded and nickel plated.

The whole car has been rebuilt to the highest standards

No short cuts have been taken - nothing has been missed

The car is currently being rewired using the correct wire and contacts.

It drives beautifully.

The new Vanden Plas frame and skin is included with the rolling chassis OR available separately as in our other listing, price adjusted to reflect.

Originally a Park Ward Coupe supplied to Mr E G Wardrop in 1935 with registration number MG 6000. Body was later replaced with a saloon body and this too fell by the wayside many decades ago, so we are informed.


In addition to the project offered above, there is also a Park Ward bonnet and set of wings that could be sold with the body

.....also Hood parts and handles

.....also the chrome and also the lights - all in very good order.

The last photo shows what the finished car could look like
