Description

1935 Bentley 3½ Litre Vanden Plas style ‘cutaway door’ Tourer B91EJ

Chassis B91EJ

 

This car is an excellent representation of the sought after Vanden Plas design of exactly the right period. The car was stripped to a bare chassis in the early 1990s, and through that decade was restored from bare chassis up to a high standard. Work included construction of a very well executed body, accurate and of high quality, painted and upholstered very nicely, full engine overhaul incorporating a new cylinder head, gearbox attention, installation of overdrive, new radiator, rewiring, all chrome work re-plated, and much more besides, including all manner of peripheral work. Since completion of this restoration in 1999, the car has successfully covered about 30,000 miles on various club events and tours, both UK and European, with very little trouble, in the hands of the owner of the last 30 years. Today, the car remains in excellent condition, which stands as testament to the quality of the restoration carried out. The history file accompanying the car includes many invoices, and old buff logbook, a long run of MoT certificates, and various other documentation. Driving very nicely, very much benefiting from the overdrive unit, which makes the car very well suited to long distance touring, the car is now ready for the next chapter in its long life.

Snippets: Fines & Crashes

The 1st owner of B91EJ was Richard Myles Rothwell (1902/1973) of Culmer Farm in Witley who did not join the family concern of butchery but decided to study engineering at the Royal Navy College in Devonport.  In October 1933 whilst at Devonport, Midshipman R M Rothwell was fined £3 (plus costs) & disqualified from driving for several months for driving a motor-car dangerously!  In August 1938 a later owner of B91EJ - Alan J. Sainsbury - was being chauffeured by his driver Paul Gaughran from Dover to London when they were involved in a fatal collision with a motorcycle being “ridden at speed” by Harold Hinchcliffe of HMS Enchantress.  Harold’s pillion was Henry Wicks of HMS Pembroke who suffered a broken thigh and serious injury to his pelvis, Wicks died as a result of his injuries.
