Originally black. P165 Ellman-Brown 'BentleyThe Silent Sports Car'.
5 former owners. Large history file.
1st owner. one RL Jump. returned the car to Hooper after 1200 miles and less than 12 months. possibly because of his age( said to be an "elderly man") and the particularly low roof line may not have suited him.
Previous owner in California 1965-2009. Less than 6000 miles in 44 years and many years on display in a car showroom in Indiana. Because of the shrinkage in a replacement vinyl hood. rendering it unusable. I don't think it could have been out in the rain in that time!
1956- Correspondence with Bentley Motors evidencing work in 1949 at 33. 75 miles including "all work necessary at that time including reboring cylinder block. upplying and fitting new pistons. eplacement crankshaft and new bearings. ogether with attention to the slipper drive. tappet and rocker mechanism. starter motor drive. clutch. rear axle. rear shock damper links. petrol pumps. dynamo starter and such other items as required attention. " A long time ago but only 52. 00 miles ago. as shown by powerful. urgent engine and running gear.

In addition to the comprehensive cosmetic restoration. the car has been thoroughly checked mechanically & a myriad of small jobs attended to leaving the car in superb running order. The car has a very tight feel to it reflecting the low mileage from new & is going to be in impeccable condition when finished. We will of course conduct a full photo shoot at that time of the car resplendent in its new paint.
