A fabulous. sought after Vanden Plas design. accurately re-created and built to a very high standard. make this Derby Bentley something very special. The whole car was stripped down to the chassis. and built back up. renovating as necessary. prior to the new body being mounted. very nicely painted and trimmed. new hood. side screens. tonneau cover. etc. Work included full re-wire. engine re-furbishment. re-cored radiator. etc. etc. as well as the fitting of an overdrive. giving relaxed cruising speeds. Since the restoration was completed. the car has covered approximately 10. 00 miles. including three or four trips to the south of France. and now a very desirable car. well 'sorted'. driving very nicely. with lively. smooth performance. light steering. etc. Lovely!

Chassis No. B1GP. Reg No. DGT 446. £145. 00.

Snippets: The Sailing Sicklemores

Delivered to a retired underwriter – Hugh George Sicklemore at his townhouse “Avonhurst” in Chislehurst. Kent. This substantial house has history all of its own – designed by the architect Amos Faulkner for the builder William Willett (credited as the inventor of Daylight Saving Time as early as 1909); occupiers included Alexander Balfour (son of Sir Robert Balfour (1844/1929) of Balfour Guthrie & Co). Alexander's younger brother Alan was killed in action during WWI; Bertram de Quincey Quincey whose father-in-law was Sir Corbert Woodall an engineer who specialised in the gas industry. another resident of Avonhurst with an unusual surname was Arthur Enticknap. inventor & engineer who in 1960 predicted that transport of the future would include 100 ton road-trains with an overall length of 138ft & drivers could earn up to £2. 00 per annum! Mr. Sicklemore's main residence since his retirement in 1922 was Rosilian in Flushing. Cornwall. Both Mr & Mrs Sicklemore were keen yachtsmen & often competed against each other in the Sunbeam class in the Royal Cornwall Yacht Club. Designed by Alfred Westmacott in 1923 these vessels can be sailed either singlehandedly or with a crew. An amusing club rule is that all Solent Sunbeams must end with the letter Y. as the Sicklemores sailed with the Falmouth Club this did not apply & they named their Sunbeams Caprice & Merrythought. When Merrythought was purchased by a later owner who sailed with the Solent she was renamed as Query. thereby upholding the tradition.
