1937 Bent­ley 4½-litre Sports Tourer

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Auction News -

Start­ing life as a Mulliner-bod­ied sa­loon, this four-and-a-quar­ter was re-bod­ied in 1960 and was owned by out­spo­ken politi­cian Alan Clark un­til 1993, when it was sold at an auc­tion. Clark – no stranger to splash­ing out fi­nan­cially – spent around £25,000 on the en­gine and sus­pen­sion, mak­ing it one of the fastest ‘Derby’ mod­els driven by a mar­que ex­pert. The car has had three fur­ther own­ers, the ven­dor buy­ing it in 2003 and cov­er­ing around 15,000 miles in that time. De­scribed as be­ing in ‘good or­der through­out’ it’s def­i­nitely tempt­ing.
