…This is a true vintage Bentley: Vintage Bentley cars, or “W.O.s,” refers to the cars produced between 1919 and 1931 under Walter Owen Bentley’s direction at Cricklewood. In 1931, Rolls-Royce purchased the Bentley firm and moved it to Derby. Thus, the cars produced there from 1931 until 1940 are commonly referred to as “Derby Bentleys” and have no commonality with Vintage Bentleys, other than the badge. It was also common to have many of the saloons converted into Tourers (convertibles), but this is an original and is in perfect condition. Vintage Bentley cars were consistently well made, powerful, responsive, and surprisingly easy to drive—once you mastered the synchro-less gearbox and the center gas pedal. Absolutely beautiful!
