"I purchased the car from Stanley Mann (Racing) in October 2016. After a detailed Clare Hay report it is clear, that FS3602 was built in June 1930. She is now in Germany."

"1929 VINTAGE BENTLEY 4½ LTR LE MANS
Registration Number: GJ 7702 Chassis Number: FS3602 Engine Number: XR3346
Price: £ Excellent value

GJ 7702. Supplied new in 1929 to the owners of one the world’s largest petroleum companies, the delivery date coinciding with the 21st birthday of the driver and later sold back to Bentley Motors for their own use. The file shows a continuous history and I remember owning this 25 years ago. Time flies.

Being a 1929 car she benefits from her original heavy pattern chassis and self wrapping brakes. There is a huge history file detailing the owners and correspondence between them, so set aside enough time for a good read. Cosmetically very appealing and driving splendidly with the benefit of overdrive and fitted with luggage rack, deep storage boxes and twin spare wheels. Ideal for long distance cruising and would be a welcome entrant at any event across the world. And on that subject if you want to know how enjoyable a proper 4½ Litre Bentley is then come in and talk to us.

Finished In British Racing Green With Green Leather Interior."

This car is for sale as of February 23, 2016.
