For the last 50 years, Robert McLellan (host and founder of VintageBentleys.org) has collected anything and everything to do with W.O. Bentleys, including 3-litre Chassis no. 869. The idea in his head was to account for every 1919-1931 Bentley ever produced — and track it from back then to the present time. I'm sure he had no idea how he would eventually present all the history he had accumulated. And then, as if on cue, the Internet came along...

We first discussed the development of this resource in 2002 and gradually began to sort out — no exaggeration — a roomful of photographs and written material, some dating back as much as 85 years. The first batch of digitised information was presented to the vintage Bentley world via this website on February 14, 2007. The response was overwhelming and heart-warming. As word spread, we had readers writing in with information and photographs for the cars they owned or knew about.

Today as we continue to enrich the website with Robert's archives, it is also constantly updated (sometimes several times a day) with reader-contributions. These are precious trails, sometimes providing vital links in establishing a car's continuous history, besides the delightful anecdotal information we get to share with you all.

Enjoy this website — it is yours. Enjoy also what you will often see — a mix of British and American spellings! We have taken a conscious decision not to do much about it. Reasons: i) History belongs to everybody; ii) Getting the information up there (and there is lots) is more important. So, by and large, we leave the spellings as we receive them — for example: American from Matt Sysak, British from Olle Ljungström... and the W.O. remains true-blue.
