Chassis number: B282CF Registration number: 368XUJ A rare and desirable right-hand drive example dating from July 1947; a drophead coupe by Park Ward (Body No B 282) with a rare early power-operated hood. Only 45 examples of this body were made, making this Bentley particularly uncommon. The car has had an interesting early history, having been originally delivered to the British Ambassador to Egypt & is fitted with a 4.25 litre engine. The car is finished in a subtle shade of Burgundy with magnolia leather hide. The specification of B282CF has detail differences from most other examples, in that the rear windows are larger and the back seat is set further back, thereby allowing the Ambassador to stand during parades. The roof when folded shows a much flatter profile than usual, and the car has an side-mounted spare wheel with metal cover. A comprehensive cosmetic restoration was carried out in the early 1990; this included a complete strip-down to bare metal, and repainting in its current livery, complementing a new leather interior, carpets, refinishing of all wood cappings, and the replacement of the hood and hood bag. The car is now beautifully presented and ready for Continent
