Description
 
Attractive and desirable, quite forward-thinking in design for its time, and incorporating characterful touches such as a divided windscreen, this car is something different and eye-catching, but at the same time very useable and enjoyable to drive. Sound in wind & limb, correct and mostly original, smartly and tastefully finished in two shades of bluey grey, with all original interior in grey leather. The car drives particularly well, with a lively engine, and is very comfortable on the road. We have a large history file, and it would seem from this that the mileage of 70,000 is genuine. Complete with original 1951 logbook, and MoT tested until May 2014.. Driven over 400 miles by ourselves in a weekend, very enjoyably, and going really nicely. Ready to drive away. SALE AGREED Chassis No. B193HP. Reg No. LXU 595. £29,500. Snippets: Supplied by Brooklands of Bond Street founded in 1931 by Billy Bates & initially located at Great Portland St but by 1937 they had moved to 103 Bond St. During the 30s & 40s Brooklands were agents for Ferrari, Invicta, Isotta-Franschini, Alvis, Healey, Aston-Martin, Lagonda & Bentley. In March 1951 B193HP was delivered to the firm of Carrington & Dewhurst, Eccleston the company was set up at Grove Mill in 1885 by Mr A Carrington & Mr J M Dewhurst, the introduction of artificial silk in 1925 meant that weaving cotton was no longer viable. During WWII the firm produced millions of yards of fabric which were used for parachutes & balloons. Various subsidiaries of Carringtons (Bomford Pollard, YEWCO) took over ownership of the Bentley until September 1965 when it became the possession of Stanley North who was a local bandleader. In 1990 the Bentley had relocated to Black Mill Farm, Headcorn near Ashford between 1769 & 1910 this was the site of a Smock Mill (a 6 or 7 sided building), the name is taken from their resemblance to a farmers smock!
