BENTLEY 4½-LITRE MK V

Saloon, drophead coupé.

Traditional model with similarities to the post-war Mk VI. Park Ward's saloon (no dropheads survive) likewise anticipates the Standard Steel, and there's coil-spring ifs though wheels are wire under the Ace discs, and the ioe engine wasn't scheduled to replace the pushrod type till 1941-2. Very rare, and possibly it didn't deserve the rave notices it got when new.
