BENTLEY 8-LITRE

Various: chassis only listed.

A true super-car: even W.O. imposed no weight limit on the factory guarantee. Engineering is typically Bentley, with fixed-head ohc engine, separate four-speed 'box, and massive frame with tubular X-members. New is the hypoid rear axle, and there's lots of elektron casting work to keep the weight down. Choice of 12ft or 13ft wheelbases and three axle ratios: almost anything should do the ton. Survival rate very high, but too few have escaped the modifiers.
