1949 Bentley 2 Seater Sports "Special" None £16250 + buyers premium


LLG195 is the second Bentley (see lot 61) that the late Mr Wells started to make into a special in the 1990’s. All the hard work has been done ie moving the engine back 18 inches, shortening the propshaft and making a new bulkhead, the aluminium special body is all there bar a few little bits which need finishing. She has the original buff logbook, engine and chassis numbers match. We are told that the engine is free. Comes with loads of spares, outside handbrake, replacement tyres etc. There are loads of technical and written drawings showing the work which has been completed and a list of things to do. Please note the headlights are missing.
Unfortunately Chas became too frail to finish the car before he passed away in 2007 at the age of 93. The car has resided in a garage in the ownership of his wife until now.
Sold as a non runner. Please note the vehicle does come with a current V5 document on the original registration number LLG195.

Auctioneers notes: Bentley Specials are rare, two in one sale! (see lot 61)
