The creme de la creme of vintage cars

Imagine being chauffeured in VJ 2092, a 4.5 litre Sports 4 Seater Bentley which was first registered to EWW Bailey of Ross-on-Wye in July 1929?

VJ is what is now known as a Vanden Plas long wing tourer to distinguish her from the many (many) green ‘Le Mans Reps’. She is however exactly what a gentleman buying a ‘4½ Litre Sports 4 Seater Bentley’ in 1929 would have driven away.
Bailey clearly used his Bentley hard as the works Service Book records a significant number of major accident repairs. Later sold in 1937 to MEA Royce, a Hurricane pilot, both the car and Royce fortuitously survived the war.
VJ 2092 has had a further seven owners with the current owner undertaking a five year fastidious and historically correct last nut and bolt rebuild of the car to bring her to her present condition which is exactly as she would have left Bentley Motors in 1929.
“VJ” has since undertaken many family duties and trips abroad, lapped Le Mans and the banked circuit at Montlhéry, as well as undertaking regular shopping trips to Waitrose.
A very fine car.
