Aluminum body work, fenders and paint in excellent condition. Front seat leather also in excellent condition. Remainder of interior good original, carpets showing wear.

Model History
Total production of all Bentley 3 1/2 Litre cars was 1,191 units from 1933-1939. The 3 1/2 Litre has a 6 cylinder ohv engine with two carburetors, a four speed gearbox and servo assisted mechanical brakes. The 1935 3 1/2 Litre Bentley had quite remarkable performance for its year with a top speed of 95 mph with Park Ward Sport Saloon body. This particular vehicle being listed had a well known first owner, P.M. Stewart of the London Brick Company, the largest brick manufacturer in the world (it's said 25% of the homes in Britain were constructed of London Brick). A couple of years after purchasing this car P.M. Stewart became Sir P.M. Stewart a first baronet.
