Bentley Vanden Plas-style ASH FRAME for 3 1/2-litre Derby Bentley Open Tourer

Unused as-new Vanden Plas-style ASH FRAME for 3 1/2-litre Derby Bentley Open Tourer

Ash frame by Tony Robinson coachworks of Gerrards Cross. Do please 'Google' Tony Robinson coachworks and you will find recent Rolls-Royce & Bentley editorial and advertisements which feature his replacement bodies on Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost and Rolls-Royce Phantom II chassis.

This ash frame has been dry stored for many years and was only recently unpacked and loosely assembled with g-clamps as you see here.

The owner had been planning to re-body his 1934  3 1/2 litre Derby Bentley Sports Saloon which he had been using up until the 1970s, but work as a university professor occupied his time rather more than his Bentley project, and indeed he has only recently sold his Bentley.
