There's something wrong here: KR2689 is described by Michael Hay in his 1997 book "Bentley the vintage years" as a hooper limousine, body 7305 registered SS3095

If it's a Vanden Plas body, which I think so, and having that it's from the Olympia show 1929 it could only be KR2697.
Michael Hay states: Vanden Plas body 1621 Olympia show car, burnt out in 1965 rebuilt Symonds tourer.
According to Vanden Plas Coachbuilder Records originally fitted with body 1621 with maroon fabric/maroon paint body.
BUT original registration was GH723 which doesn't seem the case, so I'm lost. Sorry.
