As per attached picture, the answer has to be found in Germany, which is where this car is owned. My guess is that this is yet another car of which the original body was separated from its chassis in order to build yet another open tourer a la VandenPlas on it. Leyshon James is one of the sources of these bodies, sometimes the original wings are re-used, sometimes these are also new.

Oxborrow & Fuller ad with their patented Continental Open Tourer, which was solely built by VandenPlas, on Bentley, Alvis, Lagonda and Rolls-Royce chassis as ordered. When relations between Oxborrow &Fuller and VandenPlas detoriated by the very strict attitude to outside sales by O & F, VDP took a good long look at the design, and progressed into the Four Door Allweather design which to a large extent is most similar.

Design for B11HM which was built in the colour shown, and then there was a second car, recently sold, which was supplied new in a different colour, but which is now in this same colour as well (but with a beige interior.)

Shame that the wing valances were rounded off behind the wheels - they no longer harmonise with the high door side above the swage line. New curved door-handles too, which don't really accord with straight aspect of the side view. Nice to see it has survived nonetheless.

Since Vanden Plas has only two Silent Travel built (to my knowldge at least) being B61FC and B63FC you have already posted both.
BUT: both are 1292/1 design.
none for Jack Barclay
So my knowledge is uncomplete :(
