According to the books, there were 2 WO Bentley's clothed by Binder:
1. 6 1/2 Litre Speed Six #LR2796, Limousine de Ville, sold to Luigi Naintree, car in USA with original body.
2. 8 Litre #YR5084, Coupé, sold to W.W. Astor, car scrapped in 1938.
The car in the picture is obviously not a coupé, but it looks in many ways different to the known 6 1/2. Moreover the caption under the picture states is as a Bentley 8-Litre.
What is it?

Logically it should be 8 litre, since it was broken up by Bentley Motors in 1938....
BTW. I've never seen the 61/2. Do you have any picture?

It is 6 1/2 Litre Speed Six #LR2796, Limousine de Ville, sold to Luigi Naintree, car in USA with original body, probably a translation error (Coupe de Ville)
See, Bentley the Vintage Years, p.61, pic 118, which shows the same car.

Finally a picture of #LR2796 taken in 1988 in the USA. Subtle mirror solution ;-)

B 63 CW delivered 1935 to Marchioness of Cholmondeley in France, described as a 4door 4light sports saloon by Binder in Bernard King’s book ‘The Derby Built Bentleys’. Is this photo correct, which looks more like a 2door fixed head coupé? :?:

B 63 CW had engine D4BY in 1935, does anyone know when and why this engine was transferred to B 90 FB Park Ward Bentley (guaranteed to R. A. Gallie 1936 with registration WS 9501, currently registered to me, E. C. Gallie)? :?:



B 63 CW was registered in 1935 with number BXH 312 (London). We know this registration number, BXH 312, was used on B 90 FB in U.S.A. certainly by one owner in the 1970s, Mr. Roy (Butch) D. Reeves of Americus, Georgia, who also owned and restored B 90 FB. Can anyone explain the connection? :?:

With best wishes,
Ewan

The first picture on this page is #B63CW. It apparently was dismantled, hence it engine became available to be fit in another car.

Apparently so, however the mystery remains why and when B 63 CW was dismantled, and the engine transferred to my car B 90 FB. Also, it seems that the registration number BXH 312 was transferred as well, American club registration cards show this, but why?
I remain confused,
Ewan
