1935 Bentley 3½ Litre

Today we had the privilege and pleasure to purchase this 1935 Bentley 3½ Litre Park Ward Sports Saloon chassis number B-90-EF.

This car was imported from England to Victoria, British Columbia in the seventies and has been a fixture on Saturna Island for several decades.

We purchased it from the family of I.C.MacQuarrie who had owned the car for over 40 years before landing in our shop and changing hands.

All tags seemingly indicate that the car retains its original aluminum body and 3½ Liter engine that match the numbers on the chassis so we are quite excited.

More to come!

£131,420 Barnfind Aston DB6 Vantage

Lots going on the shop, but this Aston is just too great.

It’s a 1967 Aston Martin DB6 Vantage, chassis DB6/2489/R, that sold for £131,420 to China at the Bonhams Harrogate Sale at the Great Yorkshire Showground.

Bonhams described it: “DB6 Vantage chassis number ‘2489/R’ is currently owned by a garage proprietor living in the far north of Scotland, who had looked after the Aston for its previous owner. In the vendor’s possession since 1982, the car has not been used since the 1990s and is presented in ‘barn find’ condition, requiring full restoration. Its accompanying original instruction book contains hand-written notes listing servicing and refurbishment carried out during the late 1970s/early 1980s, recording the total mileage on 23rd June 1981 as 82,057. The current odometer reading is 88,613 miles. Sold strictly as viewed, this exciting DB6 Vantage restoration project is offered with old-style logbook and Swansea V5 document.”
