Converted to coupe from convertible early on, runs excellently!, fires right up, wire wheels, great older restoration holding up very well, interior wood amazing, a great car for the money! Only due to Rolls-Royce Ltd. having acquired the Bentley name in 1931, the remains of the financially troubled, previous competitor, a major part of the British motor industry was saved from oblivion. In 1933 the Bentley 3 1/2 Litre emerged as a clever combination of a chassis derived from an experimental supercharged 2 3/4 litre Rolls-Royce which never saw production and redesigned and tuned 20/25 hp engine. The engine developed around 110 bhp at 4,500 rpm and gave brisk acceleration and a top speed in excess of 90 mph if light coachwork had been specified. The term \\\"The Silent Sports Car\\\" was coined and this model gained even W.O. Bentley\\'s approval, since he was employed by Rolls-Royce from 1931 to 1935 and involved in road testing, but not design, of the early cars. Technical Data: Total production - 1,177 6 cylinder in-line engine, cast iron cylinder block, bore x stroke 82.55 x 114.3 mm (3 1/4 x 4 1/2 in), capacity 3,669 cc; cast iron detachable cylinder head; overhead valves; aluminium alloy crankcase; single coil ignition, stand-by coil; 2 SU-carburettors; single dry plate type clutch; 4 speed gearbox with synchromesh on 3rd and 4th gear, hypoid bevel final drive; suspension by semi-elliptic springs front and rear; 4-wheel brakes servo-assisted; wheelbase 3,200.4 mm (126 in); tyre size 5.50 x 18
