4,5 Litre Bentley from 1929
In May 2017 and October 2017 the current owner of the Bentley, who bought the car in 2005, added several new and vintage photos of the car and new information about the car's history on the website VintageBentleys.org
According to another member of the website,the car had seven owners between 1953 - 1972.

When Mrs Peel suggests it would be time to buy a new car and to retire the Bentley to The British Museum in Too Many Christmas Trees, Steed says: The quality of a a lady's performance is not measured by her years
