This W.O. Bentley 4,5L., chassis MR3390, of 1929, wears a one-off 4-seat aluminum Tourer body by Thrupp and Maberly. It was entered in several hill climbs and a.o. the 1932 RAC rally. In 1938 the car was sent back to Thrupp & Maberly to have the windshield raked about 2 inches and to add a second rear door. As can be seen in the period pictures, three types of fenders have been fitted over the years and the car changed colors at least two times.

I am not a natural flatterer, I like to think that I "tell it like it is", politely I hope. So when I tell you that I am very impressed by the contents of your website, it is just not English politeness. I of course love the subject matter but you deal with it in an energetic and respectful manner. I am overwhelmed by the research that has gone into compiling the list of coachbuilders/bodybuilders for Europe and North America. I have never heard of the vast majority of them. Congratulations on an excellent website.
