Bentley’s are something of an iconic car brand at our garage in West Sussex. When this 1934 VDP Derby Bentley came to White’s Bodyworks recently, you can imagine the kind of stir that it caused.
Pre-war Bentley’s are few and far between and handling the restoration and repair of this particular car was a great honour for our garage.
Finding a business that can handle vintage car repairs that you can depend and rely on is pretty important. What we bring to the table at White’s Bodyworks is a wealth of experience and a long track record of providing a high level of service.
More About the 1934 VDP Derby Bentley
The 3.5 litre Bentley came onto the market in 1933 and was produced up until the beginning of the Second World War in 1939. The cars were actually called Derby Bentleys because they were produced by Rolls Royce in their Derby plant.
This is probably the sort of car you imagine when you think of 1930s gangster movies and there’s no doubt about the American influence in the design. Nearly 2,500 cars were produced and they quickly got the reputation for being a sporty and durable. In fact, some 70% of the vehicles produced during this time were found to be still around near the turn of this century.
