First Edition. Signed by Author. After outlining the story of Bentley Motors and the Rolls-Royce takeover, the author gives a thoroughgoing account of Rolls-Royce s search for a car with which to relaunch Bentley before the earlier glories began to fade. Then he gives a highly detailed technical analysis of the 3 1/2 Litre, covering every aspect of the chassis, running gear, engine and transmission. This is followed by equivalent coverage of the succeeding 4 1/2 Litre and the short-lived Mark V. Each of these receives comprehensive treatment, including information on differences from previous models, revisions, the range of bodies available from coachbuilders, performance and behaviour, and appearances in competitive events. There are also chapters on using the cars today and on the practicalities of ownership, with advice on parts availability, maintenance and preservation. Prev ownership on prelims. pp. 160 illusts #0818
