GENTLEMAN HEROES: YU 3250 - THE FIRST BLOWER BENTLEY AND THE MEN WHO MADE IT HAPPEN

LN04309

New product

You probably had your fingers on this famous 1928 4½ Litre Bentley without realizing it—it was modeled by Lesney in its Matchbox “Models of Yesteryear” series, marked No. 5.

Realistically, this is as close as most of us will get to that important car.

While this book is—and certainly started out that way—the story of one particular Bentley chassis, it grew into rather more than that. As the very first of the four immortal Birkin Blower Bentleys, #HF3187 aka HB3404/R after Tim Birkin drastically modified it in 1929/30 (reg. YU3250) is automotive royalty, but precisely because it is the first, this is the perfect occasion to also look at the Big Picture story of how a model that didn’t suit WO Bentley’s philosophy at all came to be in the first place.
