1934 Bentley 3½ Litre H.J. Mulliner Two Door, Four Seat Sports Saloon. B66AH (1934)




Chassis No. B66AH
An unusual and delightful, handsome and light in appearance, two door, four seat saloon, in excellent condition. The car features particularly pretty front wings with ‘trouser crease’, opening rear quarter lights, fabric covered roof, rear-mounted spare and an impressive array of lights, front and rear. Nicely painted in black and silver, with a lovely red leather interior, harmonising with the wheels, also red. Several folders of history contain correspondence, MoT certificates, and old buff logbook, etc, etc, and confirm excellent maintenance and repair work over the last forty years or so, with some sizeable invoices along the way. A great deal has been done to a high standard, and as a result the car is a lovely example, and is also nicely out of the ordinary in terms of style and configuration. We have just completed an engine refurbishment including re-bore and new pistons, as well as a service and general preparation. The car is running very nicely and offered newly MoT tested. Lovely!

The first owner of B66AH was Walter Dunsdon Pocock (1879/1939) who by all accounts was a man of generous proportions - his great-nephew wrote that Walter had a “specially reinforced Bentley”!  When Walter Pocock died he weighed around 22 stone & had only owned B66AH for 5 years prior to his passing.  He went to London to seek his fortune when he was just 19, in 1901 he married Emily Long, his best friend’s sister & in 1902 started Long & Pocock Dairy in Ealing in partnership with his brother-in-law Walter Long.  Within a few years the two Walters had formed Wiltshire United Diaries & by 1917 this had evolved into United Diaries & was eventually was absorbed into Cow & Gate.  The Long & Pocock familes intermingled not just in business but also in marriage leading to many in-laws with the same names as it was with the two Walters.  The electric milk float was invented by Philip Vivian Pocock who was the son of James Pocock – Walter’s brother!  It is thought that B66AH was probably laid up during WWII but by 1944 the car was registered to Electroflo Meters Co of Park Royal, London.  This company was established in 1925 & by 1959 they had some 500 employees!  EMC specialised in producing industrial measuring instruments & controls for glass-melting and furnaces.  In the late fifties B66AH was with John Brian Naylor of Stockport, an ex-merchant navy radio officer who was the recipient of the Africa Star, the Burma Star & the Atlantic Star for his services during the conflict.  After WWII John Naylor became a motor dealer and in 1954 he raced a Cooper-MG in the Tourist Trophy race  with George Pitt as his co-driver, due to engine issues they didn’t complete the race.  During his racing career John raced in several Grand Prix and eventually developed his own Cooper–based JBW-Maserati alongside Fred Wilkinson.   From 1981 / 2005 B66AH was with Dr Robin Osler Barnard, a neuro-pathologist & classic car enthusiast whose garage included several Rolls-Royce Silver Ghosts, a PII and a 1912 Rover Coupe which Malcolm Campbell had given to Marjorie Trott when they married!
