1947 Bentley Other
This car was found in the garage of an elderly gentleman. All the original drivetrain and most of the interior was gone. However he did have almost all of the original wood chrome and stainless. It was decided to restore it with as many modern appointments as could reasonably be done. The first was to change the original crank open sunroof to a multi-position power sun roof. Next was the drivetrain. A 10-bolt rear end was installed then the proven 700R4 automatic overdrive transmission and power comes from a new GM Performance "fast burn 385" it's the same engine as the ZZ4 but with added horsepower from the aluminum fast burn heads. It has plenty of power but not overkill. The interior highlights a Flaming River polished stainless steel tilt steering column with their falling water steering wheel leather covered front seats with 6-way power power tinted windows power door locks power disc brakes air conditioning a custom built center console the includes a Pioneer unit with sound three screen video navigation and communication systems and then to top it all off cruise control. Now to give it the best ride possible it has a custom suspension that includes cold rolled tubular A-arms and rear brackets that support Air Ride Technologies Ride Pro 3 air ride suspension system. The car has late model Bentley 20" chrome wheels with Goodyear GT tires.
