One year ago, Bentley specialist William Medcalf discovered the remains of a 1928 Bentley 4½ litre in a London house.

‘I walked into the house and sure enough on the bare entrance hall floorboards was a Bentley cylinder block. I saw a clutch on the stairs, then the conrods – there were literally bits everywhere and throughout the three-storey house,’ Medcalf said.

Despite its 87 years, the Bentley still has its original lead seals in place, and is on its original wire wheels and original tires, though the inner tubes have been replaced. Incredibly, not a single nut and bolt, anywhere on the car, has been replaced either.
