I am restoring a 1925 3-litre Bentley with an original VdP 4-seater body. The windscreen that came with the car never klt correct.
To try and keep the body specification correct I recently bought an original folding type windscreen from a Mr. Norman Hood of Kenilworth. His father had removed this windscreen from the 3-litre Bentley YN 8369, depicted on page 1178 of last month’s MOTOR SPORT.The windscreen had been kept for many m.y years up in his attic.
Mr. Hood kindly responded to my advert in the BDC bulletin wants column, requesting att original windscreen, to fit a VdP body. I bought the windscreen and found that Mr. Hood still owns YN 8369 which is now a 3/4,-litre.
It pleases no to see the windscreen on Mr. Hoods car in as original state complete with aeroscreens, within the article on Durability Guarantees. Huddersfield EWART COPLEY
