1927 Bentley Jackson Special 'Old Mother Gun'
The first ever Bentley 4½-Litre ' was constructed in June 1927. It was completed with a Vanden Plas Le Mans-type body and delivered to Captain Woolf Barnato for use as a Bentley Motors team car. It was Woolf Barnato who gave 'ST3001' the nickname Old Mother Gun. She made her debut at the Le Mans 24 Hour Race on 18th June 1927, Old Mother Gun broke the circuit record in only the second lap of the race, still with the convertible hood up. Unfortunately, she retired from the race after 35 laps while leading, having become embroiled in the infamous White House Crash that eliminated seven cars, including the entire Bentley team.
The 'Old Mother Gun' is one of my Vintage panels collection.
