Footnotes

  • Dr Alex Moulton owned a series of sports and prestige cars throughout his professional life and this Bentley Brooklands is the last of those vehicles. The Bentley was supplied new in March 1997 by official Bentley distributors P & A Wood of Great Easton, Dunmow, Essex. The cost of car when new, including the 'extras' listed on the original order form, was £108,771.28.

    Included with the car is a comprehensive file of paperwork including correspondence between Dr Moulton and P & A Wood both prior to and following delivery; the original Rolls-Royce Motors order form; service, MoT and insurance documents; and other sundry information. A photograph of the car can be found on page 68 of Alex Moulton's autobiography 'Alex Moulton from Bristol to Bradford-on-Avon - a lifetime in engineering' published by The Rolls-Royce Heritage Trust in 2009. The vehicle will be sold complete with Dr Moulton's cherished registration number '888 EAM', which has been carried by several of his prestige motor cars. The origin of this number can be traced back to April 1964 when it was issued by Wiltshire County Council's Motor Taxation Department to E W Stone Ltd, Station Garage, Bradford-on-Avon and assigned to a Land Rover that was purchased by the Moulton Estate. That vehicle was disposed of around 1979. Following Dr Moulton's death in December 2012 it was necessary to register the Bentley in the name of his personal driver for the purposes of licensing and in connection with the administration of the estate.

    Finished in Racing Green with Sandstone leather interior, Conifer carpets and rugs, and burr walnut wood trim, '888 EAM' has covered approximately 33,000 miles from new and is presented in a condition reflecting this relatively low mileage and regular maintenance. The car is offered with current SORN, Swansea V5C registration document and its most recent MoT certificate, which expired on 5th November 2013.
