Description Universally recognized as the most successful and expensive post war Bentley/Rolls-Royce automobile of all time, with the Concours and auction record to prove it. With over 50 show wins and honors it has earned its place in the record books. In August of 1991 at the Rolls-Royce National Meet the Bentley Franay was judged by its peers as "Best of Show" among all competing Rolls-Royce and Bentley automobiles from around the world. Then again in August of 1999 at the Rolls-Royce National Meet held at Dana Point, Calif. it again proved to the world that it was the best by winning the most coveted award that the RROC (Rolls-Royce Owners Club) could bestow, the Royce Memorial Trophy and top senior award "Best of Prior Best of Show." It is also worthy to note that the Bentley Franay, in June of 1995 was awarded "Best of Show" at Hurlingham, England Concours D'Elegance, England's equivalent of our Pebble Beach. It also received the "Spectator Trophy," the "People's Choice" and most popular car in the show. From the Ron Pratte collection. **CHASSIS NUMBER B 20 BH**
