Somewhat earlier in the year I saw this driving towards me in the Market Place in Helmsley - the snap turned out OK. The sun had gone in for just a moment - you can see the sky in the polished mud guards (terminology?) Can someone help me with the make and model of the vehicle please?

Thanks,

Mike

Wonderful reflections in those mudguards, Mike, and what a beautiful hanging basket behind the vehicle Smile Carol

If the registration number is genuine (B11 OWR) the car would have to be early eighties, or newer if it is a "personal" plate. That would suggest that the car is a reproduction, of possibly a Bentley. A genuinely old car couldn't have had letters at both ends of the reg no, that only started in 1963 with the "A" suffix.

Nevertheless, it is a lovely image. Smile

I must concur with lenocm that it is not the Vintage Bentley that it pretends to be (officially, manufactured between 1919 and 31/12/1930) but I'll approach it from another angle: all Bentleys made then had brass radiators with a winged B below the radiator cap on the crown of the arch. Some examples had the radiator cowled over for track racing in later years but never painted; that is a very recent departure indeed.
Although this car is very handsome it doesn't quite have the right proportions for the real thing. The supercharger (the protruding lump just above the number plate) doesn't quite resemble the original either. But the number plate itself is very clever: supercharged 4½-Litre Bentleys, made without the authority of W.O. Bentley himself, were known popularly as "Blower Bentleys" . . . . Type this term into Google Images for a plethora of visual comparisons!

All the above does not affect the quality of your observation and photography which are both spot-on!

Regards
Bill
