Harwoods of Pulborough

Harwoods of Pulborough was founded by Wally Harwood in 1931, coincidentally, the same year as the British Central Equitable Trust (a front for Rolls-Royce Limited) acquired Bentley Motors Limited from receivership to form Bentley Motors (1931) Limited:

Fifty years later, Harwoods of Pulborough was awarded the Rolls-Royce & Bentley franchise for East Sussex, England. The association with Bentley continues today with the group representing Bentley from showrooms in Pulborough and Lyndhurst in Hampshire. 

Here's a photo of the Sussex showroom:

The following photos show a collection of Harwoods cars on display at an outdoor car show. 

The number of "N" plates suggests the pictures date from around 1996/1997...

First up, an Azure and a Continental R:

Next, a Brooklands LWB, chassis #TCH57315, the long wheelbase making it comparatively rare:

And finally, a second Continental R:

It's quite an impressive selection of cars.

Please let us know if your recognise the show.

Thanks to ASA Infinity Studios for the showroom photo.
