1939 Bentley 3 ½ litre All-Weather Tourer, Coachwork by Park Ward
The richest man in the world was the Nizam of Hyderabad ….considered a miser with a big heart and an ever bigger vision for his State. His two sons married two Europeanized Turkish princesses,
both granddaughters of the Ottoman Emperor exiled by Mustafa Kamal Ataturk. A Park Ward, silver and blue Bentley was custom made for Princess Niloufer of Berar, an epitome of style and beauty.
She took to the oriental sari as a European idiom of style. Each sari was patented. The Park Ward Bentley was a befitting tribute for the stylish princess.
