Models of Yesteryear Y-5/2; 1929 Bentley 4.5 Litre Models of Yesteryear

Scale: 1:52

There are three Le Mans Bentleys in different scales produced by Models of Yesteryear. Y-5/2 is later and slightly larger then Y-5/1, Y-2/4 came along in 1985 in much larger 1:40 scale. Y-5/2 has Union Jacks, a folded screen and silver wire wheels and it was made from 1962 to 1968 in 1:52 scale.

There are a couple of rare and sought after versions; they are the early releases in metallic bright green, sometimes called apple green or candy green, and have green, red or dark red seats & tonneau covers. British Racing Green cars with red racing number 6 are also hard to find. Otherwise it is reasonably common, you will also see it in vacuum plated finish, these have usually been removed from a desk ornament or an ash tray. In 1964 the casting was changed from the radiator being integral to the body casting, to having it cast separately. Where the casting is integrated the radiator cowling is painted green, with the grille painted silver, the separately cast radiator is all silver.
