Need to find the mother of all PODS . . .
I don't exactly have an answer or a suggestion about shipping it, but it would seem that the typical PODS container may not be robust enough to handle it. If you have all the loose bits properly crated and inventoried I'd bet that you could piggyback with another VSCCA member when they move something in that direction. It may take you a few trips, but I'd suggest networking with fellow VCSSA people over PODS.
Nice Bentley though! not quite pre-war, but that's when cars were made properly! THat must be a hoot to drive. Good friend of mine has a '29 Bentley comp car w/ 4.5L (no blower though). Totally 'ole school with roped leaf springs and steering wheel. It's like driving a locomotive on rubber tires, but it's a whole lot of fun! I'll grab a picture next time I'm over there and post it to this thread.
Are you a VSCCA member? VSCCA does a pretty cool hillclimb at a private estate in Masachusetts (Hunnewell Hillclimb). Not uncommon for several unmolested, original race Bugattis to attend.
Good luck with the restoration!
PS-just noticed the Brooklands windscreens - nice! Now THAT'S motoring!
