Steed's Cars - The Bentleys
"Do you know anyone who wants to buy a vintage Bentley a new two-tone in a shade of green and slightly singed?"
John Steed drove five different vintage Bentleys during season 4 - 6 of The Avengers.

The first time a Bentley appeared in The Master Minds.

Some Bentley chassis were made by Vanden Plas.

Steed calls his Bentley "Fido" (Two's a Crowd) or a "lady" (Too Many Christmas Trees). "Fido" can only be the 4,5 Litre from 1929, because Steed only drove that Bentley and the Vauxhall before Two's a Crowd.
