Wheelbase Communications Born in 1888, Walter Owen Bentley was the youngest of nine children. Affectionately known as “W.O.”, the littlest Bentley was a railway engineer apprentice in England before he was anything else. He later joined his brother, H. M. Bentley, who was selling French DFP cars out of an office in England. The Bentleys — with W.O. as the mechanical brain of the family — soon bought out the DFP's agency, renamed the business Bentley and Bentley and gradually built up the image of the new company by winning races.
