1958 Bentley S Type Continental 1
Bentley R Type Continentals are all million dollar plus cars these days, as are the drop head versions of this car. Mulliner S1 fastbacks aren't far behind which makes our Park Ward fixed head coupe good buying even at today's substantial price. Whether we like it or not, these cars are now very much seen as investments, and with only forty of this body style built in right-hand drive, it is hard to see the future prospects for a car like this as being anything other than gilt-edged.
This late series, matching numbers car with factory power steering is a lovely car to drive. It has benefitted from considerable recent expenditure including new paint in Cotswold Blue over Indigo. It isn't however a concours car and could be used enthusiastically without fear of getting a chip or a mark. The woodwork has been refinished recently to a high standard. The West of England cloth interior is the same as was originally ordered with this car and has some stains but is supremely comfortable and quiet. Air-conditioning has been added in recent times for extra comfort. All in all, it is very desirable example.
Sold originally to the Dunlop Rubber Company and used by its Chairman, it was reportedly used by them for high speed tyre testing. It was sold by them in 1963 and after some further owners was acquired in 1970 in London by a famous Australian actress. There has been just two subsequent owners in nearly fifty years so when we state that these cars are tightly held, we are not exaggerating.
We would like to see the car stay in Australia but it is not expensive by world standards and it will be sold.
Note: The odometer reads in miles and only to 99,999.
