The Bentley S1 debuted in October 1955, carrying the smooth and refined 6-Cylinder engine coupled with a sophisticated, four speed automatic transmission. While Rolls-Royce, Bentley‚s parent firm, had long disdained the publication of horsepower ratings, the S1 and its cousin, the Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud had more than adequate power!
As with its predecessor, the R Type, a Continental variant of the S1 was offered, with higher compression for better performance, a shorter radiator profile, upgraded braking, a higher rear axle ratio, and custom coachwork produced in limited series by Park Ward, H.J. Mulliner, and James Young amongst others.
Our unique car is accompanied by wonderful documentation, including a copy of the original purchase order placed with Berkeley Square agent Jack Barclay.
Records indicate that the Bentley was delivered to its first owner, Fred Nield Esquire on 06/02/1959 and was registered to him at his home in Alderley Edge, Cheshire. Mr Nield had ordered the car specially from Jack Barclay Ltd in Berkeley Square and sadly the car changed hands in December 1959 due to the passing of Mr Nields.
Today, this wonderful Continental remains largely original and beautifully preserved, including a remarkable Deep red Connolly leather interior with wonderful suppleness and spectacular original woodwork that presents as fine furniture. Both the original chassis and body plates are still present in their expected locations, as are the original H J Mulliner sill plates. The engine compartment and chassis have been well looked after and are thoroughly detailed.
Gentlemen enthusiasts adore the S-Series Continentals today as much as when they were new, for their wonderful ‚magic carpet‚ road feel, able to devour long distances in single bounds with great comfort and adequate power.
