Description

1955 Bentley S1 Continental Park Ward Drophead Coupe

- Only covered 52,000 miles from new

- The second S1 to be built

- Early split tail-lights and beautiful three-piece mahogany dash

The success of the R-Type Continental ensured that a similar lightweight high-performance version S-Type would be offered as part of the Bentley range. Consequently, the S1 Continental was produced between 1955 and 1959 with a production run of 431, with very few Park Ward Drophead Coupe examples.

This beautiful UK supplied example was ordered and delivered new to Sir. J. N. Dean, and has continuous and fully documented history.

A rare opportunity to own one of Bentley's most elegant cars.
