Description

Only 312 Bentley S3 Continental of all types were produced and this beauty is one of a mere 76 of its' type bodied by H J Mulliner, Park Ward Ltd after the two firms' merger

At the time of production these were one of the most expensive cars available - hence the tiny numbers produced

This elegant motorcar has been owned by the same chap for the last 30 years and purchased her from our friend Peter Fischer, of Putney

Little use has been made of her and indeed when we received her she was in need of some help and tender care

The underside enjoyed some new body mounts and a general tidy up whilst a little paintwork here and there together with a full coach polish ensured she was as sharp as a pin

All chrome work was metal polished to a mirror finish

Internally we stripped out everything and replaced the magnolia hides using a dark tan complimenting this with dark blue Wilton carpets bound in dark tan leather

New style inertia reel seat belts in blue are fitted front and rear with chrome fixings and buckles, whilst from new she had electric front windows and soft top operation

She really does look a treat and on the road she floats along merrily, almost wafting 'ever so gently'
