This is a really smart 1959 Bentley S1 Saloon finished in White with Grey leather interior. It is the desrable Automatic and Power Steering version and is ready to go to work or to use and enjoy. There are a few cosmetic bodywork areas that will need attention for it to be perfect but then again. I am not asking £39. 95 for it!
Conceived as replacements for the ageing Rolls-Royce Silver Dawn and Bentley R-Type. the all-new Silver Cloud and Bentley S-Type were introduced early in 1955. The duo sported sleeker bodywork on a new box-section separate chassis - Rolls-Royce eschewing unitary construction for the time being - incorporating improved brakes and suspension. the latter featuring electrically controlled damping. Enlargement to 4. 87cc and the adoption of a six-port cylinder head boosted the traditionally undisclosed power output of the dependable inlet-over-exhaust six-cylinder engine. which for the first time was identical in specification in its Rolls and Bentley forms.
Automatic transmission was now standard equipment. with manual transmission a Bentley-only option up to 1957. Power Steering was also instroduced as a deisrable option. Fast - 100mph-plus - relatively economical and cheaper to maintain than the successor V8-engined versions. the classically elegant S1 is arguably the most user-friendly of all post-war Bentleys.
Our car has been with its previous owner for the last 6 years. it has an MOT until April with no advisories and runs beautifully. The car has wanted for nothing in the last few years. had a gearbox rebuild in 2010. and has been restored at some time in the past. The car carries its original registration number and has an incredible. huge service history going back to the early Seventies.
With prices of these cars. moving upwards. this is a classic that can be enjoyed but also can provide an income. it being perfect and ready for Weddings etc. The previous owner paid significantly more for the car many years ago and. with the exclusion of the small areas of bodywork. it is in a superb condition and ready for its new home.
