For sale by auction on Saturday 07 March 2015 with Historics at Brooklands. Brooklands Motor Racing Circuit. Weybridge. Surrey. Call 01753 639170
Beginning with the R-Type Continental in 1954. the S-series
Continental chassis would go on to carry no fewer than eleven
variations of four-door sporting saloon between 1957 and 1965. all
bearing the revered 'Continental' title and being born from
coach-builders as celebrated as Park Ward. Franay. Graber and
Farina with top-billing being reserved for the unimpeachable H. J.
Mulliner of Chiswick. West London. The Series I continental was
known simply as a saloon whilst the later SII's were subsequently
referred to as Flying Spurs.

The car offered for sale here today represents the first variant
of its type and registered new on 7th December. 1957 to Mr. Angus
MacKinnon Esq. Chairman of a private bank. Brown. Shipley & Co.
It was bought as a present for his wife. resident at Hunton Manor. br/>Hampshire. Mrs. M. MacKinnon who kept the six-light sports saloon
until 28th October. 1960 when it passed hands to Berkley Square
Garages Ltd. Berkley Square. London W1. Here the original
registration number was transferred from 'KLL 125' to its present
'609 HYP'. It then passed to Adams & Adams Ltd. of New Maldon. br/>Surrey on 20th March. 1962. The subsequent owner. Mr. Khan Esq. of
NMT Trading. purchased it on 17th January. 1964 keeping the vehicle
until 3rd December. 1983 when title eventually passed to Dr. Peter
Mattewman. Dr. Mattewman commissioned a degree of restorative works
to the car during his ownership including a bare metal re-spray and
replacement beige West of England headlining. Furthermore. the
vehicle's chromework was re-plated. a restored period radio was
installed. both carburettors were rebuilt and new coil and HT leads
were fitted very recently before Dr. Mattewman sold the vehicle in
summer of 2013 after a thirty year ownership. This most impressive
motorcar is painted in Seychelles Blue metallic with a mid-blue
interior hide. It sports an automatic transmission with power
steering; however. interestingly. BC14DJ left the factory with a
manual synchromesh gearbox making it a believed one of only four
examples in the S1 Continental range fitted with this option. In
fact. BC14DJ Is only one of nineteen D-series Flying Spur's in a
total of only 167 righthand drive examples built to design number
7443.

This rare coach-built car is an all-important numbers
matching vehicle with all factory chassis build-sheets. It is taxed
and sports a new MoT test certificate. even though by law it does
not require one. As you would expect. she drives very well indeed.
The engine is reported to be silky smooth and the transmission
shifts with ease. a new stainless steel exhaust has only just been
fitted along with new hand-painted coach lines. The interior has
been completely removed and fully refurbished including all of the
leather with new French polishing to all veneers and now looks
beautiful. It is shod with the correct 820x15 cross-ply tyres and
has over 85 hours of very recent work carried out with an Invoice
totalling over £18. 00. This rare coachbuilt H. J. Mulliner saloon
looks fabulous and would grace any serious collection.
