1966 Bentley S3 Continental DHC by HJ Mulliner / Park Ward for sale
Current customer rating: (99 votes) based on
The S3 Continental was of the altered HJM style. available in fixed head or drop head coupe form.
Of the 328 coach built S3 (Continentals included here). nearly 100 were by MPW.
Again. fixed head or a drop head coupe configurations were available. The most prominent visual difference from the s2 configuration was the four canted headlights.
The final S3 was delivered in 1966. when the new Bentley T-series was readily available.
Like earlier Continentals. the sportier S3 bodywork was manufactured entirely from aluminium. unlike the heavier. steel bodied standard saloon. This combined with higher gearing and the better compression ratios made for a markedly faster car.
Despite being highly desirable. the considerably more expensive Continentals (a premium of 40-50%) were produced in much smaller quantities than the standard S3 saloon. which outsold it by a factor of four.
According to the History Book for chassis number BC. 112. XE
The chassis was completed at Bentley Motors in October 1965. the car being dispatched to Helier Garages for a Mr D Hall in January 1966.
