The Bentley S3 is a luxury car produced by Bentley from 1962 through to 1965. the body work being carried out by Mulliner. Park Ward Ltd.

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.

Original specification of:
Paintwork Shell Grey
Headlining Grey cloth
Upholstery Scarlet leather
Carpet Red
Hood Grey Everflex

Special features from factory
Electrically operated door windows
Electric aerial
Dunlop tubeless tyres
Heavy gauge frame.

Sometime between 1966 and 1976 the interior was changed to blue leather upholstery and blue carpets.

The car was exported in 1976 by Aston Martin Lagonda (1975) Limited. Newport Pagnell to a Mr Turney of Paoli. PA. USA until 1989 when it was imported back to the UK and purchased by Mr Waterfield of Stoke-on-Trent

The vehicle stayed in Mr Waterfield's possession until June 2014 when it was acquired by a Mr J Hammond of Hilderstone from whom we purchased the vehicle from

A very rare find and presented in immaculate condition.
