For Sale a 1956 Bentley S1 just unearthed from a deep 25 year slumber! We purchased the car from the original owner whos Father bought the car new!

We are in the process of fitting a replacement trim and will show photos o the interior shortly (This was from an S3 and has individual seats in good condition but may need colouring to your choice we can also arrange this at extra cost)

We have just put 4 tyres on the car and the car I booked in to our local garage to get running; we cannot guarantee the condition of the engine however w do believe it will be Ok as it drove into the garage and was stood up correctly.

We will update the listing accordingly before the listing ends with the state of play as regards the engine. We cannot answer any more questions as we do not know!

This is a rare opportunity to purchase a 1 owner from new classic Bentley for restoration. an original UK car which comes with the registration number and we do have an old V5 from 1978.

The previous owner has the old buff original log book and some old papers and if these turn up we will of course send them on to the winner of the auction.

£500 payable by bank transfer at the end of the auction and payment in full by bank transfer within 3 days.

We can deliver the car anywhere in UK please ask for a quote.

Thank you.

Update. We have not yet been able to gain access to under the bonnet but are hopeful that this will be done shortly. If we are unable to do so we will not force anything so the car will be sold untoutched.

We are supplying the car with the new seats but at present do not have the runners for the front seats so car will be sold without the runners unless we are able to locate some in the meanwhile.

We are also trying to locate some seats for an S1 at present. if we are able to find some then these will be included instead of S3 seats.

Thank you.
