Bentley S1 Project Rolling Chassis Special
  This is a 1956 Bentley S1 rolling chassis re-imported from the USA (all taxes paid).

It is an exceptional chassis in very good condition. The car was to be my retirement project. but a change of circumstance means I now have to sell it.

It comes with a Bentley 6. 75ltr V8 engine complete with ancillaries and torque converter. SU carburettor induction and a Turbo 400 gearbox which can easily and cheaply be converted to manual shift. The V8 engine was last run 15 years ago and has sat in dry storage since. Also included are front brake discs and callipers. Bentley front surround. big bore V8 exhaust. selection of instruments. nbsp;lightweight seats and Bentley steering column.

The chassis has been sand blasted and painted in red oxide ready for final prep.

The Bentley 'S-type' chassis is in many ways superior to the MkVI or R-type - steering. suspension. rigidity. axle location and ease of alteration to name but a few. My plan was to build a fast road tourer. but any type of  Bentley special could be built from the ingredients here. With donor  chassis' now very scarce this really is a unique opportunity if you hanker after a fabulous Bentley special.

Collection in person only. UK buyers only. Cash on collection please. thank you.
(Collection from Aldridge. West Midlands. WS9)
