1957 Bentley for Sale 1957 Bentley S1 for Sale Buy This Classic 1957 Bentley S-1 New paint. fresh chrome work. new wide white wall tires

This is a rare and beautiful 1957 Bentley for sale. This classic luxury car has been with the same loving owner for over 20 years. Bentley and Rolls Royce set a very high standard of automobile design. comfort. and class. The 1957 Bentley S-1 is a design that will always emulate these traits. Everyone stops to take notice when seeing this beautiful 1957 Bentley.

This particular 1957 Bentley for sale was part of a fleet of over 30 vintage cars owned by a special classic limousine service. This company owned 6 Rolls Royces and Bentleys. and these high class vehicles were primarily used for weddings. The owner of this special events limousine company retired about 5 years ago and he kept this Bentley for his personal use. The time has some to let this beautiful classic go to a new. lucky owner.

Since this Bentley was the personal car of the owner of the limousine company. little expense was spared when it came to care and improvements on the car. The body has been repainted within the past year. and the paint is nice and bright. The red pin striping helps to accent the beautiful red interior. The front grille and some of the other bright work has been rechromed. so in the sunlight this car really shines. There are new white wall tires with fewer than 100 miles on them helping to complete the vintage beauty of this 1957 Bentley.

Mechanically this car has received all the attention you would expect from a car with such a rich and generous history. Since this 1957 Bentley was used professionally for years. it passed inspection and was subject to regular maintenance as required by law. The brakes were just treated to brand new brake drums and new shoes. The emergency brake works and the suspension is in good condition. The engine runs well and has good compression. The head and valves were done at 5000 miles (the current odometer reads just over 21k. which is most certainly 121k). This is a car that is ready to jump in and enjoy.

The red leather interior has been replaced but it was done to such a high standard that it looks convincingly original. The correct red wool carpeting has also been replaced complete with plush padding underneath. The headliner is good and the interior wood is quite presentable. The fancy wood dash looks great and it has working gauges and an updated radio. The rear passengers can enjoy the beautifully varnished wood drop down "picnic" tables.

Please take a moment to page through the nearly 200 photos in the two galleries below. There are also videos of the engine starting and running so you can get a good feel for the reliability of this wonderful piece of automobile history.

Thank you! Let me know if you have any questions or interest in this classic 1957 Bentley for sale!
