1957 Bentley S1 Continental Flying Spur by H. J. Mulliner. BC14DJ

Registered new on 7th December 1957 to Mr Angus Mackinnon Esq. Chairman of a private bank. Brown. Shipley & Co as a present for his wife. Resident at Hunton Manor. Hampshire. Mrs M Mackinnon kept the six light sports saloon until 28th October 1960 when it passed hands to Berkley Square Garages Ltd. Berkley Square. London W1. where the original registration number was transfered from "KLL 125" to its present registration number of "609 HYP" It then passed ownership to Adams & Adams Ltd of New Maldon. Surrey. 20th March 1962. The following owner Mr Khan Esq of NMT Trading. purchased the Flying Spur on 17th January 1964. He kept the vehicle until 3rd December 1983 When the title passed to Dr P Matthewman. who had carried out a degree of restoration including a bare metal respray and a new beige West of England cloth headlining and some of the vehicles chrome work being re-plated. restored period radio. both carbs rebuilt. new coil and HT leads were fitted very recently. Mr Matthewman sold the vehicle in July 2013 after a thirty year ownership.

The car is painted in Seychelles Blue metallic with a mid blue hides. the car has an Automatic Transmission with Power Steering. However. Very interestingly. BC14DJ left the Factory with a Manual Syncromesh Gearbox. it is believed that only FOUR examples in the S1 Continental Flying Spur's range had this option. In fact. BC14DJ Is only one of Nineteen "D" Series Flying Spur's in a total of only 167 RHD Examples built to Design number 7443.

This rare coach built car is a "Numbers Matching" vehicle with all Factory Chassis Build Sheets. it is taxed and Mot'd and drives very well indeed. The engine is silky smooth and Transmission shifts with ease. shod with correct 820 x 15 crossply tyres it looks fantastic and would make a nice addition to any Bentley collection. £125. 00.
