1963 Bentley S3 Continental Saloon: One of Only 18 Supplied with
James Young CV100? Saloon CoachworkThis 1963 Bentley S3 Continental
Saloon is an excellent original example that was originally
delivered in November 1962 to Sir Egbert Cadbury through Jack
Barclay?s London showroom. Metallic green with tan leather
interior. Runs and drives but would benefit from servicing and
minor cosmetics at this time. This right-hand-drive chassis was
fitted with James Young body no. 5238 to design no. CV100, one of
just 18 Continentals so equipped. In addition to serving as Vice
Chairman of his family?s chocolate business, Sir Egbert was also an
ace military pilot and a fervent Bentley enthusiast, having owned
Speed Six, Derby, S1, and S2 Continental models. In fall 1965, J.S.
Inskip, Inc. facilitated acquisition of this car by Herbert Hale
Allen of New York. It then passed to Jay Haft of Connecticut,
another Bentley enthusiast with a fondness for postwar Continental
models. Mr. Haft owned the car for 45 years, during which the car
was repainted in the current metallic green. From new, this car was
optioned with an electric radio, aerial, and front window lifts,
along with full Continental instrumentation, including a
tachometer. Still retaining its original fawn leather upholstery,
it presents as a largely unrestored car with patina commensurate
with long-term Bentley enthusiast ownership. The Final Development
