One of only 26 left drives built from 1960 – 1962, this factory air-conditioned aluminum bodied Sports Saloon was in 1991-1992 a previously undamaged largely original subject of a fine restoration to the order of a noted Bentley fancier. The chassis was found to have had some desirable upgrades to S-3 specification previously. The decision was made to upgrade the engine to S-3 specification and to fit an electronic ignition system as well. The resultant performance enhanced by the original S-2 Continental differential is in excess of any Silver Cloud based product. The factory air conditioning system was upgraded at the same time. The automobile was enjoyed in Switzerland until it was traded to us against an S-1 Continental Park Ward Coupe and resold to a very meticulous client residing in Monaco and the UK as well as Florida. It has since been very well looked after by the highly regarded service facility in the UK. It once again became our property (traded on yet another S-1 Continental Coupe) in 2012 and was supplied to a long time local client who recently traded it to us against yet a THIRD S-1 Continental Sports Coupe!! Finished in Bayard Crimson and trimmed in Champagne Connolly hides, this exciting high speed performer will prove a most worthy addition to any connoisseur’s stable. The ownership pedigree of the automobile since our first acquisition in 1989 in entirely original condition aside from an older re-spray, is quite extensive and well documented with photos and internal repair files, which will become the property of the next keeper. Complete owner’s handbooks and small tools in their original H.J. Mulliner special case are included along with copies of the factory work history.
