The Bentley S2 was a luxury car produced by Bentley from 1959 until 1962. Based on the Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud II, the S2 replaced the straight-6 engine of the Bentley S1 with a new aluminum V8 engine displacing 6.2 L (6230 cc/380 in³). With this new engine, the S2 offered significantly better performance than the previous cars.
However, we all know, these cars are not about performance but rather opulence and style. There is something unique about arriving to your destination in a Bentley.
This is an excellent example for those who prefer to enjoy their Bentley rather than just look at in the garage or on the lawn of a Concours event. The owner of this car has done much of the work/maintenance himself during his 20-year ownership. He purchased it from the original owner here in Southern California. For the next 10 years, the current owner painstakingly restored every system on the car. It took him nearly 2 years alone to do the woodwork on the interior.
The engine was rebuilt about 10 years ago and recently, he rebuilt the transmission as well as upgraded the brake system. Unfortunately, the owner has some health issues and is no longer able to work on the car himself, which is what he truly enjoys.
If you are in the market for a value-priced Bentley that is ready to be driven and enjoyed, then look no further. The owner of this car spent tens of thousands of dollars restoring and maintaining this car. He was very active in the local Rolls/Bentley Auto Club as well as a reputable concours judge.
The car comes complete with records of the service, detailed shop manuals (Over $100 each), owner’s manual, tool kit ($1,500 value), and extra keys.
