1956 Bentley S1 Continental Coupe by Park Ward For Sale

http://frankdale.com/1-stocklist/343/1956-bentley-s1-continental-
The tremendous success Bentley enjoyed with the R Type Continental continued onto the S Series chassis in late 1955 with a range of new bodies available to collectors. The Park Ward fixed head coupe was originally the brain child of legendary coachwork designer John Blatchley who had been largely responsible for the styling of the R Type Continental by H.J. Mulliner. Six R Type Continental chassis were delivered to the Park Ward works who were then owned by Rolls-Royce. Blatchley was given the task of styling the four drophead coupes and the two further fixed head coupes on the R Type Continental chassis, a design which was later slightly adapted for the marginally longer S1 Continental chassis. Chassis No BC24AF is one of just forty five examples built by Park Ward to Design No 701 in right hand drive on the S1 Continental chassis. It was originally completed in July of 1956, finished in silver and green with a green leather interior. It was then supplied to its first owner, Mr M.L.Marsh of Stratford on Avon. The car remained in the UK until 1968 when it was supplied by Paddon Brothers Ltd to a Mr H Zanger of the United States. It remained in the Massachusetts area until 1989 until repatriated and subsequently restored by P.J. Fischer in his London facility. During the very high quality restoration this fine motor car benefited from a bare metal re-paint in pewter and re-trim in green Connolly hides. From this point the car remained in the UK and has been owned by several collectors, having been supplied on more than one occasion by Frank Dale & Stepsons. The history file is extensive and documents that cars maintenance history from the 1960s onwards, with dozens of invoices detailing the works carried out. Most recently in early 2018 the car benefited from a thorough mechanical review with the prep work costing around thirty thousand pounds, all carried out by a noted Bentley specialist. The car also benefits from the addition of power steering and air conditioning, making it an ideal long distance tourer in any climate. Interestingly enough this motor car is a previous class winner at the Louis Vuitton Concours, highlighting this beautiful examples condition and pedigree. It is complete with aforementioned detailed history file, original coachwork instructions, handbook and complete tools. Frank Dale & Stepsons have previously supplied this superb motor car and are delighted to be able to offer it for sale once again.
