1962 saw the introduction of the S3 variant of the factory bodied standard steel saloon and at first glance it would appear that the all new S3 was merely an S2 with different headlamps. The introduction of the twin headlamps was clearly the most obvious change, but the differences did not end there. Further changes included the introduction of smaller bumper over riders and the repositioning of the front indicators and side lamps into one single unit on the front wing, resulting in an arguably more attractive appearance. Mechanically speaking the S3 was issued with larger 9:1 compression ratio carburettors, improved power steering to aid smoother movement at parking speed and a Lucas vacuum-advance distributor to aid fuel consumption making it almost identical in mechanical specification to the S3 Continental that was being produced at the same time. This particular example, Chassis No B480CN, was completed in May of 1963, finished in masons black with a beige leather interior. It was ordered by Mr J Brazil of Amersham in Buckinghamshire and supplied by Jack Barclay Ltd. It was ordered with electric windows and an auxiliary fuel tank for long distance journeys. Mr Brazil used the car extensively during his seven year ownership period, driving 70,000 miles. The car was then sold via Jack Barclay in 1970 to its second owner, Mr C Price of Ludlow in Shropshire. The car passed to his son in 1974 who owned it until 1987 at which point the mileage was 80,000 miles. The third owners were Mr and Mrs Cornish of Wanstead in London who set about some cosmetic improvements upon purchase, all listed in the cars history file. The car was owned by Mr St John Miller from 1998 to 2000 who sold it to Mr G Purdie. During Mr Purdies ownership, the car received substantial improvements, including a full coachwork restoration, mechanical works and new carpets to compliment the original leather interior which the car still retains today. To date, the car has travelled 97,000 miles from new. It is complete with an extensive history file, small and large tools and handbook. This fine example is serviced, prepared and ready for its fortunate next owner.
