1956 Bentley S1 Pickup For Sale

To be offered on Saturday 11th May at Heythrop Park, Chipping Norton OX7 5UF. For further details please contact the office on +44 (0) 1926 691 141. Registration: To be registered Chassis Number: B69BC Engine Number: Not Specified Number of cylinders: 6 CC: 4900 Year of Manufacture: 1956 RHD/LHD: Right Hand Drive Estimate (£): 25,000 - 30,000 (+buyer's premium of 15% including VAT @ 20%) -Originally a 1956 Bentley S1 Saloon purchased new in London by Charles Lloyd-Jones -Sold to Australia and became the property of the Right Honourable 6th Earl of Stradbroke, Keith Rous -Converted to a utility vehicle by coachbuilder George Williams of Camperdown, NSW -Painted in Banana Yellow with a bespoke timber load bed positioned where passengers would normally sit -Currently wearing the logo of a previous owner, 'Mount Fyans Black Angus Herd' -Great promotions/advertising vehicle. The World's Poshest 'Ute' The Bentley S1 Standard Steel saloon replaced the R-Type Standard Steel saloon which had been in production, with modifications, since 1946. An extra 3 inches were added to the R-Type's wheelbase thereby enabling five adults to travel in comfort with increased headroom and more boot space for extra luggage, however, the creator of this unique vehicle obviously required even more headroom and luggage space and modified this lovely Bentley to enable 10 Sheep to travel in comfort with basically, unlimited headroom. This, remarkable, right-hand drive Bentley S1, was originally purchased in London in 1956 by Charles Lloyd-Jones and subsequently became the property of the Right Honourable 6th Earl Stradbroke, Keith Rous who took the car to Australia. There, it was converted to a utility vehicle by coachbuilder George Williams of Camperdown, New South Wales who positioned a 'Woody-style' bespoke timber load bed where the rear seat passengers would normally be and painted the whole car a vibrant Banana Yellow. It is currently wearing the logo of a previous owner, 'Mount Fyans Black Angus Herd'. Returning to the UK in 2012, this amazing car has formed part of our vendor's private collection ever since. Not UK registered but with all taxes paid, this S1 is a great promotions/advertising vehicle and is perhaps the world's poshest Ute?
