The Bentley was the subject of a ground up restoration in 1992 at a reputed cost in excess of £60, 000. This included stripping the car to a bare chassis, overhauling the engine with new pistons, inspecting the gearbox and overhauling the clutch. The woodwork was restored, the interior retrimmed in beige Connolly leather with matching leather-bound Wilton carpets, and the coachwork was repainted in Garnet (an attractive shade of dark maroon).
The most recent owner purchased the Bentley in November 1997, and soon after put it into store with the remainder of his collection. We have recently carried out recommissioning work including: freeing up the braking system, refurbishing the ignition system and fitting a new battery, refurbishing the fuel system including cleaning/ sealing the tank and fitting a new fuel pump, replacing a broken valve spring and resetting all tappets, cleaning and machine polishing the bodywork and chrome-work, and greasing and checking the underside.
The car now starts, runs and drives very smoothly, but from a safety perspective needs attention to a seized front brake shaft (which may free up with use), and the wire wheels should be ideally be re-spoked and repainted. Other advisable items include replacing some missing Autolube pipes and the gearchange reverse lock.
Complete with copies of the original factory build records, some ownership history and a photographic record of the restoration this most elegant example has the potential to provide its next owner with pre-war Bentley motoring at a relatively modest cost.

1959 was an important year in the history of Rolls-Royce and Bentley when looking at the mechanical development of the companies.

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 ...
