I am selling my 1963 Bentley S3 continental after 8 years of happy ownership!
This car is incredibly comfortable and easy to drive, and very quiet!

I purchased it from Fantasy junction in San Francisco in 2012, (- details above)and just did regular service since!

A lot of the history is known and will be communicated to potential buyers!
It includes a complete restoration of the car in England at some point with no expenses spared!
This Bentley got many upgrades to make it more reliable:
Modern starter & alternator & A/ C system, electronic ignition, high quality Stainless steel exhaust.
I had a compression test made before getting the car, and had one done recently with the same very good levels (videos available)

Al though the car had a very presentable interior when I got it (see pictures at Fantasy),
I decided to have it entirely redone to make it even nicer. I managed to find high quality buffalo leather with the same leather grain as the original! The top was redone outside and inside. The wood was redone by Philippe Delaye near Paris.
I had Bose electronics implemented inside an old period-correct radio and it produces an excellent sound through hidden amplified Bose speakers.
Naturally, your phone can be connected to it!

You probably noticed that the surroundings of the front lights are not chromed as they were originally, this is the only visible non-original change, that is how I got the car and I left it this way because I like how it gives the car a more modern and soft look!
This is obviously something very easy to bring back to original, each plate being hold onto the car by 1 small screw!

Everything works on the car, including the A/ C that was recently serviced and blows ice cold.

Very clean underneath (pictures available)
Books & tools

My last enjoyment of it was last summer driving from the south of France to Paris
with the top down, it is ready for a new buyer to enjoy it now!
