1956 S1 Mulliner Continental Fastback restored, FSH For SaleBentley S1 Continental Fastback by H.J.Mulliner. 10 JML has had 5 owners from new, and every invoice, receipt, order and change of ownership is in a detailed history file which shows the full service history from new. This is the largest and most comprehensive service file we have ever seen. It can not be over stated how complete the history is of this vehicle from the build sheets and correspondence with the factory right up to current servicing work. 10 JML was built for the Managing Director of H.J. Mulliner to put on the Earls Court Motor Show stand. H.J Mulliner used the car for some months before it was sold to its second owner. Grey exterior with Red hide interior. Many extras fitted from new (documented build sheet) including sun roof and rear screen sun blind. She is an auto with power steering. Mechanically excellent with beautiful leather interior. Vehicle completed the BDC Australian Rally 2010,6000 miles without fault. We drove the car to the RREC Annual Rally this year completing the 200 mile round trip again without fault.
10JML has been totally restored in correct colours and Connelly hides as per factory specifications. Paintwork by Whitwells (BDC Concours winner S1 DHC 2009), leather by Greame Hunt, Chrome by Derby Plating, servicing and finishing by Nigel Sandell. It is without question on of the best for sale in the world and we would have no hesitation driving it down to the South of France tomorrow in one journey - there are not many around which could complete that kind of trip without massive recommissioning or breakdowns.
Toolkit, jack and all original accessories including removable torch fitted to car. Handbook and totally extensive service history with all ownership details and every invoice from every bit of work done on the car since it was new. Does any S1 in the world have this total history from new to date - or are you told when you go to buy that 15 years are 'missing' because the car was in storage?
Interesting part exchanges new and old up to £75,000 of the asking price would be considered. Bullion or a good watch would also be accepted as part payment but not land or paintings or antiques sorry!
The car is currently with Nigel Sandell in London and can be viewed there and a test drive arranged.
