1957 Bentley S1 Continental Fastback by H.J.Mulliner For Sale

The success of the R Type Continental between 1952 and 1955 lead to the creation of the S1 Continental chassis, which was released in April of 1955. For the first time Bentley enthusiasts had a greater choice of coachwork designs to choose from with H.J. Mulliner and Park Ward responsible for bodying the majority of the S1 Continentals produced. One of the most popular designs was the fastback coachwork by H.J. Mulliner, built to design number 7400. It was modified to fit the 3 inch longer S1 Continental chassis and in styling terms was adapted further from the R Type Continental with a raised front wingline and less bulbous rear wings with a higher line which were finished with stylish new swage lines. Chassis number BC33CH which we are currently offering for sale is one of just ninety seven cars built to Design No 7400 in right hand drive by H.J.Mulliner between 1955 and 1959. It was originally completed in September of 1957, finished unusually in two tone paint. It was ordered by Mr Vernon Sangster through H.R.Owen in shell grey over circassian blue with a light blue leather interior and then delivered to his home in Cheshire. Being a CH Series car, it also benefits from all of the later upgrades at the factory, including power steering, dual brake reservoirs and the larger carburettors. The car was subsequently owned by Mr K Green of Oxshott in Surrey in the 1980s and 1990s, Mr C Murphy of Norfolk between 2001 and 2003 and Dr R Harely of Worcestershire from 2003. The most recent owner purchased the car, then in Tudor grey and used it for a few years until 2011 when he decided to improve it further, instructing a full coachwork restoration. The coachwork was restored and then re-painted from bare metal to concours standard in shell grey. Since 2011, the car has been driven sparingly, never in the rain and mechanically maintained by Frank Dale & Stepsons each year. Previous servicing records show the car was maintained by the likes of Broughtons of Cheltenham and also P&A Wood. Approximately five years after the completion of the coachwork restoration, the car still looks absolutely magnificent. It comes complete with copy chassis cards, maintenance records, handbook and tools. This ever popular model continues to find favour with collectors and enthusiasts all over the world and BC33CH is an example we are very proud to offer for sale.
