1956 Bent­ley S1 Con­ti­nen­tal

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Auction News -

Re­cent in­ter­est in the R-type Con­ti­nen­tal has pushed val­ues up­wards and for those look­ing for a more af­ford­able, first-rate ap­prox­i­ma­tion, the S1 Con­ti­nen­tal suc­ces­sor is ideal. The his­tory of this ex­am­ple ex­tends back to its first owner. Bought by ac­tor Patrick Allen in 1966 it had a colour change to dark blue but is thought to have its orig­i­nal in­te­rior. Work since in­cludes re­fur­bished ve­neers, while the front sus­pen­sion was over­hauled and a new ex­haust sys­tem fit­ted.
