Up until 1957 Bentley had only offered two door Continental style bodies, so to meet the demand of requests from their customers for a more practical four door variant with greater luggage capacity the Flying Spur was born. H.J. Mulliners chief designer George Moseley was entrusted with styling the new four door motor car and his design was so well received that it lasted the entire production of Continental S Type Bentleys until 1966, also becoming one of the coachbuilt options available on the Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud III chassis. A total of just sixteen cars were built in left hand drive by H.J.Mulliner on the S1 Continental chassis to Design No 7443 and this particular car Chassis No BC4LCH was the very first example produced. It was ordered new through the Rolls-Royce agent in New York J.S.Inskip and delivered to its first owner Mr Angus Ray Gross in October 1957 to his home in Baltimore. Mr Gross retained the car until June of 1979 when he sold it to Mr James O Cason of New York. Mr Gross retained the car until 2005 when it was shipped to Europe to be restored, a process that took four years. It has recently benefitted from preparation in our London workshops with expenditure in excess of £30,000. This beautiful Bentley Continental is stylishly finished in shell grey over garnet and comes prepared and ready for its fourth owner.
