1962 saw the introduction of the S3 variant of the factory bodied standard steel saloon and at first glance it would appear that the all new S3 was merely an S2 with different headlamps. The introduction of the twin headlamps was clearly the most obvious change, but the differences did not end there. Further changes included the introduction of smaller bumper over riders and the repositioning of the front indicators and side lamps into one single unit on the front wing, resulting in an arguably more attractive appearance. Mechanically speaking the S3 was issued with larger 9:1 compression ratio carburettors, improved power steering to aid smoother movement at parking speed and a Lucas vacuum-advance distributor to aid fuel consumption making it almost identical in mechanical specification to the S3 Continental that was being produced at the same time. This particular example, Chassis No B480CN, was completed in May of 1963, finished in masons black with a beige leather interior. It was ordered byMr J Brazil of Amersham in Buckinghamshire and supplied by Jack Barclay Ltd. It was ordered with electric windows and an auxiliary fuel tank for long distance journeys. Mr Brazil used the car extensively during his seven year ownership period, driving 70,000 miles. The car was then sold via Jack Barclay in 1970 to its second owner, Mr C Price of Ludlow in Shropshire. The car passed to his son in 1974 who owned it until 1987 at which point the mileage was 80,000 miles. The third owners were Mr and Mrs Cornish of Wanstead in London who set about some cosmetic improvements upon purchase, all listed in the cars history file. The car was owned by Mr St John Miller from 1998 to 2000 who sold it to Mr G Purdie. During Mr Purdies ownership, the car received substantial improvements, including a full coachwork restoration, mechanical works and new carpets to compliment the original leather interior which the car still retains today. To date, the car has travelled 97,000 miles from new. It is complete withan extensive history file, small and large tools and handbook. This fine example is serviced, prepared and ready for its fortunate next owner.

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. One hundred and nineteen bodies were built by H.J.Mulliner between 1955 and 1957 to Design No 7400, which was then followed by Design No 7466, a modified Fastback design which is sometime referred to as the high line option. It was sparingly produced with just sixteen cars produced in right handdrive to this design by H.J.Mulliner, with a further four cars built in left hand drive. Design No 7466 differentiated itself from Design No 7400 with re-positioned front side lights, which were relocated on top of the wings, lipped wheel arches and a repositioned fuel filler cap. The finished result was yet another triumph for the H.J.Mulliner design team. This particular car, Chassis No BC41DJ is one of the sixteen cars built in right hand drive. It was completed in January 1958, originally finished in black with a beige leather interior. It was supplied by Grosvenor Motors Ltd of Johannesburg South Africa to its first owner, Mr R.E. Hunt of Johannesburg. It was shipped on the Pretoria Castle from Southampton to Johannesburg via the port of Durban. It is understood that the car was a gift for Mr Hunts wife. Just a few years later, the car is understood to have returned to London where it was owned by a Mr Herzov in west London from 1965. Chassis No BC41DJ then found its way to the United Statesin the 1980s where it was owned by Mr David Kent who lived in both California and Oregon where he is understood to have used the car. In 1988 Mr Kent relocated to London and brought BC41DJ with him, taking residence in Cadogan Square in London. Since then the car lived in the London area, maintained by noted Bentley specialists Hillier Hill. It is complete with all of its small and large tools, plus its handbook. Opportunities to purchase a 7466 S1 Continental Fastback are few and far between and we are delighted to be able to offer this rare and handsome car for sale at this time.

The decision was taken in 1950 to develop a Bentley motor car capable of producing high maximum speeds ideal for Continental touring on the long straight roads of Europe. The higher speeds were to be coupled with correspondingly high rates of acceleration and excellent handling. In order to achieve these lofty ambitions a tremendous amount of research and testing were conducted using quarter scale models in the Hucknall wind tunnel. Extensive testing and alterations allowed Ivan Evernden and John Blatchley of the Motor Car Division to design a body not only of exceptional style, but also of an aerodynamic shape that reduced drag and achieved excellent levels of stability even at speeds in excess of 100mph. By late summer of 1951 the drawings and scale models became reality with the creation of the prototype R Type Continental which in time became known as OLGA. Every weight saving opportunity was taken in the production of OLGA, with the majority of the car being crafted from lightweight aluminium.This included the body, window frames, bumpers and even the seat frames. In September of 1951 testing began in France under the supervision of Walter Sleator who was the managing director of Garage Franco-Britannique, the Rolls-Royce agent in Paris. Sleator was well qualified for such a task being an ex-racing driver. Following extensive testing and refinements production began in early 1952. The R Type Continental was at the time the fastest production four seater car in the world, capable of speeds of well in excess of 100mph. The Continental chassis shared many similarities with the Mk VI and R Type chassis, sharing suspension, steering and brake components. However the combination of the fitment of a high ratio back axle, the lightweight construction and the smaller sleeker body style resulted in performance that was far and beyond superior to any car Bentley had previously produced in the post war era. The chassis were assembled in Crewe with the vast majority of the 208 built then transportedto London by train where they were fitted with coachwork by H.J. Mulliner of Chiswick, with all but fifteen cars fitted with their fastback bodies. The A, B and C series cars were fitted with 4.5 litre engines that displaced 4,566cc and produced 158bhp. Chassis No BC3C which we are currently offering for sale was originally completed in August of 1953, finished in black with a beige leather interior. It was also ordered with six fitted suitcases, a removable centre arm rest in the front of the cabin and a compass on the nearside of the dashboard. It was supplied by H.A.Fox & Co to its first owner, Mr H.C.Coriat of England in September of 1953. Mr Coriat retained the car for a little over a year and sold it in December of 1954 to Mr Guy Moreton. It was then owned by Mr R.H.Baker from 1960 until 1975 when it was purchased by Mr Leon Shapiro of the United States. It was acquired by Mr John Harwood in January of 1976 who kept the car in New York until around 1985 when he relocated to London, bringingBC3C with him. Once back in London, Mr Harwood decided to restore BC3C to its former glory. The body was removed and the works commenced, but for reasons unknown the car was not completed and it subsequently was put into storage where it remained for many years. In around 2010 the car was sold in a partially finished state at auction following Mr Harwoods passing. At this point the restoration recommenced with coachwork, mechanical, trim, chrome and woodwork restoration. In more recent times the engine was overhauled and prior to being offered for sale Frank Dale & Stepsons have prepared the car to showroom condition. It comes mechanically prepared and tested and is complete with copy chassis cards and historical documentation. This handsome R Type Continental is perhaps the most sought after specification in its original colour scheme, with rear wheel spats, air conditioning mounted on the parcel shelf, manual transmission and bucket seats and should be seriously considered by anyone looking toacquire a superb example of this iconic Bentley Continental.

1959 was an important year in the history of Rolls-Royce and Bentley when looking at the mechanical development of the companies. The series one engine had effectively run its course by this point and could not be developed any further. The approximate 160bhp output was more than sufficient but due to pressures and competition elsewhere Rolls-Royce sought out an improved power unit to deliver more speed whilst retaining the refined performance. The answer was a complete move away from the six cylinder inline engine configuration to an all new V8 unit boasting 6,230cc and an estimated 200bhp. The new V8 engine was constructed almost entirely in aluminium and was of a very similar weight to its predecessor, but featured hydraulic tappets to ensure quiet running. A few other mechanical aspects were modified including the braking and lubrication systems, with automatic transmission and power steering now standard fittings. The new second generation Silver Cloud and S series cars were capable of speedscomfortably in excess of 100mph whilst retaining the feel and performance Rolls-Royce and Bentley owners had become accustomed to. Coachbuilders H.J. Mulliner had enjoyed significant success during the 1950s with their iconic R Type Continental Fastback and subsequent S1 Continental Fastback designs. As the launch of the all new Bentley S2 Continental chassis and engine drew closer the design team at H.J. Mulliner also looked to the future and began to make some small amendments to their S1 Continentals Fastback design by re-positioning of the front spot lights on to the top of the wing line. They also listened to their customers requests for a new two door design which allowed greater luggage capacity in the boot. The result was design number 7500, built in very limited numbers which was fitted with a wraparound rear screen and fins on the front and rear wings. Design number 7500 was arguably improved further for the S2 Continental chassis with the removal of the fins to allow a more gracefulline. The result was design number 7514, considered by many including ourselves to be the most attractive of all coachwork designs fitted to the S2 Continental chassis between 1959 and 1962. Chassis No BC51AR is one of just 71 examples built to design number 7514 in right hand drive by H.J. Mulliner. The coachwork was constructed entirely of aluminium at their west London works, completed to order for each individual customer in the bespoke fashion that Bentley owners were accustomed to. The car was originally completed in April of 1960, finished in velvet green with beige leather as it still is today. It was supplied by Jack Barclay Ltd to its first owner, Mr Ivan Couper Sanderson of west London. Later in life between 1989 and 1992 Chassis No BC51AR benefited from a three year, body off, ground up restoration by Broughtons. The work was completed to the highest standards and some twenty five years on from the completion of the works, the car is still in excellent condition in every respect. Aphotographic record of the works is complete with the car, as are the service and maintenance records. Chassis No BC51AR was first acquired by Frank Dale & Stepsons approximately five years ago when supplied by us to a noted Bentley enthusiast who has enjoyed the car on numerous rallies and events across Europe ever since. It has been serviced and maintained during this period in our workshops, regardless of cost. This beautiful example is fitted with air conditioning on the rear parcel shelf and is complete with copy chassis cards, handbook and history file. In our opinion it should be driven and seen in person to be truly appreciated.

During the late 1920s and early 1930s Bentley ran into grave financial trouble and by 1931 Rolls-Royce had stepped in and bought the assets and goodwill of the defunct company and formed a new one, Bentley Motors (1931) Ltd. Rolls-Royce had considered the Bentley marque to be a growing threat to their future success, but following their purchase decided to continue the Bentley name, albeit under their own stewardship, taking the company in an entirely new direction with the creation of the Silent Sports Car or Derby Bentley. In 1933 the new Bentley 3.5 Litre model was released and was an instant success. The combination of effortless power and style met with almost universal praise. It was powered by a developed twin carburettor version of Rolls-Royces own 20/25 model and was installed in a low 126 inch wheelbase chassis that basically remained unaltered until the cessation of production in 1939 due to the outbreak of hostilities. Synchromesh was present on third and fourth gears and the Derbyswere fitted with a cross flow cylinder head and superb servo assisted brakes, encapsulating all of the perfection of Rolls-Royce engineering in this small sporting Bentley. Fitting of individual coachwork by approved body builders continued in true Rolls-Royce fashion giving potential buyers a great deal of choice in the look of their new motor car. 1936 saw further improvements with the introduction of the 4.25 Litre model when production of the 3.5 Litre unit ceased. One of the first 4.25 Litre examples built was Chassis No B198GA, completed in June of 1936, just three months into production of the new model. It began life with a Park Ward saloon style body as so many Derby Bentleys did, but was re-bodied into its current configuration some decades ago, with an original open tourer body by Corsica. Based in Corsica Street, Islington, London, Corsica were better known for coachwork on vintage Bentleys and Bugattis, producing only three open tourer bodies for Derby chassis. One body was fitted fromnew, to Chassis No B79JY and two further cars were re-bodied in this style, those being B116DG and also B198GA, the car we are currently offering for sale. The three Corsica bodies were built in a style very reminiscent of the Vanden Plas (Malcolm Campbell) style tourer, with cut away doors and flowing lines. Chassis No B198GA has been supplied by Frank Dale & Stepsons on more than one occasion in the past, in 1985 when supplied to a long standing customer who kept and enjoyed the car until 2011. At this point the car was supplied again by Frank Dale & Stepsons and following purchase, the new owner instructed some cosmetic restoration work, which included all of the chrome being restored, the coachwork restored and re-painted in dawn blue, a new hood in dark blue and some interior improvements to complement the mechanical preparation works we carried out. The car was then driven to southern Italy where it has been enjoyed in more recent times. We are delighted to have this motor car back for saleagain in 2017. It drives superbly and being so light is very sporty when considering its performance on the road. It is also complete with its original handbook and a selection of tools. Being one of just three bodies produced by Corsica, Chassis No B198GA may represent an opportunity not soon to be repeated.

The Rolls-Royce 20HP was produced from 1922 until 1929, concurrent with the companys larger models, the 20HP being very much a luxury car in miniature. The Twenty was offered only with one chassis length of 129 inches with a number of coachbuilders fitting bodies that epitomised the grandeur and luxury of Edwardian times. Chassis No GPK40 was originally commissioned by the proprietor of Harrisons coachbuilders and was completed to his order in December of 1925. The GPK series was the first to benefit from receiving four wheel brakes and a four speed gearbox, noted improvements on the original design. Following Harrisons ownership GPK40 was then later owned by Admiral Tovey, the Commander of the Mediterranean fleet during WWII. Chassis No GPK40 changed hands in the 1970s where it remained part of a family collection until 2014 when it was supplied by Frank Dale & Stepsons for the first time. When acquired in the 1970s the car was finished in pale blue with black wings but was extensively restored inthe early 1990;s where it received a colour change to its present configuration. The history folder is extensive, with details relating to the restoration and subsequent maintenance of the car. The car was also upgraded with overdrive, making it more enjoyable to use on the numerous rallies and events it attended and took part in. During the most recent period of ownership, further improvements have been made, with new tyres and re-built shock absorbers. It is complete with large and small tools and an extensive history file. In our opinion this Twenty is a charming example that drives beautifully. The option of the fully opening Tickford roof adds another dimension to this beautiful motor car, one that will certainly provide the next fortunate owner with a great deal of motoring pleasure.

Chassis No FA2505 was completed in January of 1929, originally fitted with Weymann Saloon coachwork by Gurney Nutting. It was originally owned by C.A. Aldous until 1937 when it was sold and exported to South Africa. Whilst there, the chassis was modified from a twelve feet six inch wheelbase to one of eleven feet two inches and the coachwork was changed to a Vanden Plas style open tourer, the coachwork it still retains today. Following these changes the car was shipped to the USA where it remained until 1973. It was repatriated to the UK by Dr Paul Hummel and extensively used until 1979 when it was purchased by Stanley Mann. It was retained by Mr Mann for personal use for a short while and then sold to Mr L Davey who sent the car to W.O. Bentley specialists R.C.Moss who restored the car for the new owner between 1979 and 1981. The car was shown in 1981 at the BDC Concours at Kensington Gardens where it won best car in show. Mr Davey retained the car until 1996 when he sold it to Mr P Cautley whosubsequently toured the car in Canada, the USA, Spain and Portugal following more restoration works by R.C.Moss between 1997 and 1999. It was acquired by the present owner in 2003. During the most recent ownership the engine was overhauled in 2005 and has since covered approximately 20,000 miles on trips all across Europe. Other works undertaken in recent years include the fitting of an overdrive and self-wrapping brakes, a new radiator, restored wheels, coachwork restoration, a new hood as well as annual maintenance to ensure correct performance and reliability. Chassis No FA2505 retains its original engine (FA2511) and original number plate (UL4049) and major mechanical components such as the axles and (C Type) gearbox. It is complete with FIVA identity card and extensive history dating back to the late 1970s, covering all of the restoration works then and since. This matching numbers 6 ½ Litre is truly magnificent machine in every respect and should be seen in person and driven to be trulyappreciated.

The tremendous success Bentley enjoyed with the R Type Continental continued onto the S Series chassis in late 1955 with a range of new bodies available to collectors. The Park Ward fixed head coupe and drophead coupe designs on the R Type Continental chassis were originally the brain child of legendary coachwork designer John Blatchley who had been involved in the styling of the R Type Continental by H.J. Mulliner. Six R Type Continental chassis were delivered to the Park Ward works, which were then owned by Rolls-Royce. Blatchley was given the task of styling the four drophead coupes and the two further fixed head coupes on the R Type Continental chassis, designs which were later slightly adapted for the marginally longer S1 Continental chassis. Chassis No BC10AF was originally completed in October of 1955 as a fixed head coupe, finished in silver with a grey leather interior. It was supplied by Wadham Bros Ltd in Southampton to its first owner Mr W.F.Lutyens of Petersfield. It then changed handsin 1958 when sold to a collector in Cardiff, before being sold again in 1964 to Mr M J Batt of Wimbledon. Frank Dale & Stepsons supplied BC10AF in 2000 when sold to a customer in Italy who used the car extensively across Europe. It was then supplied again by us in 2014 to a long standing customer in London. He then decided to instruct us to covert the car into a drophead coupe, built to the same specification as an original car by Park Ward. An original car was used as the blue print and set side by side to BC10AF for several weeks in order to make sure every detail was exactly the same. The underside of the car was also strengthened as per the specification of an original drophead coupe. Whilst the coachwork was changed and extensively restored, the engine was removed, upgraded to the later S1 Continental specification and overhauled. The new hood frame was constructed to match an original drophead coupe by Park Ward in terms of shape and function and fitted to the car. Once adjusted and fettled,the car was re-painted from bare metal in silver over black. The engine bay cosmetics were all restored as was the chassis and underside of the car. The chrome was re-plated and upon its return to our workshop, all other mechanical aspects were reviewed and overhauled as and where necessary. A new hood in black mohair was trimmed, as were new carpets in red to complement the existing leather which was retained. The rear seat had to be modified to fit the new style of interior, but the original leather was carefully saved and re-used to ensure the look the owner wanted. The interior woodwork was restored as was the whole dashboard area, including the steering column, steering wheel and gauges. The lighting was also upgraded, with LED bulbs added to the dashboard gauges. Power steering was added to enhance the cars manoeuvrability at parking speed and the engine was reunited with the car and run in over about 1,000 miles to complete the works. Invoices and photographs documenting the entire processare available in the cars history file. The finished product drives exactly as one would expect a fully restored S1 Continental to and the appearance of the car is not only first class cosmetically, but also indistinguishable from an original drophead coupe by Park Ward. The process to convert and restore BC10AF to its current condition and configuration was exhaustive, but the result speaks for itself and this is a car we are now delighted to be able to offer for sale (Please note the current registration number is not included)

Chassis No BC4XD which we are currently offering for sale is one of just seventeen cars produced in right hand drive to Design No CV100 by James Young on the S3 Continental chassis. It was produced as direct competitor to the H.J.Mulliner styled Flying Spur and was a great success, with its flowing lines and stylish appearance. This particular car was completed in March 1965 to the order of Mr J Edwards of Farnham Common in Buckinghamshire, finished in James Young grey with a grey leather interior and supplied by Jack Barclay Ltd. It was also specified to be fitted with air conditioning and power windows. The car changed hands in June of 1966 when sold to Mr J Priestly of London and then again in February of 1968 when it was sold to Whipples Ltd in Lincolnshire. The car was then exported to the US but returned to the UK we believe in the 1980s, repatriated by A.B Price. It was sold in 1990 to Mr J Myers who instructed the restoration to the coachwork, woodwork and various mechanical aspects. Thecar was then supplied in April 1994 to Mr Haynes who owned it for twenty years from this point. During the early years of Mr Haynes ownership, the engine was overhauled and has covered approximately 16,000 miles since. For the ensuing time, Mr Haynes had the car serviced and reviewed on an annual basis, maintaining BC4XD on a no expense spared basis. The car is complete with extensive documentation from the cars inception and build at James Young and a great deal of paperwork from 1990 to present day showing the restoration works and servicing invoices from Bentley specialists. It retains its original leather interior and complete tools. Chassis No BC4XD is a fine example of this rare and stylish design by James Young which is ready for touring.
