Use of the term continental to indicate a high performance version of an existing chassis was an inspiration of Sir Henry Royce and was applied to the short chassis version of the Phantom II in 1930. Bentley decided to offer a Continental version of the S series and H.J. Mulliner, now part of the Rolls-Royce empire, was responsible for these fine-looking, two-door, fastback cars. The addition of 'High Wing' at the rear of the standard continental was a feature on only three left-hand drive examples.

This 1959 Bentley Continental S1 has coachwork designed by H.J. Mulliner and is a High Wing Fastback Coupe. It is the first of only three left-drives built and was delivered to Mr. Paul Roebling of Trenton, NJ. He was a descendent of the legendary Charles Roebling, the engineer who designed and built the Brooklyn Bridge. It is fully optioned with Blaupunkt AM-FM-SW radio, power antenna and windows, Sundym glsas throughout and with full refrigeration (air conditioning), all of which remain.

This Bentley, with chassis number BC38LEL, was delivered to its first owner, Paul Roebling of New Jersey, in 1959. Priced at $35,000 it was fully fitted with every option that Bentley offered at the time, including air conditioning, Sundym glass and electric windows. After several subsequent owners, it was acquired in 2007 by its current Bentley enthusiast. It was given a restoration in the late 2000s.
