Coupe
Coachwork: Mulliner
Chassis #: BC60LCZ
Engine #: C59BC
The Bentley S2 was introduced in 1959. It was an ultra-exclusive, high-performance model with H.J. Mulliner being the coachbuilder of choice for the sporting S2 Continental.

Bentley would build 388 examples of the S2 Continental with fewer than 100 examples supplied with H.J. Mulliner's two-door design.

This particular example is one of just 27 Continentals built to design number 7514 in left-hand drive by H.J. Mulliner. The body was formed completely from aluminum at the coachbuilder's West London works. The first owner was Henry T. Mudd of Los Angeles. It was finished in Tudor Grey with scarlet Connolly hides, cardinal red carpets and gray headliner. It was given many unusual features, such as electric windows; custom-tailored, lightweight front seats; Richmond-type lap belts; Sundym glass; special Tudor, type-two sun visors, brighter-than-standard instrument lighting; and a radio.

Upon completion, the car was set to the Official Rolls-Royce and Bentley dealer Peter Satori in Pasadena, California, and delivered to Mr. Mudd on November 6th of 1961.

Mr. Mudd retained the car until the fall of 1968, when it was sold to its second owner, James C. Armstrong of Midland, Texas. By this time, the car had been refinished in Sand and had accumulated just over 40,000 miles. The third owner, David Horne of Beverly Hills, California, acquired it in July of 1985. It would remain with Mr. Horne for the next twenty-five years.

The car is currently in the care of its fourth owner.
