Continental Flying Spur Saloon
Coachwork: Mulliner
The current owner has paperwork that indicates this vehicle was ordered and purchased by Herbert L. Shuttleworth II, third generation of Mohawk Carpet Mills. The chassis delivery date was October 9, 1959 and the car delivery date was August 31, 1960.

The S-2 in the Continental form was the highest specification of the line-up. It has upgraded brakes and a higher rear axle ratio to cope with high speed cruising on the modern motorways. The continentals were more comfortable, quieter, and faster than the standard production cars, making them more desirable and sought after.

This example is one of only 55 left-hand drive vehicles built to H.J. Mulliner Style 7508.
