Drop Head Coupe
Coachwork: Park Ward & Co.
Chassis #: BC25LDJ
The Bentley S1 followed the R-Type in late 1955 and was one of the era's most stylish motor cars. The Park Ward Drophead Coupe on this S1 is the work of legendary coachwork designer John Blatchley, famous for the Mulliner-bodied R-Type Continental. It is one of 31 left-hand drive aluminum-bodied drophead coupes by Park Ward, and it was ordered for H.R.H. the Crown Prince Abdullah of Iraq. Unfortunately the prince didn't get to enjoy his new car as, soon after its delivery, he lost his life in the military coup of 1958. The car was acquired by Mr. Janabi, a Baghdad businessman, in 1968. The car attracted the attention of Saddam Hussein when it appeared in the 1990s film King Ghazi of Iraq, and after Janabi repeatedly refused to sell the car to him, it was forcefully 'requisitioned.' In 2006, after the fall of Saddam's regime, the car was found in his underground garage in Baghdad, having been neglected and badly vandalized. The car has now been restored to its former glory.

It was later resold in Canada where it was acquired by the current owner.

The car is powered by a 4887 cc in-line 6-cylinder engine and the power was listed as 'adequate'. It has a top speed of 120 mph.
