Drophead Coupe
Designer: Park Ward
Chassis #: BC91LBG
The Bentley S1 Continental was conceived to be an exclusively coachbuilt car. Accordingly, each of 432 S1 Continentals received coachwork from the few remaining coachbuilders that survived World War II. H.J. Mulliner, Hooper and James Young all built a variety of both open and closed bodies, but this drophead coupe is one of 31 built by Park Ward. Bentley records show that this car was delivered at the end of 1956 to Frederick Brewster of Connecticut. He was connected to the famous coachbuilding firm of Brewster & Co., and the family can trace its roots back to Elder William Brewster, who sailed on the Mayflower in 1620. Frederick's daughters inherited the car in 2012 and commissioned a full and complete restoration from Vantage Motorworks to its original specifications in Shell Grey over Black with Black top and Light Grey hides.
