Sports Coupe
Coachwork: Park Ward & Co.
This car was delivered new Harrison Eiteljorg on September 6, 1957. There were only 431 S1 Continental Park Wards built and only 31 were left-hand drives. Bentley claimed the Continental as 'the fastest four-seater in the world' with a top speed of 120 mph. It has an aluminum body and was built by coachbuilder Park Ward. Under the hood is an Fhead 4887 cc straight six Crewe engine with cast-iron cylinder block and aluminum alloy cylinder heads. A dual SU carburetor type HD6 was used from 1955 through 1957. A four speed automatic gearbox was standard; however, a four-speed manual unit was available as optional equipment. The vehicles were adorned in two-tone paintwork with the hood finished in the lower color.

This car is currently in the care of the son of the original owner.
