Unlike the Bentley R-Type and the Rolls-Royce Silver Dawn, there was no 'standard' R-Type Continental. Within the production run of 2,320 R-Types, just 208 were R-Type Continentals.

This Continental is one of only 41 left-hand-drive examples built by H.J. Mulliner to its design number 7277. The car was shipped to the United States and appeared at the New York Auto Show in February 1954. After the show, the car was sold to Standard Oil Company heir William Brewster of Connecticut. Three years later, the car was bought by Rolls-Royce Owners Club member and collector George E. Felton of Massachusetts, who enjoyed the car for 20 more years. Several more RROC members owned the car until it was purchased by its current owner, who recently commissioned a complete restoration for its debut at the 2019 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance.
