This 1963 Bentley S3 Continental Saloon wears is a right-hand-drive chassis wearing coachwork by James Young, body number 5238 to design number CV100. It is one of just 18 Continentals so equipped. It was delivered in November of 1962 to Sir Egbert Cadbury through Jack Barclay's London showroom. In the fall of 1965, J.S. Inskip, Inc. facilitated the acquisition of the car by Herbert Allen of New York. Ownership then passed to Jay Haft of Connecticut who retained it for 45 years. During his ownership, the car was repainted in the current metallic green.

This car was factory equipped with front window lifts, full Continental instrumentation, fawn leather upholstery, and an electric radio.
