Drop Head Coupe
Coachwork: Park Ward & Co.
This S-Continental Park Ward Convertible is one of the 31 left drive, alloy-bodied dropheads built between 1956 and 1959. This late example is equipped with the upgraded large valve, large carburetor engine, original equipment power steering, power-operated convertible top and air-conditioning authentic for the period. It is also one of three originally supplied with power-operated windows.

It was acquired by the restorer in entirely original unrestored and undamaged order from the original owner, the wife of a principal of the Dreyfus Fund. As promised to her, it was restored to show quality, finished in sand/sable with beige top and hides.

Complete tools, owner's handbooks, and copies of the manufacturer's records are included.
