1958 Bentley Continental S1 / BC43LCH Chassis Information

Drop Head Coupe
Coachwork: Park Ward & Co.
Chassis Num: BC43LCH
First introduced in 1955, the Bentley S-Type, retrospectively known as the S1, was a much larger car than the Bentley R-Type that it replaced. Differing only in its radiator and badging from the Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud, the S1s power came from an enlarged version of the R-Type's six-cylinder, 4887cc engine. The mildly turned S1 Continental was added six months after the introduction of the new model. The brisker performing Continental was not available with standard coachwork, so these were built by several coachwork companies. Park Ward built this example, one of 31 left-hand drive Drop Head Coupes. This car (BC43LCH) won its class at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance in 1963.

It is a 37,000-mile example, that was delivered to Lucius Beebe and his life-partner, Charles Clegg, on May 28, 1958. The original cost was nearly $35,000. It was acquired by Mark Tuttle; at that time, it had traversed 33,324 miles. Mr. Tuttle took fine care of the car and it was acquired from his estate by the current owner in 2008, showing just 37,633 miles.

The original Rose Beige lacquer has since been stripped and the body freshly refinished in Pewter to compliment the tan hide interior. Correctly ducted air conditioning has been added, and the car is a delight to drive. All of the original books and an extensive history have also survived.
