Fastback
Designer: Mulliner
Chassis #: BC96LBG
Engine # BC95B
Sold for $781,000 at 2017 RM Auctions : Amelia Island.
This Bentley S1 Continental Fastback Sports Saloon by H.J. Mulliner is one of only 22 left-hand-drive cars that were built to the Mulliner fastback sports saloon design. It is a relatively late-production example that benefits from the upgraded engine with larger valves and a larger carburetor.

This Bentley was delivered on April 18th of 1957, to its original owner William Brewster, of Windsor Locks, Connecticut. Requested features included power steering, a steering column two inches longer than standard, fog lights with white bulbs, both summer and winter thermostats, reclining front seats, and dual horns. Requests were made to supply a Lucas electric rear windshield washer and a Blue Spot radio.

On April 27th of 1957, Mr. Brewster sold the car to its second owner, Gregory B. Smith. Mr. Smith retained the car for over two decades, selling it in October of 1977 to Samuel Ornstein of Edison, New Jersey. Richard Thomas of Parsimony, New Jersey, purchased the S1 Continental in 1993, subsequently passing it to Florida collector, Steven Wolf, from who's its purchase was eventually made by Orin Smith.

The car has been restored to its present Saffron over Sandstone livery during Mr. Ornstein's ownership. The car won Rolls-Royce Owners Club (RROC) National First Prizes in both 1979 and 2000.
