1957 Bentley Continental S1 Vehicle Profile

Sports Coupe
Coachwork: Park Ward & Co.
This Bentley S1 Continental Park War is one of just 33 left drive Park Ward S Continental Sport Coupes built between 1955 and 1959. This is perhaps one of six to wear the latest configuration of the series and was the 1957 Paris Salon Car. It is equipped with power windows, map pockets in the seat backs and a zippered document pouch in the headliner.

The car was originally delivered September 24, 1957, in Marseilles, France, and it spent the next half century in France. It was then acquired by Vantage Motorworks, in December 2007, through a Belgian dealer. The car was in entirely original, although shabby, condition.

A complete restoration, including a bare metal respray, mechanical restoration of the engine, gearbox and braking system was undertaken. Fresh show quality interior hides and veneers, as well as an upgraded cooling system completed the work. The car is considered to be quite elegant as seen in Alpine Grey over Black Garnet with parchment hides.
