1959 Bentley S1 Continental Flying Spur


car description

Chassis number: BC17FM Registration number:488UYG A very rare late model S1 flying spur by H.J. Mulliner of Chiswick. Unusually the car was specified from new with twin Marechal headlamps in the manner of later S3 cars; this is documented in the build sheets as is the passenger head rest detailed in original Mulliner drawings that come with the car. The car has resided for many years in a small collection in Denmark where it has seen regular but sparing summer only use. We picked the car up in Copenhagen & drove it back to the UK . On the journey the odometer passed 100,000 miles for the first time. The car drove flawlessly running effortlessly at speed & giving first hand meaning to the Continental Moniker. The car simply devoured the miles in front of it & is well suited to long continental journeys which it handles with aplomb. The car is finished in a deep metallic blue that suits the car beautifully. The paint is in good overall order having had a recent respray to the wings & doors. To the interior is deep burgundy leather complimented by similar carpets. The leather to the seats is more recent & consequently in superb order. The original door card leather is excellent & plea
