1956 Bentley S1 Saloon
This is the ultimate in style and luxury finished in a very elegant Dark green with original tan leather with great patina and a couple of tears, and good wood throughout. Powered by a strong six cylinder F-engine with 4887 cc. with an automatic gearbox. After market air conditioning has been fitted and works surprisingly well! Being first year of production this car was delivered with no power windows (which by this age are a little fragile anyway) and also came with no power steering which can be an issue parking if you are a little fragile! The paint is excellent with the exeption of a couple of marks and was redone 2 years ago along with the chrome at a cost of many thousands. Original tool kit and jack etc in perfect uncorroded condition. This is a US delivered left hand drive, rust free, accident free car. There can't be any better original S1's out there.

From WikipediaThe Bentley S was a luxury car produced by Bentley Motors Limited from 1955 until 1959. Bentley (and Rolls-Royce)'s first true complete redesign of their standard production car after World War II and their last standard production car with an independent chassis. These cars were given a new V8 engine in late 1959, and those cars are identified as S2. Twin headlamps and a facelift to the front arrived in late 1962, and those cars are known as S3.
