vehicle description1960 BENTLEY S2 CONTINENTAL H.J. MULLINER STYLE 7508 FLYING SPUR #BC66LAR 97,387 MILES
One of only 49 left drive examples built from 1960-1962, this aluminum bodied example of the coachbuilders art was first delivered to Dr. George Westgate on 26, May 1960, finished in a very elegant color layout of Medium Grey with matching Blue Grey hides as it appears today. Dr. Westgate was also the owner of a very elegant Style 7484 H.J. Mulliner Convertible finished to match.
During the late 1980s after capturing the 1987 RROC National Award corresponding to the plaque still on the dashboard, it found its way to the stable of the highly respected UK sales & restoration facility of P.J. Fischer who evidently carried out a high quality cosmetic & mechanical review before selling it on to a careful individual in Sweden, from whom it was recently acquired. The kilometers per hour speedometer currently in place was required for operation in that country. The odometer reading was 97,353 miles as stated by the seller from whom we received it. The 1989 P.J. Fischer inspection report shows 93,360 miles at that time.
Authentic original air conditioning has recently been installed. Prepared with an eye towards originality of appearance, it has been upgraded using technology unavailable 59 years ago. The resultant efficiency is truly impressive. The original interior wood veneers have also been restored to show quality for the first time in nearly 6 decades.
Correct handbooks & complete tools, the small ones in their special Mulliner box accompany the automobile along with copies of the factory & coachwork records. The original chassis, engine & body have never been separated from each other & there are no collisions or other horror stories in its 59 year history.

UPDATE: Although never fully restored, this automobile was awarded First Place Honors in the Postwar Rolls-Royce & Bentley Class at the recent Boca Raton Concours d'Elegance. The Tiffany glass trophy shown in the photos will accompany the car to its next home.
