1957 Bentley S Type Continental Fastback

Story and History

1957 Bentley S Type Continental Fastback by HJ Mulliner

Taken in part exchange the Fastback had been mechanically overhauled by the previous owner

Cosmetically she was acceptable, whilst not up to our normal expectations

So without hesitation we set to and stripped her back down to bare metal

Metallic red was changed to Oxford Blue (with our usual hint of black to darken to colour a smidgen)

For the interior we chose Soft Tan, hand made to our own colour choice and also with the smoothest hides we could find - very expensive but oh so gentle to feel and sit on

The Wilton carpets had over mats to contrast the under carpets - both bound in same soft tan leather

The Webasto sunroof we disposed of, and our team of metal workers profiled a new roof panel in aluminium

We also fabricated a set of rear wheel spats, common on the 'R' Type Continental, but not so on the 'S' Type

One of the most beautiful and graceful Coupe's ever penned, this example seems to be appreciated by everyone who see's her on the street
