1956 Bentley S1

Successor to the R-Type, the Bentley S1 was introduced in 1955 with a whole new chassis; the car's wheelbase had been extended 3" to 123", and the luggage compartment was expanded. The S1 had softer suspension than the R-Type, with electrically controlled rear shock absorbers. Brakes had been improved, and the steering was lighter. This model marked the final integration of Bentley with Rolls-Royce - the standard saloons were now entirely alike, but for grilles and badging. The engine was Rolls' 4887cc F-head six, in its final configuration before the introduction of V8 power in 1959. Manual gearboxes were supplied only to special order. The British Magazine, the Motor reported a top speed of 103 mph and 0-60 acceleration of 13.1 seconds from a short-wheelbase S1 in 1957. We are extremely proud to offer this absolutely stunning, nut and bolt restored example of this iconic British luxury saloon. It left the factory May 1956 and was sold to its first owner via the Bristol Motor Company, to a Lt Col Stewart Pitman on 14th June 1956. It has recently been the subject of a bare metal repaint in the its original and very attractive Velvet Green which looks superb and the interior has been lavished with superb new Beige leather upholstery with matching piping, new Thorn Herd cloth head lining and carpets. Its walnut woodwork, all having been beautifully restored, looks sublime as does all of the brightwork, every piece of which has been re-chromed much as one would expect for such a meticulous restoration project. There is a photographic history of its body off restoration showing every step of the work carried out, from the suspension to the engine to all mechanical components which pertain to this graceful Bentley and also to note that the gearbox has been rebuilt as well a top end engine rebuild. Having only had four owners from new and is a matching numbers example, this surely must be one of the most desirable on the market today and is ready for its new custodian.     The health and safety of both our customers and team remains the utmost priority, we are therefore operating to Government guidelines throughout viewing and auction day.
