BENTLEY CONTINENTAL S1

2-door saloon (H.J. Mulliner), 2-door saloon (Park Ward), drophead coupÈ (Park Ward), Flying Spur 4-door saloon.

Not quite as popular as the R Continental, with Park Ward's closed cars usually coming the least expensive. Manual very rare, and not after early 1957. Again, as on regular S1s, go for one with power steering. Dropheads rare and very expensive. Some bodies by James Young (20), and by Hooper (6); mildly uprated engine on all S1 Continentals.
