BENTLEY CONTINENTAL S3

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

Improvements, as on regular S3s, include greater power assistance to the steering as well as those quad headlamps - 'Chinese Eye' style on the Park Ward drophead and its new two-door saloon derivative. James Young bodied 20 saloons on this chassis; the Mulliner two-door was phased out with the S3's introduction. Some Rolls-Royce variants made.
