Description for Bentley Other 1964

Asking $31. 00. 00 or Best Offer for my very well taken care of Bentley S3 RHD. I am only the 3rd owner and I've owned it since 1991. It was imported by a friend of mine in 1976. Garage stored with all original parts. paint (color is Sable!!). leather seats. headliner. tables. and even 2 of the tires are original from 1964!!! Engine runs very well and everything works. Can be great daily driver for an appreciative person. MUST SALE quickly. Please call me is you are a serious cash buyer only. -I would prefer to sale to a private party who will love this very rare. hand-made Bentley as I did. Will consider any reasonable offer. For those who are unfamiliar. the Bentley S3 and the Silver Cloud III were absolutely identical with both vehicles hand built at the Rolls Royce factory in Crewe. England with the only differences being their nameplates. radiator and mascots. In the 1970's a few Bentley S3's were imported from England to the U. S. and converted with the Silver Cloud III radiator. mascot and nameplates as the Bentley was not as appreciated or as coveted as it's identical cousin the Rolls Royce. making these original Bentley's all the more rare and desirable than their cousins! This particular example was originally sold by 'H. R. Owen LTD. of London England in 1964. one of the oldest family owned motor car dealers in the UK and established in 1932 and the car was imported to the U. S. in the seventies and maintained over the years as necessary and with precise attention to detail; including maintaining the original Beige color 'Connolly' leather front hides whilst leaving the virtually unblemished rear hides as is with a beautiful original patina and with the rest of the interior including the carpets. wool headliner. door panels. window posts and kick panels. chrome. paint. the African burled walnut wood. seals. rubbers etc all virtually original and still as new! With decades of pride of ownership and professional specialist maintenance. this cherished and obviously always garaged car has no history of any accidents. The original floor boards. trunk and all the typical rust-prone areas completely solid! The beautiful and highly desirable color of the cars original 'Sable' exterior paint complete with hand painted pin stripes is absolutely stunning and still quite pristine. The car's full 'Connolly' light beige leather interior. which was exclusively used in Rolls Royce and Bentley's and came from unfenced cows which produced unblemished hides. has been well maintained with distinguished signs of light wear and all the chrome work. including the front Bentley grille and the front and rear bumpers. is absolutely outstanding. The car has it's original spare wheel and original jack and tools still located in their rightful place of storage in the trunk compartment. An obviously always garaged example and owned by obviously only very careful and meticulous owner's driver's for over fifty years - never abused! The car drives exactly like a well maintained and serviced Rolls Royce or Bentley should and must be driven to be fully appreciated and seen to be believed! The original V8 engine is extremely strong and the engine temperature always remains cool. The car drives straight as an arrow with no strange road wobbles. shakes or rattles and is a truly remarkable and responsive daily driver! The car still boasts its original radio. power steering. power windows. power brakes. adjustable ride control. Lucas fog lights. electric window defogger. twin picnic tables. lambs wool carpeting and mohair headliner and electric clock. Turn-key ready. as already stated. this particular model truly must be driven and seen to be fully appreciated. You will surely look long and hard to find a finer example of this undocumented but seemingly original low-mile 1964 Bentley S3. which looks virtually identical to its twin Rolls Royce Silver Cloud III apart from grilles and hubcaps. with no signs of any accident history and still boasting its original 'Marston Excelsior' of Leeds. radiator in the front of the engine under the hood. Marston Excelsior originally made metal fuel tanks for Wellington bombers and other aircraft and were commissioned by Bentley to install their radiators in the early sixties! For those who are unfamiliar. Rolls Royce no longer exists as it had for over one hundred years - this is one of the last in the original line of cars built in the legendary Rolls Royce factory in Crewe. England with a quality and craftsmanship that far surpasses that of today's mass produced models with many BMW parts - this is a rare opportunity to own a piece of automobile history. from a time when Rolls Royce and Bentley were truly building the world's finest motor cars. This increasingly desirable and now most collectible of the last and final third series of this legendary marque. the Bentley S3. boasts the all aluminum powerful 6. 2L V8 engine and the redesigned front-end lower hood and radiator with quad front headlamps mounted in oval nacelles - considered a shocking violation of RR tradition at the time with one magazine went so far as to refer to the quad lights as the equivalent to installing a jukebox in Winchester cathedral! Along with it's tall grille and Bentley 'Flying B' hood ornament mascot on the hood. the S3 is a moving work of art from a time when Rolls-Royce and Bentley were famously building the "Best Cars in the World" with the craftsmanship and quality of these cars obviously speaking for themselves. It is becoming increasingly hard to find such unabused examples as these models become thinner and thinner on the ground and harder to find as time has its way with them and with only some 1. 86 Bentley S3 models built between it's 1962-65 production years and with this being the first model in which Rolls Royce production exceeded Bentley's. it should ensure even greater rarity for this particularly rare Bentley S3 example. especially considering how numerous numbers of these rare Bentley's were tragically and unceremoniously 'butchered' (converted) into Rolls Royces by replacing their beautiful grilles and hubcaps and mascots! With all models now very thin on the ground you will surely look long and hard to find another such example in such fine condition with low original miles and with its original owners manual. tools and spare! So bid with confidence. with Silver Cloud III and S3 convertibles now regularly selling in excess of $250K. this will no doubt prove a fabulous investment for the astute investor. Bentley or Rolls Royce enthusiast or collector or simply a great daily driver or weekend toy for the discerning luxury classic car owner!
