1957 Bentley S1 Continental Fastback by H.J. MullinerChassis number: BC55BGRegistration Number: ULP739This 'modern magic carpet' was sold new to one R Hambro, very possibly a member of the eponymous banking dynasty. The car was originally registered as 'ULP 739'; the registration number it wears today.The previous owner to current acquired the Continental in July 1982 and was its custodian for no less then 36 years. There are receipts on file totalling £65,000 for work carried out since 1988, much of it by Bentley specialist William Medcalf of Liss, West Sussex. Significant works carried out over the course of the last 30 years include a repaint in silver in 1998; woodwork and brightwork refurbished in 2001; interior re-trimmed in pale blue leather with headlining and boot lining renewed in 2007; automatic gearbox overhauled in 2015; hubcaps re-chromed in 2017; and the distributor converted to electronic ignition that same year.In recent years 'ULP 739' has successfully undertaken tours of the UK, Ireland, and the South of France, and has attended Wimbledon complete with picnic. The Continental performes faultlessly: the engine starts promptly and run very quietly and smoothly, while the transmission works correctly and sweetly. Indeed I have to say that this is one of the best driving S1 Fastbacks I have experienced which is high praise indeed as I have driven so many. The massive bill file is reassuring in that every thing needing doing has been done.The height of sporting luxury in its day, this Beautiful S-Type Continental is comes with a comprehensive history file containing numerous bills for servicing and maintenance; a quantity of expired MoTs, tax discs, and insurance valuations; a V5C Registration Certificate; and MoT to February 2022. It is in impeccable order & is only being sold to make room for an R Type Fastback that has just joined the stable alongside the august company of several Pre war Rolls Royce Silver Ghosts.
