Seller's Comments.

BENTLEY S2 CONTINENTAL DROPHEAD BY PARK WARD (1961 CHASSIS: BC86BY), FULL BODY OFF FRAME RESTORATION TO THE HIGHEST STANDARD. One of only 63 RIGHT HAND DRIVE BUILT and one of the most important and special coach built motor cars we have ever had the pleasure to offer for WORLDWIDE sale. One of only 125 Park Ward Dropheads produced in total and the first generation to feature the now famous 200HP Rolls-Royce V8 engine. This particular example has lived a most lavished and prominent life. The chassis of BC86BY was delivered to Park Ward on the 16th January 1961, the coachwork was completed some six months later where the Bentley agent, Jack Barclay Ltd, delivered it to Mr. J. Eisinger of 34 Belgrave Square, Belgravia, London SW1 (The former East German Embassy). The original garaged address, for those who do not know, is in the most famous and historic square in Belgravia and has been home to Royalty and foreign dignitaries for centuries a fitting place for what was the most expensive and exotic car available at the time. Originally specified to be finished in Sand with Beige trim, it appears that this was changed some prior to the car going to Park Ward for its coachwork. Finished today in Dark Blue Metallic with Beige upholstery, Beige carpets and Beige Everflex power folding roof and discreetly fitted under dash air-conditioning, the condition is absolutely pristine, exceptional concours standard. Having benefited from HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS of dollars of restoration and maintenance over the last 20 years, BC86BY can only be described as one of the most exceptional examples on offer anywhere in the world today. Exceptionally and authentically restored body off frame from the ground up by Roger Fry (the world leading Silver Ghost specialist) in the late 1990s, restored and maintained by Paradise Garage in the 2000s and further improved in the last few years to be exhibited at Motorclassica, where it was met with enormous fanfare and praise. A very well-known car, BC86BY was owned by a highly experienced and astute exotic and classic car collector who understood and benefited from the investment potential of this extremely rare coach built car. Accompanying BC86BY are an extensive list of service and restoration receipts, original chassis cards, correct owners handbook, complete tool kit and memorabilia from its entry into Motorclassica. We acquired the car as the previous owner is restructuring his extensive car collection. Rapidly increasing in value and with international demand extremely high, this outstanding example will not last long. Buy now as the only others in the country are tightly held and almost never offered on the open market AND as it will cost upwards of $700,000.00 to import a similar example due to import taxes and luxury car tax. An extremely rare and exciting opportunity to acquire what is one of the most exceptional Bentley Continentals to exist in the world today. Buy immediately to avoid disappointment, another wait of 10 years for the next one to be offered for sale and to avoid this marque tripling in price again! Invitation to purchase offered to astute, smart, local and international collectors/investors for $498,990.
