1960 Bentley S2 Continental Drophead Coupe by Park Ward 1 of 125The Bentley S2 Continental offered here is an example of Park Ward\'s influential and elegant \'straight through wing\' body style. It is one of only 125 examples bodied in this fashion by Park Ward, of which only 60 were original right-hand drive cars like this one. It seems likely that the colorway is the way in which it was originally supplied, a tobacco brown hue that suits the lines of the car well and is offset by a light tan top and interior. In recent years the Bentley has been laid up in garage storage. In preparation for the sale, the car was checked over and was able to be made to run and drive. We would recommend a more thorough checking over and recommissioning prior to road activity. According to its factory records, copies of which are on file, the original supplying agent was Clyde Autos Ltd. the long-established Glasgow entity who had both sold and even provided coachwork for Rolls-Royce since the 1920s. The name attached to the order was Alex N. Gibb. However, interestingly, Martin Bennett\'s Bentley Continental book lists its first owner as J. Mitchell and its UK license plate to have been \'DEG 1\', so perhaps this was an early change of custodian. By 1980, the Rolls had emigrated to America and was now the property of Thomas E. Troxell of Coopersburg, Pennsylvania and it was from this person that the previous owner acquired the car. Accompanying this rare four seater convertible Bentley Continental are an original handbook and accessory tool kit.Coachwork by Park Ward & Co.Chassis no. BC93AREngine no.
