Singularity of the car

Delivered new in New York in 1958, this Bentley Serie 1 has been the delight of its current French owner since 2007. Carefully maintained and stored in good conditions, it has a follow-up of invoices from 2008 to 2023 and is in remarkable condition for its age.

Last maintenance: transistorized ignition, revised carburetion, replacement of spark plugs and steering cylinder, rear tires, brakes.

Aesthetics

Although the bodywork shows some wear and tear, the paintwork is very homogeneous and deep. Its chrome shines brightly, its doors are well aligned and its joints have kept a good flexibility and waterproofness. The observation of the undercarriage is the apparent proof of perfect storage conditions and regular maintenance. Except for some minor seepage under the engine, the running gear is in good shape and the chassis, blacked out, shows no trace of rust or corrosion.

Interior

The Connolly leather upholstery in a beautifully vintage luxury case could use a little refreshing. The roof lining and the burr walnut woodwork are in good condition and have a nice patina. Only the sunroof and air conditioning are no longer functional.

Mechanics

Opening the engine cover reveals a very clean package. The 4.9-liter inline-six is unsophisticated, and exudes health. This robust engine delivers a pleasant musical score and linear power, well supported by a 4-speed automatic transmission.

With its high degree of comfort and its reliable and smooth engine, the Bentley S1 remains one of the most prestigious cars of its time. Ahead of its time and very exclusive, it is today a safe bet and remains a mythical model highly sought after by collectors.

Historical summary of the model

From the end of the Second World War, Bentley, although under the leadership of Rolls-Royce, aspired to more performance than the productions bearing the Spirit of Ecstasy statuette. Manufactured and designed in Crewe, the new factory of both brands, the original Bentley Serie 1 was born in 1955. It was very popular with the British and especially with the British army, especially because of its legendary Rolls-Royce in-line six-cylinder engine from 1922. Aesthetically close to the Silver Cloud, this family sedan will become the symbol of a certain aristocracy. In total, only 296 examples were exported to the USA, which testifies to its exclusive character today.
