1963 Bentley S3 Continental Coupe

See all the Images for this Car
The third and final iteration of the Bentley S Type debuted as the S3 for the 1963 model year, with a new fixed head coupe joining the lineup. This example is one of 27 left-hand-drive coupes equipped with contemporary H.J. Mulliner, Park Ward Ltd. coachwork for design body no. 2035, and one of just seven examples known to the RROC today. The Continental designation was reserved for the performance model, which, on the S3 chassis, incorporated a more raked steering column and lower radiator grille providing improved aerodynamics for better performance. The original owner of this S3 Continental Coupe was media mogul Lew Wasserman, who ran MCA/Universal. Chassis BC18LXC is equipped with power windows, in-door refreshment cabinets, and rare factory air-conditioning. Cloaked in dark green paintwork and light tan leather upholstery, BC18LXC features a walnut-trimmed dashboard with a full array of gauges, including a tachometer. Presenting in excellent condition, and accompanied by extensive invoices from its current ownership, it was the cover car and subject of a recent feature article in the Silver Cloud & Bentley S Type Society’s Post “55” publication. This example represents the end of the firm’s true custom-bodied models, the perfect complement to the performance Continental chassis, a name retired after the S3 and not revived until 1984. BC18LXC will grant its next owner the ideal blend of exclusivity, driving pleasure, and comfort for which Bentley is famous.
