Concours Condition; The recipient of an massive nut & bolt restoration.
A royal car ordered new by & delivered to His Majesty the King of Denmark. These are rare machines being one of just 76 such examples built; The Chassis was dispatched from the works in Crewe to HJ Mulliner Park Ward in November of 1964. Having completed the body work the car then arrived at the Royal stables in April of 1965.
As His Majesty King Frederik IX wished to chauffeur the Bentley himself, it was delivered as a RHD; hence the metric speedometer. When His Majesty disposed of the 1965 Bentley, as the 1969 Model T Bentley DHC made its way into the Royal Household in Copenhagen, the S3 was sold to Professor Suenson, and when he passed away in 1983, Svend K Tholstrup Esq., President of the Kosan Group, purchased the Bentley from the Professor's estate; the automobile has remained in the Tholstrup Family to this date & is now being sold.
Finished in its original colours of deep metallic green, the car has just come out of a fastidious nut & bolt Restoration by the Danish authorised Rolls-Royce agents Bernt Hansen of Copenhagen. Now the car has arrived with us we are putting a couple of hundred shakedown miles upon it & can report that it is driving beautifullly. The orginal hood bag comes with the car. We are also having a duplicate made up in the same green double duck as the hood itself giving the new oner the option to use either.
The car is trimmed in green hide that has been re-dyed to preserve its originality. All the Burr walnut accents are in beautiful order & are highly figured. An assortment of pictures come with the car showing it in use by H.M. the King. This car represents a blue chip investment given its royal pedigree.
