1962 Bentley S2 Continental Flying spur by H.J. Mulliner.
Chassis number: BC98CZ
Registration number: 601CWA
Vintage and Prestige Fine Motor Cars are proud to be offering this 1962 Bentley S2 Continental Flying Spur by H.J. Mulliner for sale and just two owners from new with a documented 107,000 miles. The Bentley S2 Continental was relinquished by its second owner due to his advancing age having been its custodian since 1972.
This is a totally original example with its original leather and carpets still in place but with the exception of having undergone a recent bare metal re-spray completed at vast expense in its first colour of ‘Caribbean Blue’. The doors were removed as were the front and rear windows to ensure the finished paintwork looked beautiful.
To the interior is off white Connolly hide piped in blue with the leather being lightly patinated but very useable. Walnut occasional tables are fitted to the seat backs, as are seat belts. The second owner purchased the Bentley S2 Continental in April 1972 from the previous owner, Mr. Frank Hearnshaw, when the Bentley had covered about 55,000 miles.
This Bentley Flying Spur has been fully maintained throughout and has been serviced and repaired as necessary to its current and warranted mileage of 107,925 miles, in fact the Bentley has only been driven 10,000 miles since 1987. This Bentley S2 Continental still has all its original hand tools, torch, wheel changing tools and the hand book which is complete with its wiring diagram and lubricating chart.
It is supplied with a V5C registration document and an MOT test certificate with no advisories, which expires on 22nd August 2015. The Bentley also has its original 'buff' log book first stamped 13th April 1962 and a large history file full of invoices from when the current owner purchased the car. It even has the workshop orders between August 1968 to July 1971 and a letter dated April 1972 which gives the service history on record with Rippon Brothers between 1963 and 1967.
As may be expected the Bentley S2 Continental drives beautifully with smooth seamless gear changes and unruffled power are the order of the day. It is very hard to find such low ownership cars nowadays and it has been a pleasure to find one that has not been messed around with unduly since leaving the gates or Mulliner's Bedford Park works in Chiswick.
