Description for Bentley Other 1963

1963 Bentley Continental S3 Coupe “Chinese Eye” - RHD

For a human being, 54 years is a good amount of time, but to an automobile it’s an eternity! The ravages of time aren’t just from nature. Tastes change, trends die, and once-envied designs have a way of looking absurd. Once in a while though, an automobile endures despite all this, and ultimately, becomes a classic. That car is 1963 Bentley Continental S3 Coupe!!!

Bentley's magnificent Continental sports saloon has been synonymous with effortless high speed cruising in the grand manner since its introduction on the R-Type chassis in 1952.The S3 Continental was strictlycoachbuilt. Most bodies were of the altered H.J. Mulliner (HJM) style, available in fixed head or drop head coupe form.

Like earlier Continentals, the sportier S3 bodywork was manufactured entirely from aluminum, unlike the heavier, steel bodied S3 saloon. This, combined with higher gearing and the better compression ratios made for a markedly faster car.Also, being handcrafted from aluminum, these bodies do not rust, making it a true bonus for collectors!!

All S3’s have in-line quad headlights with contemporary Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud headlight bezels. However, the 2-door Continental S3 was unique in receiving slanted bezels, and it makes this model stand out from other Continental’s S3. Because of this feature Continental S3 coupe received a “Chinese Eye” nickname.

The Bentley Continental S3 represents an era when British luxury cars rule supreme! This was one of the last of the traditional Bentleys before a new model arrived for 1965, making it significant to Rolls-Royce and Bentley aficionados!!

The 2-door Continental models, with their sportier coachbuilt bodies, have a majestic quality and unmistakable style and charm!

Up for auction is a timeless and very elegant NUMBERS MATCHING 1963 Bentley Continental S3 Coupe, also known as “Chinese Eye”!!

During its course of production, there were ONLY 311 Continental S3’s built (291 by H.J. Mulliner Park Ward and 20 byJames Young) and this beauty is one of them.

What makes this Bentley special is that it comes with a very rare Sunroof option! Not a lot of S3’s came with it!

This particular S3 was imported to Florida from UK in 1976 by prominent local Dentist who had endless love for British luxury cars!! He owned this car from 1976 (41 years!). He flew to London in summer of ‘76, and came home to US with few newly acquired Rolls-Royce’s and Bentley’s!

All original Import paperwork is present as well as the original bill of sale when he purchased this Bentley in UK!

Original UK registration is present as well, documenting ownership of every individual who owned this beautiful car throughout its lifetime!

First owner was Sir William J. Lithgow, 2nd Baronet - a Scottish industrialist and vice-chairman of Lithgow Group. In 1952 he inherited the Scottish shipbuilding company,Lithgows, which was established by his grandfather,William Lithgow. At the time, it was the largest private shipbuilding concern in the world! This ownership is also documented in the book by marque expert Martin Bennett “Bentley Continental – Corniche & Azure 1951-2002” (please see picture!)

As soon as it was imported to US, its new owner wanted to refresh this beauty back to its original condition, as its original color was changed couple of times to suite the tastes of its previous owners!

Car was taken apart, paint was stripped, body was primered and got ready for paint, original and number matching engine was pulled out, taken apart completely and rebuilt (new crank, new cam shaft, new pistons, connecting rods, valves, etc.), original new parts were ordered for whatever the car needed,including the aftermarket A/C system for those hot Florida days!! It was in full swing to be assembled, and back on the road, and then life happened!! It was parked into storage with few other cars that were also in the process of being reconditioned, and forgotten for over 40 years!! Good storage and warm Florida climate preserved this Continental! Attached is the picture of how we found it, covered in decades of dust!

This Bentley appears to be all complete and it makes a perfect candidate for completing the restoration that was started decades ago, especially afterthe hardest part of disassemblingthe car, and rebuilding the original engine is already done!!! Original body is very straight, as well as the original and unmolested undercarriage!

Original glass is all complete, with no cracks in the windows. Original selling Bentley and Rolls-Royce dealer sticker “Frank Dale & Stepsons” is still affixed to its original windshield!

Interior is complete as well, and in remarkably preserved condition (especially after being stored for 40+ years), including the fine leather seats, and wood paneling, especially around the dash and instrument gauges!

Original Vinyl roof shows no signs of shrinkage, and this beauty comes equipped with very rare sunroof!!

It comes with all the documents from the first owner in 1963 when it was purchased new to Summer of 1976 when this car was purchased and Imported to United States by its new owner who owned it for 40+ years! It even comes with its original British License Plate (KHS 438D) that is documented on the Import paperwork and original registration!! (Please See Pictures).

All numbers (Chassis # BC84XB, and Motor # 42BBC), are documented and matching not only through the original registration card and other documentation, but also through the Bentley Continental book by Rolls-Royce and Bentley expert and guru Martin Bennett which will be included with this car!!!

This beautiful Bentley will only continue to appreciate in its value, and with time, these cars are getting harder and harder to come by, especially as only 311 cars were EVER produced!!!

This Bentley represents not only great addition to any Rolls-Royce or Bentley collection, but also a great investment, which will only continue to appreciate in its value!!!!!
