This Bentley S3 #B124HN is a representative of the last generation of Bentleys with a separate chassis. The standard saloon coach with its twin head lamps and slightly lowered bonnet and grille is considered one of the most attractive and elegant cars ever made by the factory.
The car was ordered new by Mr M. MacDonald of Comet (Manchester) Ltd in Golborne, Lancashire, England. He specified several very special features, such as electric windows, UD.2161 lamps to each door pillar, combined parking and blinking lights, a door with lock to the driver’s cubby hole, an extra roof light between the sun visors, a mirror to both sides vent frame, a mirror to the driver’s sun visor in addition to the one fitted to the passenger’s, a safety belt to each front seat, and USA type overriders. A former owner mounted a S3 Continental type of dashboard with a rev counter and four separate gauges for ampere, oil pressure, water temperature and fuel level. From August 1973 the car resides in The Netherlands where its first owner owned it for dozens of years.
