Description

Lot #971 - This 1965 Bentley S-3 was sent to U.K. coachbuilder Harold Radford when new for installation of a manual sunroof and reclining front seats with headrests. It is one of 39 Harold Radford fitted-from-new post war Bentleys in existence. Further, it is one of only 26 left-hand drive Bentley S-3's in existence. It is a rare and beautiful Bentley indeed with only 67,000 miles from new. It was delivered to its original doctor owner in Houston, Texas where it was impeccably maintained and thoroughly enjoyed by him until the late 90`s. It was then sold to a Bentley enthusiast in Southern California who oversaw the extensive restoration to its present as-new condition. A thorough pictorial documentation of the complete and professional restoration process will accompany the motor car to its new owner. The original owners handbook, factory fitted hand and road tools, and accessories are included. Coachwork is finished in Bugundy Lacquer crested with Regal Red. Interior is finished in Magnolia Hydes with red piping and magnolia fitted Wilton carpets. Custom features are the original Radford fitted Sunshine Sliding Head and Radford reclining seats with headrests. This beautiful Bentley is correct in every detail and has been the recipient of several first place awards from the RROC.
