Sellers description

1958 Bentley S1 James Young Saloon B10

This car is absolutely exceptional, being a rare James Young ‘finned rear wing’ design, and more importantly, having had a full, bare chassis up restoration in the 1990s, something like £80,000 having been spent on it, which of course represents a considerable amount more in today's money. Very nicely and appropriately painted in a lovely shade of deep blue with silver/grey upper parts and beautifully upholstered in beige leather, piped blue, complemented by fawn carpets and superb veneers. The car even 'smells right'. Even the boot is freshly carpeted, with an excellent rubberised, fitted over mat, giving protection. In gorgeous condition throughout, having been very well cared for, and now even better than when we last sold it in 2016, following another £15,000 or so spent on detailed attention, improving upon what was already a fabulous example. The car has power steering, air conditioning, upgraded to alternator charging and is fitted with an excellent stainless steel exhaust system. Complete with correct tools, large and small, and the previously mentioned history file, the car is driving exceptionally well, being smooth, relaxed and enjoyable, and keeping up with modern traffic with ease, As lovely as you would want it to be! MoT tested until March 2022.

Please note that the photos show the car's original registration number, VXA 297, which may well be available. We are looking into the possibility of claiming it back.

Snippets: The B10

James Young produced just 26 of the B10 design on the S1 (B = Bentley, 10 = 4-door saloon) with their distinctive square push buttons on the door handles, some of the B10 designed cars had discreet fins on the top of the rear wings, James Young also produced 24 cars to this design for Rolls-Royce on the Silver Cloud (called the SC10 design). Wealthy & discerning owners of cars with the B10 coachwork included – Mjr Peter Holdworth-Hunt MC, Sir Ivan Arthur Rice Stedeford, industrialist & philanthropist, Andre Fluckiger (Siss banker), Sir Bernard Docker (Daimler & BSA) and Sir William John Herbert de Wette Mullens.  The 1st owner of B140BA was Arthur Holmes who was an exceptional customer of both Rolls-Royce & Bentley – during the period of 1948 – 1966 he owned (from new) 14 Rolls-Royce cars and 12 Bentleys – he seemed to be particularly keen on Silver Wraiths (8) and Phantom Vs (6)!
