Chassis no: BC16XD
1965 Bentley S3 HJ Mulliner Park Ward Drop Head Coupe Chinese Eye.
Chassis number: BC16XD
Concours Condition; The recipient of an on-going nut & bolt restoration.
A royal car ordered new by & delivered to His Majesty the King of Denmark. The Chassis was dispatched from the works in Crewe to HJ Mulliner Park Ward in November of 1964. Having completed the body work the car then arrived at the Royal stables in April of 1965.
As His Majesty King Frederik IX wished to chauffeur the Bentley himself, it was delivered as a RHD; hence the metric speedometer. When His Majesty disposed of the 1965 Bentley, as the 1969 Model T Bentley DHC made its way into the Royal Household in Copenhagen, the S3 was sold to Professor Suenson, and when he passed away in 1983, Svend K Tholstrup Esq., President of the Kosan Group, purchased the Bentley from the Professor's estate; the automobile has remained in the Tholstrup Family to this date & is now being sold as an estate sale.
Finished in its original colours of deep metallic green, the car is just coming out of a fastidious nut & bolt Restoration by the Danish authorised Rolls-Royce agents Bernt Hansen of Copenhagen. We expect the car to be completed around the first two weeks of June at which time a few hundred shake down miles will be put on it prior to delivery to its new owner.
Upon arrival we will produce our usual set of high quality photographs.
