Classic Car Overview

This is arguably one of the most beautiful designs ever made on a Post-War Bentley. One of just 16 LHD 1958 Bentley S1 Continental Flying Spur Sport Saloon by H.J. Mulliner, this example was special ordered for famed Hollywood legend Alfred Hitchcock for delivery to his Bel Air, CA estate. Mr. Hitchcock custom ordered his Continental with increased capacity air conditioning and power steering, both desirable and rare upgrades. Being beautifully restored, this Bentley would be as comfortable on a concours lawn as it would on a tour. BC34LEL was ordered directly with Rolls-Royce, Inc. in New York for Alfred Hitchcock on January 27, 1958. The guarantee was issued on July 25th, 1958 and it was transport from London to Los Angeles aboard the Loch Garth on the 30th of July, 1958. Mr. Hitchcock ordered the H.J. Mulliner six light Flying Spur design no. 7443 on the S1 Continental chassis, of which a mere 16 were built in left-hand drive form. According to Sarah Holibaugh of the Rolls-Royce Foundation, at the time of its delivery he was working on the sixth season of Alfred Hitchcock Presents , and it is said that Cash Bentley, central character of the episode O Youth and Beauty, was named after this Bentley. Most recently, Alfreds Bentley was in the renowned collection of Dr. Gail Reingold of Los Angeles, CA. Dr. Reingold retained D&D Classic Automobile Restoration of Covington, Ohio and well-known Michigan upholsterer Mark Larder to complete a restoration of the Bentley. The Continental is featured in a gorgeous Velvet Green, which appears nearly black unless it is in the sunlight. It is a deep and rich dark green that is in wonderful condition today with excellent shine and luster. The chrome and stainless-steel trim are also in excellent condition. The wide white walled radials look terrific and compliment the darker livery well. Overall, the exterior is in concours quality condition. The interior is a deep and luscious Biscuit Tan Leather with Dark Green piping. The leather is very soft and supple and in excellent condition overall. The Tan Wilton wool carpeting is also in very nice condition and benefits from Bentley logo overlays for daily use. The H.J. Mulliner burl walnut veneer is spectacular. The Flying Spurs are well known for the gorgeous woodwork. It surrounds the passenger compartment and is truly stunning. The Bentley has benefitted from updated stereo systems and added seat belts. The engine compartment is exceptionally well detailed. The finishes are in excellent condition overall and is show quality. The venerable 4.9 liter straight six cylinder used dual SU carburetors and produced nearly 180 hp. This is connected to the four-speed automatic transmission, power steering and servo power assisted brakes. As elegant as the styling is, this Continental chassis was designed to be a high-speed touring car when new. The performance is striking. This Bentley comes complete with its large and small tools, ja
