224 Bentley Continental in olive and pale apple green with original box

110 GBP
This is the model that really set the standards in 1961, with so many new features that had not been seen before. This was the first with jewelled headlamps, jewelled rear lights too, the first with chrome-plated fittings, the first with the superbly engineered steering system and even the first with a spare wheel!

There are essentially two colours available: a black and grey and a very pale green or cream and olive green. This is the olive green and pale apple-cream colour. A gold edition was made for Gift Set 20.

This is in fabulous condition, difficult to see any faults. The all-important emblem is intact and fully chromed, the windows are clean and clear and the wheel shiny. There is, of course, a good spare in the boot too. It comes with a slightly worn but original box that is bright and firm but has a small tear.
