224 Bentley Continental Sports Saloon green/pale green with original box

120 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 and olive green. This is a nice example of the pea green and very pale pea green version. A gold edition was made for Gift Set 20.

This is in fabulous condition, the only flaws being tiny chips on one side and small chips on the bumpers. The all-important emblem is intact, the windows are clean and clear and the wheels shiny. There is, of course, a good spare in the boot too. It has a super box, firm and bright and complete.
