The last Bentley to be built on a separate chassis, in 1962, saw the introduction of the Bentley S3 factory bodied, standard steel saloon and, at first glance, it would appear that the all new S3 was merely an S2 with different headlamps. The introduction of the twin headlamps was clearly the most obvious change, but the differences did not end there. Further changes included the introduction of smaller bumper overriders and the repositioning of the front indicators and side lamps into one single unit on the front wing, resulting in a more attractive appearance. The S3's interior now had individual front seats in place of the split bench seat found in the earlier S-Types; and some, like this one, had electric windows and front seatbelts. Mechanically speaking the S3 was the same as the S2 with a 6,230cc, Rolls-Royce V8 engine and automatic gearbox but this model was fitted with larger carburettors, improved power steering to aid smoother movement at parking speed and a Lucas vacuum-advance distributor to aid fuel consumption, making it almost identical in mechanical specification to the S3 Continental that was being produced at the same time.

This Bentley S3 standard steel saloon was supplied on 7th July 1964 and is presented in stunning deep blue coachwork with complementary soft grey leather interior and blue carpets. The interior which includes the walnut dashboard is synonymous with the comfort of such a prestigious vehicle. In 2020, after having the vehicle repainted in 2019, the vendor undertook a full engine rebuild of his S3, these two investments on such a luxurious vehicle would have come with quite an investment. Unfortunately, due to a lack of storage the vendor has decided the car must now be sold, this poses a fantastic opportunity for the new keeper to own a post-war, factory-built Bentley perfect for special occasions.
