1961 Bentley Continental S2 - Park Ward Drop Head

This week we've found you a proper motor car that was created with the most refined enthusiast in mind. This is a true driver's car - a 1961 Bentley S2 Continental Park Ward Convertible.  Earlier this week we discussed coachbuilt Continentals and their desirability - this particular S2 ranks high in that category.  Mulliner Park Ward was a leading coachbuilder who's focus was on making the S2 a bit faster than its steel bodied siblings. The lightweight alloy body, diminished aerodynamic profile and large V-8 stuffed under the bonnet all added up to make this a perfect balance between performance and style.  This wonderful automobile is offered by Daniel Schmitt & Co. in St. Louis:

 

The seller claims the car is fully restored and is one of the finest examples of a classic Bentley to ever roll through their showroom:
