  • The incredible 1963 Bentley S3 Continental Saloon by James Young Sedan featured here is finished in stunning Old English White over a grey Connolly leather interior and magnificent burled walnut throughout.   In the 1970’s the S3 was purchased by noted actor and comedian Dudley Moore who was frequently seen driving the car in the Los Angeles area during the 1980’s. Photographs of Mr. Moore with the Bentley accompany the car today along with an incredible assortment of documentation including the original build document copies and construction records from the R.R.E.C. After Dudley Moore’s passing the Bentley was offered as part of his estate auction held by Christie’s in 2002 where this incredibly significant Bentley realized a selling bid of $145,000!

     

     

    Since that time, the S3 Continental has been exclusively in collector level ownership. Today the car remains virtually untouched since leaving Mr. Moore’s estate. As such the Bentley presents today with a level of patina that one would expect from a nearly 60-year-old motorcar with some wear evident on the paint and interior. However, this example could be driven and enjoyed as is and would be an ideal candidate for a vintage rally or tour!

    We are especially proud to offer this exceedingly rare 1963 Bentley S3 Continental Saloon by James Young to the most astute collector, investor or enthusiast who appreciates the level of rarity and incredible ownership provenance found in this stunning motorcar. Classic cars have proven to be among the most resilient and rewarding investments in recent years with the Historic Automobile Group Index (HAGI) jumping 39% in 2013, 16% in 2014 and 17% in 2015 while posting gains of 467% over the last 10 years. Ready to make an investment you can actually enjoy? Please contact one of our expert sales consultants for more information. They will be happy to give you a complete walk-around, supply you with a more detailed description, and answer any questions you may have. Buy with confidence.

    Financing

    Finance rates as low as 5.9%.


    We know that classic car financing can pose a unique challenge. Although a vintage or exotic car can be an excellent investment, some financial institutions attempt to apply standard “used car” rules for financing a classic car, which in many cases can make loan approval difficult.


    We work closely with many banking institutions that understand and recognize the collector value of classic cars and view them as an investment, which allows us to help you get the financing you need so that you can have the car you have dreamed of.


    Terms available up to 144 Months


    If you have any questions, feel free to contact us, (314)291-7000 or credit@schmitt.com
