1957 Bentley S1 Fastback


1957 Bentley S1 Fastback Salon Prive' Show Car

We had the privilege to be asked by Richards Of England to prepare one of two show cars for the Salon Prive’ 2019 Concours, one of which was a 1957 Bentley S1 Fastback.

One of the cars we did for Richards of England Salon Prive’ show piece, to celebrate a 100 years of Bentley.

Richards of England fully rebuilt this stunning 1957 Bentley S1 fast back to its glory.

The work carried out on the rebuild of this classic, took hundreds of man hours to complete this a one off rebuild.

Prior to the show we were tasked with detailing this elegant vehicle ensuring that it was in prime condition for the show.

The Bentley was detailed over the course of 2 days concentrating on the paint, enhancing the craftsmanship already completed.

Work That was carried out

The engine bay was meticulously detailed with all rubber, plastic and metals polished and sealed where needed.

The interior was fully cleaned with special attention aimed at the woodwork and dash.

The detailing package we applied to this 1957 Bentley, was specifically designed with the guys at Richards of England, which was incredibly important, not only to us, but also to Richards of England as we both wanted to ensure that what we did to the paint work and interior was sympathetic to the original finish that this classic had applied in 1957.

The package we used is more suited to classic cars that want to keep a vintage wax look.
