History

Chassis No BC4XD which we are currently offering for sale is one of just seventeen cars produced in right hand drive to Design No CV100 by James Young on the S3 Continental chassis. It was produced as direct competitor to the H.J.Mulliner styled Flying Spur and was a great success, with its flowing lines and stylish appearance. This particular car was completed in March 1965 to the order of Mr J Edwards of Farnham Common in Buckinghamshire, finished in James Young grey with a grey leather interior and supplied by Jack Barclay Ltd. It was also specified to be fitted with air conditioning and power windows. The car changed hands in June of 1966 when sold to Mr J Priestly of London and then again in February of 1968 when it was sold to Whipples Ltd in Lincolnshire. The car was then exported to the US but returned to the UK we believe in the 1980’s, repatriated by A.B Price. It was sold in 1990 to Mr J Myers who instructed the restoration to the coachwork, woodwork and various mechanical aspects. The car was then supplied in April 1994 to Mr Haynes who owned it for twenty years from this point. During the early years of Mr Haynes ownership, the engine was overhauled and has covered approximately 16,000 miles since. For the ensuing time, Mr Haynes had the car serviced and reviewed on an annual basis, maintaining BC4XD on a no expense spared basis. The car is complete with extensive documentation from the cars inception and build at James Young and a great deal of paperwork from 1990 to present day showing the restoration works and servicing invoices from Bentley specialists. It retains its original leather interior and complete tools. Chassis No BC4XD is a fine example of this rare and stylish design by James Young which is ready for touring.
