Our 1958 Bentley S1 (Standard Steel Saloon) with Chassis number: B239 FD was invoiced by Bentley Motors Ltd on the 12th November 1958 for the amount of £5,543.17s (Purchase tax included) to Tesco Stores Ltd, Tesco House, Angel Road, Edmonton, London N18. Registered to Hyman Kreitman, the son-in-law of Tesco founder Sir John Cohen, and Chairman of Tescos group 1968-1974, it was originally registered at the DVLA with UYY 100, which Mr Kreitman later changed, appropriately, to HK 666. The car was delivered by the renowned London supplier, Jack Barclay Ltd, on the 14th November 1958. Interestingly, the vehicle was financed by Courtland Finance Co., 3 Winnington Avenue, London N2. The car features in Davide Bassoli’s wonderful books ‘Under the Spotlight’ Volume II, which lists all of Rolls Royce and Bentley’s cars at the Earls Court Motor Show from 1937 to 1976. The chassis number and build details are indicated accordingly, along with a picture of the Bentley Stand Nr. 167 for 1958 (Oct 22- Nov 01), clearly showing the car in its original livery of Shell Grey over Steel Blue. It’s not clear when Mr Kreitman sold the car, but it did spend many years in the United States before being imported to Germany in the early 2000’s. Now beautifully restored in Old English White with contrasting brown leather, the end result is astonishing and would grace any collection or Bentley enthusiast garage.
