1965 Bentley SIII

The Series III S Type was the ultimate development of the S Type Bentley and this example was one of the very last Bentley SIII's to be delivered. The SIII was fitted with the V8 engine delivering some 215bhp and this model became the last Bentley to be constructed using a separate chassis frame.

FKJ 122C was supplied new by H.A Fox of London and first registered in March 1965 to Jabez Barker & Son Ltd, London. The Bentley was supplied in Astral Blue over Black with light Blue leather and today the car is still as it left the factory in original colours.

This Bentley is a largely original car that has been superbly maintained, particularly between 1991 and 2002 when looked after by Goudhurst Rolls Royce and Bentley Specialists in Kent. Invoices throughout this period total in excess of £9000 and it is clear the car was maintained with no expense spared. Detailed invoices accompany the car and we also have MOT certificates dating back to 1982 when the mileage 108798. We originally bought this vehicle in 2008 when the car had covered 139000 miles. We sold the Bentley to a close friend who has covered in the region of 5000 miles in the car. The Bentley was driven from Yorkshire to South Wales and performed faultlessly and over the past five years has been a true delight to own.  The Bentley drives superbly and has exceptional performance as expected with a strong, well maintained V8 engine.

FKJ 122C presents beautifully with excellent paintwork and has lovely, straight panels. The chrome gleams, the car has a wonderful feel of quality and is very elegant. The leather upholstery is largely original with very good carpets and quality over rugs. Woodwork, door cards and the headlining are in excellent order and as you would expect with a top quality, luxury motor car.

On the road this SIII is a true delight with smooth power distribution from the very quiet V8 engine. The gearbox is slick with lovely soft changes up and down, the brakes are sharp and the car handles superbly. The Bentley will be supplied with a full 12 months MOT and will be serviced within the asking price of £29,995.

A beautifully presented, useable SIII Bentley that is ideal for regular use and long distance touring.
