Came in 1958, Series 2 Bentley T had V8 engine and so did S2 Continental cars with a variety of body styles. One of them is a Park Ward’s “straight through” shoulder lined 2-door drophead/hardtop coupe cars. On the last of S- series Continental, S3 Continental, Park Ward set four headlamps skewed. The model later gained the nickname, “Chinese Eye”. In 1961 Park Ward merged with H.J. Milliner to be a subsidiary of Rolls-Royce Motors and the Chinese Eye were produced under the name of Mulliner Park Ward.
 
This particular S3 Continental was once an ex-car of Elton John, a super rock star and Bentley enthusiast. Fully restored at an early date, which added a pleasant patina with time.
