HAPPY CLIENT

Hello Mr. Lowrey:  I wanted to tell you the ’77 Corvette made it home safely.  I know you were a little concerned about driving it this far, but I had no problems at all.  It turned heads all the way home.  My buddies are “jealous”.  Thank you again for being honest about the car and I know I will enjoy it for a long time.  RT, MS

Jim, it was nice working with you.  I am not sure if I will do anything to the car (1970 GTO), but it really is a lot better car than I thought originally because the price was so good.  I am glad I came to look at it and have my mechanic check it out.  I will keep up with your cars because I still want to add to my collection as I can.  Thank you again.  AB, AL

HAPPY CLIENT

Everything has gone great on the 1970 Dodge Charger RT.  Once the transport dropped it off, we are getting it ready to ship to Sweden and the buyer in Sweden is so excited and he can’t wait to get it.  Thank you for your help in making this transaction possible.  We have other international buyers looking for all kinds of vehicles, so let’s stay in touch.  Thanks again and it was a pleasure working with you.

Jim did an absolutely fabulous job from start to selling of my husbands car. He took, what was a very stressful situation for me, and made it very easy. He handled every detail as if he knew my husband personally. I highly recommend his services for selling your prized vehicles.(Sheryl, Birmingham, AL)

Description
1961 Bentley S2 Continental Park Ward Drophead Coupe: Delivered New to Wilt Chamberlain and 1 of Only 65 LHD Examples Built

The Bentley S2 Continental offered here is an example of Park Ward's influential and elegant 'straight through wing' body style. It is one of only 125 examples bodied in this fashion by Park Ward; of which only 65 were original left-hand drive cars like this one. Retrimmed in the 2000s to its current Caribbean Blue over Beige leather and matching blue piping. This elegant, hand-built Bentley Continental presents nicely throughout, and remains in its original left-hand drive configuration. Runs and drives but would benefit from servicing prior to use.

BC99LCZ was ordered new in New York by Wilt 'The Stilt' Chamberlain from Rolls-Royce of New York. Copies of the build records state that the Bentley, originally finished in Opal over Off White hides with a Tan top, featured a radio with power aerial, power operated top and windows, Sundym glass, an altimeter, and a "special driver's seat to suit owner" along with 2 inch longer steering column. Purchased in his third season as a professional basketball player, Chamberlain was earning a princely $65,000 a season and by the time this Bentley was delivered on April 19th, 1962 had set a number of records including scoring 100 points in a single game, landing over 4,000 points in the regular season, snagging over 2,000 rebounds, and playing 3,882 minutes of the 3,890 minutes his team was on the floor. Delivered to his 342 Central Park West, New York City apartment with the UK registration plates '685 CGT' with a picture of Chamberlain and his new Bentley on file, the Drophead likely moved West with Wilt when the Philadelphia Warriors for which he played moved to San Francisco for the 1962-3 season. It is not recorded how long Chamberlain kept this Bentley but it would stay in California for the better part of its existence. Reported to have only been in two separate Southern California garages following Chamberlain's ownership. This elegant, celebrity owned Bentley S2 Continental Drophead Coupe would be a pleasurable summer motoring companion and hails from the very end of coach built Bentley motor car production.
