1959 Bentley S1 Saloon

Nothing looks like a 1959 Bentley S1 Saloon … except, of course, a Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud 1, which looks almost exactly the same, the only differences being the radiator grill and badging—that’s it!

Photographs of the 1959 Bentley S1

At the time of these photographs, this 1959 Bentley S1 Saloon was part of the collection of Leonard Johnson in Colorado. Though the body and interior were original Bentley, the 4.9 liter, in-line 6-cylinder engine had been replaced with a V8 from a late-model Cadillac. Here are a few photos from the photoshoot.
