paint is nice, not show quality, leather looks re-dyed, engine has
been rebuilt and detailed, no air conditioning, problems with starter,
leaky fuel pump, bad brakes. Odomoter shows 06139.

from RickCarey.com on the Christies Auction at Rockefeller Center,
New York on May 18, 2002:
# 42 1959 Bentley S2 Continental Drophead Coupe; Body by Park Ward;
S/N BC15LAR; Ice Blue / Navy Blue leather; Estimate $60,000 - $80,000;
Visually maintained, largely original, 3 condition; Not sold at
Hammer bid of $48,000 -- Fog lights, single headlights. Decent older
repaint, good interior, chrome and wood. Used car in presentable
condition. -- Here again, the last little increment of bidding enthusiasm
may have been inhibited by Christie's 17.5% commission which would
add $10,500 on top of a bid at the $60K low estimate, barely "reasonable"
for this car.
