Throughout history Rolls-Royce and Bentley made their chassis’ available to specialist coachbuilders, however, by the late 1950’s and early 1960’s coach built motor cars had become extremely rare and they were built in very small numbers for the ‘rich and famous’. One of the more interesting and exclusive coach built models from this era were the Bentley Continentals, built as sedans, coupes and convertibles by coach builders such as HJ Mulliner, Park Ward, James Young, Hooper and others.
