Limousines

1964 Bentley S-3 Saloon

Built from 1962 to 1965, our Bentley is one of only 75 left hand drive S-3s ever made, and one of only nine sold in Canada. Hand built in Crewe, England, our Bentley was delivered to Vancouver BC on September 9, 1964 to it’s first owner, Dr. J.E. Kania of Howe Street, Vancouver.

The last iteration of the Bentley S line, the S-3 was introduced in the Paris Motor show in 1962, along with it’s sister the Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud. Large and beautiful, these cars had true presence on the road, leaving no doubt it carried someone important.


1972 Daimler DS420 Vanden Plas Limousine

This “last of the real limousines” was built by Daimler from 1968 until 1992. Also known as the Daimler Limousine, the DS420 was bought for Heads of State, Ministries of Defence (the car could be equipped with kevlar armour plating) and many other Government agencies through the entire Commonwealth.

The late British Queen Mother had six of these cars consecutively, and the British Royal Mews still have three DS420 limousines in active service. The Royal Courts of Denmark and Sweden and the Grand Duchy of Luxemburg also have this model in active service. Former users are the courts of Spain, Belgium, Monaco, Morocco, Jordania, Bahrein, and many presidents.

The most eccentric customer was the American billionaire Howard Hughes. He had a very special interior fitted, including a toilet under the rear bench.
