This Bentley S1 picture has been sent to us by non-member Wayne Kennerley, an avid student of old cars in Southern Africa.
We see an example of the original Northern Rhodesia series which ran from the inception of registrations there in the 1920’s, up to 1963. This 6-cylinder Bentley S1 model was built from 1955-59 so if brought to Rhodesia new, this S1 would have received it’s EU (Lusaka/Mumbwa) 1850 plates in the original British style – but this car has replaced its plates in the format of the new 2000 > Zambia system of black on reflective white, pressed alloy.
Thanks, Wayne. Rare pictures.
