Joining for help

Greetings, I am joining for help fulfilling my dream of owning a '61 (my birth year) Bentley. I could use some help verifying a chassis number. B414LBS. I am referencing Graham Robson's book. From the chassis lists this should be CT (I think), and I can't make sense of the LBS. Any guideance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for your help making my dream come true.

Welcome to the forum. The chassis number you quote signifies that the car you're referring to is a Bentley S2 no.414 (L = left hand drive), (B = B Series) S (I don't know but perhaps BS refers to B Series). This car left the factory on 24th August 1960. I got this information on the Bentley Heritage site which you may find useful - https:heritage.bentley.com. Where Bentleys are concerned the letter C in the chassis number usually refers to Bentley "Continental" and CT may possibly refer to "Continental Tourer" insofar as I'm aware but the chassis number you quoted appears to be a 1960 LHD Bentley S2 B Series.
