- A rare Bentley T1 in a very agreeable colour combination
- Supplied with a quantity of hand books and its original service book, plus various invoices
- Reported by the vendor to be in "very good" to "excellent" condition in all respects
This wonderfully coloured Bentley T1 was first registered in May 1975 and is believed to have been supplied new by Rossleigh of Perth. The hand book is accompanied by the original service book which apparently has maintenance stamps from both Rossleigh and HR Owen, and also Phantom Motors of Surrey in 1996. Bills are on file that show £2,700 has been spent on the car in last two years by a known Rolls-Royce and Bentley specialist in West London. Supplied with the rare option of speed (cruise) control the sumptuous burgundy interior also includes the original Pioneer cassette player and the Blaupunkt radio receiver (instruction books for both are present). With the previous owner having purchased the car in 1998, the vendor and his daughter recently acquired this silver-grey coloured T1 on a whim as his late father used to own a similarly coloured and aged Silver Shadow many years ago. Very much a car enthusiast, he regrettably now has to see the car find a new home due to a lack of appropriate storage and his daughter's unexpected overseas work posting. MOT'd until October 2017, the vendor recently had a most pleasurable drive in the car from London to his Gloucestershire home, and he describes the Bentley as having "very good" bodywork, paintwork, and interior trim, and "excellent" engine, transmission, and electrical equipment.
