Further Info:

1 of just 568 Bentley T2s built, this particular example - chassis SBH34104 - was supplied new by Lex Mead of Maidenhead. Road registered as `WUW 171S' on 22nd June 1978, the luxury saloon entered the current ownership - that of His Excellency Hatim S. Zu'bi - some five years later. Finished in Dark Blue with Cream leather upholstery, the Bentley boasts some twenty-one service stamps up to 103,677 miles from the likes of Lex Mead, P&A Wood, Mann Egerton, Jack Barclay, Barnfield Restoration and Michael Powles. Kept garaged and off the road since 2004, the T2 currently shows some 109,000 miles to its odometer. Starting readily upon inspection, `WUW 171S' is deemed by the vendor's agent to be in `good' condition with regard to its 6750cc V8 engine, three-speed automatic transmission, electrical equipment and interior trim (though, the wood veneer door cappings could do with refinishing). There is corrosion evident to the rear wheelarches and an area of rust on the offside rear wing. A deserving project, this rare and increasingly collectible Bentley is offered for sale with V5C Registration Document, expired MOTs and book pack (warranty, service book, instruction manual etc).
