2 Owners, Bentley Service History

This is a superb example which only became available through bereavement. The car has covered just 57,000 miles with Bentley main dealer service history, the service records detailing previous maintenance at 3027, 6057, 10142, 13445, 17385, 24249, 28397, 30492, 33938, 38901, 42455, 45249, 48549, 51918, 53030, 54376 and 55127 miles, all services having been carried out by Bentley. In addition to the stamped service book we have a collection of old MOT's for the vehicle and MOT history from VOSA. Current MOT June 2016 with no advisory notices.
Purchased in 1991 by an elderly gentleman from the original owner with just 13,000 miles, the car was retained by the gentleman until his passing in 2006. During this time the car was serviced exclusively by Bentley main agents. Upon his passing ownership was transferred to the gentleman's daughter who retained the car as a memento of her father, only recently making the decision to part with the car. During her tenure the lady kept the car MOT'd and had basic servicing attended to and covered less than 2000 miles in the last ten years.

We collected this car from the owner's rural home where we were made most welcome. On inspection the engine oil was spotlessly clean and the car started instantaneously, settling down to a smooth idle with no tappet noise. On test drive the car performed faultlessly with a smooth gearchange, seamless power delivery, well controlled ride, excellent braking and no slop in the steering. We drove the car almost 200 miles back to our premises, the car cruising effortlessly at the motorway limit giving us no cause for concern whatsoever. This car has definitely not been left languishing, the owner insisting it has been taken for rural trips on a reasonably regular basis to keep it operating correctly.

 Finished in striking Vermillion which looks absolutely stunning, the interior is trimmed in cream hide piped red with red top roll, cream bottom roll and red carpets which are protected by red lambs wool over rugs. The rugs have faded somewhat over the years but have protected the carpets well. The rear compartment is equipped with footstools and reading lights. This car benefits from the Mulsanne chrome grille with flying "B" emblem.
The condition of the car is quite exceptional for the age with both bodywork and interior in excellent order, the car belies it's almost 30 years of age showing minimal signs of wear and no damage to the woodwork, all very attractive indeed.
Specification of the period to include electric seats with memories, split level climate control air conditioning, Pioneer stereo with boot mounted CD changer, cruise control, town and country horns, electric windows front and rear, electric mirrors, central locking, headlamp washers, trip odometer, 15 inch alloy wheels with matching Avon Turbospeed narrow band whitewall tyres all round.

Supplied with original keys, original book pack containing owners manuals, stamped service book etc.
The vehicle will be fully prepared upon sale and supplied with a new MOT with no advisory notices. Interesting part exchange considered.
This is an exceptionally striking example in superior condition with low ownership and an excellent main dealer service record. Cars with this provenance are few and far between.

N.B. Our premises are not a traditional car showroom, all our vehicles are stored indoors in a secure facility and it is not possible to view our cars when we are not there. We travel extensively sourcing and collecting cars so all viewings must therefore be arranged by appointment, thank you.
