6.75 Twin Carburettor V8. Finished in metallic Georgian Silver with Royal Blue Hyde interior and chestnut high gloss wooden veneer and door capping’s. This is a fine opportunity to purchase the most complete non-smokers Bentley on the market and fast becoming a rarity on UK roads with prices increasing. 130,750 miles with full-service history and a total of 32 Bentley booklet stamps accordingly. (22 main dealer stamps dated and verified and 10 Rolls Royce and Bentley specialist) along with MOT until 20th May 2019. Complete with 2 keys and an alloy wheel locking key. Car has maintained regardless of cost and everything works as a Bentley should. This is not your typical car with rot. Electric seats, Electric Mirrors, Electric windows, Map Lights, automatic elevating radio aerial, 15” Alloy wheels with proper Avon Turbosteel tyres all the way around. ABS, Power Steering, rear vanity lighting. Air conditioning, this has been re-gassed to the correct legislation of R134A and blows ice cold. Cruise Control. Every single thing works on my car, the rear electric windows are a little slow but require more use. Door speakers have been upgraded to JL Audio coaxials and comes with a Sony 10 disc auto-changer in the boot. Only 3 owners from new, who’ve had it for a long time. I’ve owned the car since March 2012 (7 years in total) and maintained the car regardless of cost. It’s been my pride and joy and I’ve a huge folder full of new parts and work carried out. A previous owner in June 1999 had the front wing scratched and naturally went through insurance whom gave the vehicle a Category 'N' classification. Work was carried out accordingly with no structural damage. RAC HPI report confirms this for your peace of mind. Listed below are a list of new items which have cost me thousands over the years: 4 new tyre's, rear suspension spheres changed to give a softer, controlled ride, brake discs and pads changed all the way around and a massive job of both complete rear hub assembly replacement, professional tracking all the way around. New subframe mount, wiper control unit and switch, Bentley mud flaps, transmission fluid, filter and gasket serviced. New ignition coil, rotor and HT leads changed. New fuel pump and fuel lines – a big expense. All V-Belts replaced, new boot release mechanism, reconditioned exhaust manifold, new thermostat and electric start choke vacuum. New rear polly anti-roll bars, hydraulic brakes serviced. Underneath all wax oiled and rear axle oil replaced. New Viscous Fan coupling, rewiring, and water pump, at a great cost, along with new heater taps. As this car is 34 years old, please do expect some wear and tear to areas like sear bolsters, arm rests, and one of the rear door capping’s’ is starting to lose its veneer a little. Car starts first time and every time with the flick of the gas pedal. Brakes are amazing, gears change seamlessly through a smooth 3 speed auto box, and car does not overheat or burn coolant. Runs like an absolute dream and has been a pleasure to own. £7,995.00. Decent offers will be considered. Any questions and inspection very welcome. You will not be disappointed. Many thanks.
