15000 orig miles! "LIKE" brand new & factory cond. Famous 6.75L Rolls-Royce V8 for sale
Without doubt and certainly one of the best condition late 80s Bentley Mulsanne S you will find!
Presenting a Bentley Mulsanne S in classic Cotswold beige with black hand-painted fine lines to its waistrails. The interior is finished in pristine Magnolia Connolly hides with black piping and contrasting tan carpets with matching Magnolia binding. Condition-wise. this would arguably be amongst the nicest late 80s Bentley in North America.
This is a true 9½ out of 10 car that is of show quality standard. It has an amazing 15. 70 original miles and the car simply looks like it is new. All original paint. tyres. and finishes. The interior even smells like a brand new Bentley (I will never forget the smell when I visited the Crewe factory in the late 1990s!).
This is well appointed example which has been meticulously maintained by its 1 previous Bentley enthusiast owner. It is a Canada specification car hence the kilometer speedometer (24. 50 klms = 15. 70 miles). The car is in full compliance with US standards. She has been museum displayed and stored for more than 10 years.
An impeccably maintained example in excellent condition and presents beautifully. It sports original specification and factory fitted Goodyear NCT tyres – these are no longer available and are a brilliant touch of originality and certainly period correct.
Being a Mulsanne S it has the 4 large round headlamps from the Turbo R and the full length centre console also from its big brother. She sports her own alloy wheels.
The body and paint is in excellent original condition with virtually no imperfections. The car still "dressed" in its original single stage paint and is a fantastic testament to its coddled ownership and originality. It is high in luster. completely consistent and just beautiful.
The interior mahogany wood finishes are in perfect condition and are also the factory original Rolls-Royce/Bentley factory finish. The rich depth of the quasi-ebony finish contrasts very handsomely with the almost white leather seats and finishings. The Connolly hides are without a single mark or blemish and present like new. They are very soft and supple as has been captured in the photos where I have "squeezed" the leather. Simply stunning and beautiful - in need of nothing. Truly exquisite. The dash “top-roll” and rear parcel shelf are flawless. The headliner is simply “like new” and the carpets still “wool-ball” like new ones.
As you would expect. she has all its original jack. tools. manuals. keys. spare mineral oil. gloves and even the "new owner" cassette tape for its first owner when new.
Having spent almost all its life indoors and in the last 15 years. in climate controlled museum storage at all times. the car is very clean and dry and there are absolutely no signs of rust. Mechanically the car has been well maintained. The condition and presentation under the hood is excellent testimony to this. It was not even cleaned for the photos. The mileage is not verifiable by independent receipts but upon close inspection; under the hood. the underside. inside the doors. etc. there can be no question to its authenticity. As you would expect with a Bentley of this caliber. it comes with a squeeky clean AutoCheck report.
~~ Presenting as a totally original Bentley Mulsanne S. this is a beautiful and very fine example that presents as a true 9½ out of 10 Show car. It undoubtedly ranks as a true 10-out-of-10 driver – not an easy claim to make these days. You could confidently drive this Mulsanne “as-is” to your next Bentley & Rolls-Royce meet with the intention of winning a prize. It is that good! ~~

This is by no means NOT a typical 1989 Bentley and as such will command considerably more than average prices. Notwithstanding. reasonable offers will be considered.

A note from RRMOTORSINC:
“For those Rolls-Royce enthusiasts who have followed my auctions in the past I welcome you all. For those who are new to my adverts and/or the marque. please note that as a serious collector of some 30 years. all my cars are truly described examples. I have my own private Rolls-Royce workshop (not open to the public but dedicated to my own cars) with trained Rolls-Royce craftsmen who are proficient in all aspects. We have now exceeded 200 Rolls-Royces and Bentleys restored and sold for shipping world-wide from our current premises. As a team. we are dedicated to the preservation of the marque and as such. any car that leaves the stable is completely inspected and work-shopped to ensure mechanical and operational items are maintained appropriately. We adopt a “keep it original” mentality with pride and confidence. offering after sales technical support and assistance well beyond the sale. Because most of my cars are offered for the pleasures of driving enjoyment it is not always possible or practical to seek perfection (in the true sense of the word) but we do always uphold excellence in whatever we do. Our cars are by no means cheap priced cars but we like to think they are amongst the best. To this end. I firmly believe in the famous adage; “Quality is remembered long after the price is forgotten. ” We hope you do to. ”

* PLEASE read auction terms & conditions below BEFORE bidding **
This Rolls-Royce is part of a private collection. Although licensed and bonded. I am not a main-stream retail car dealer or broker; I am a professional car collector of some 30 years with considerable experience and knowledge of Rolls-Royce and Bentley Motor Cars. I have a long standing reputation being associated with the marque which I take seriously. I take pride in my cars and have fun in collecting and restoring them. However. auctions are not a game so when you place a bid or offer. and you are the winning bidder. please understand you have entered a binding contract. You cannot bid and win the auction and expect not to meet the terms and conditions. Bidding and/or winning does not mean you are expecting me to “hold” the car until you have the opportunity to inspect it. Any inspection contemplated should be undertaken BEFORE you bid or make an offer and I openly welcome any potential buyer to come and personally inspect the car. Once you bid or make an offer. you are doing so to buy WITHOUT conditions. Your bid can not be subject to anything. A $2000. 00 deposit (non-refundable) is required within 24 hours of the close of the auction and payable by PayPal. The balance of funds are required within 7 days of the close of the auction and must be provided by cashier's check or bank wire. I cannot accept PayPal for the balance. Full payment must be made (and payments cleared) before the title and/or the vehicle is released. All payments are non-refundable. Payments as described above form an important part of this purchase contract and so. if all the funds are not received as outlined above. I reserve the right to terminate the transaction without notice. If there has been any deposit or other part payments received and I elect to terminate the contract. I reserve the right to keep any such deposits or payments and resell the vehicle to another bidder or interested party or re-list the vehicle at any time. To be clear. if you change your mind for ANY reason and do not complete the transaction in the time-frame required. you will forfeit your deposit. I am happy to assist with shipping arrangements on a national and worldwide basis but the winning bidder takes full responsibility for pickup and/or shipping and at his cost.
As a collector and experienced restorer of the marque. I make every effort to bring my cars to a high standard. By comparison. my cars are generally superior to others available but they are by no means perfect. You must expect some issues. Unless specifically stated. the car is not of show standard but of nice "driver" condition. Please understand. show cars of this model cost hundreds of thousands of dollars to achieve and sell for prices commensurate. so the sale price of this car reflects its relative condition. You are buying "condition" accordingly. Buyers should not expect to receive concours quality or "perfect" cars at these prices. Please also understand. the very nature of these classic Rolls-Royces is such that it is not always possible to attend to every item. or perhaps I may have inadvertently overlooked items. Further. and very importantly. these cars are classic cars also because they are old. So this means a 27 year old car is predominantly comprised of 27 year old parts. And old parts will fail. All buyers must understand and expect that things can or will wear out. break and/or stop functioning without notice. This is even more likely with hand-built English cars of early technology when compared to the typical American car of the same vintage. Please note. fitted radio/stereo systems are usually subject to upgrade by purchasers so I do not ensure operation of these. Similarly. cruise control systems fitted to these classics were of an inferior design and I do not check or warrant the operation of these. Suspension and brakes on these cars are complex. We thoroughly check them and replace things that are identified faulty. But please understand. by example; if we change a brake line because it appears aged or faulty. we do NOT at the same time replace all other hoses because they are of similar age. This is considered "preventative maintenance". We do not do this unless specifically requested and is not included in the purchase price. Feel free to ask for this additional service. Further. a feature or function that is working perfectly one moment. may decide to play-up the next. After all. it is some 27 years old. This is the nature of any classic car and especially a Rolls-Royce which was very "complicated" for its era. For this reason it is necessary for the following condition:
The vehicle is being sold "as-is/where-is" with no warranty expressed. written or implied. Any descriptions or representations are made with reasonable judgment and all efforts are made to ensure fair assessment and accuracy but they are for descriptive and identification purposes only and are not to be construed as a warranty of any type. The seller shall not be responsible for errors in description. authenticity. genuineness. or defects herein and makes no warranty in connection therewith. If any aspect of the description contradicts what can be seen in the photos. then the photos shall prevail as the reference point. No allowance or set aside will be made on account of any incorrectness. unforeseen imperfection. defect or damage. It is the responsibility of the buyer to have satisfied himself as to the condition and value and to bid based upon that judgment solely. The seller shall and will make every reasonable effort to disclose any known defects at the buyer's request prior to the close of the auction. Seller assumes no responsibility for any repairs regardless of any written or oral statements about the vehicle. Being a classic car in excess of 10 years of age. in most US states. the mileage may be recorded as “exempt”. In this regard the seller makes no warranties as to the accuracy of the mileage indicated or shown. I can hold the vehicle up to 30 days while you arrange shipping but you must immediately insure it. I will not bear any responsibility for any additional costs including storage. transportation. or repair after the close of the auction. Whereas I am happy to store the car in excess of 30 days from auction end. a cost of $35 per day shall apply beyond 30 days of auction end. Also. you must remember that this is a classic +/-34 year old vehicle. and while it is up to you. I do not recommend that you just “hop in and drive it across the country”until you have familiarised yourself with the car. At least. I have never done that. I have always professionally transported the cars in enclosed carriers from where I bought them to my home.
PLEASE; IF YOU ARE UNABLE TO ABIDE BY THESE TERMS. CONTACT ME BEFORE YOU CONTEMPLATE DOING SO AS. RESPECTFULLY. THERE CAN BE NO EXCEPTIONS.
I am sorry if these terms seem harsh but there seem to be some very unrealistic buyers out there - fortunately. only few of these people exist but those that do can make life difficult. so it appears EVERYTHING needs to spelled out. Very simply put. this is an old car being offered for sale. It is not new and is subject to the perils of age. Further. Rolls-Royces are not without nuances. idiosyncrasies and they are renown for a host of design issues which can make them not inexpensive to maintain. This is well documented in many circles. You need to be a special and considerate type of purchaser to own a Rolls-Royce. Their down-side is part of the fun in owning them! As the old saying goes; "we love to hate them and hate to love them!" So. please respect the terms and conditions when you bid.
Bentley values vary wildly. entirely dependent on their condition. There are. of course. other aspects that add or subtract from their values – Long Wheel Base versus regular. the year which dictated certain technical changes. etc. The colour alone. for example can make a big difference. So for the benefit of new-comers to the marque please see the approximate guide to values based on a particular model below. Please remember. these are “plus-or-minus” figures:
Model: Mulsanne S
Show car: $50. 00+
Exceptional: $25-45. 00
Excellent: $20-25. 00
Good: $16-20. 00
Average: $14-16. 00
Fair: $10-14. 00
Basket case: < $10. 00
Hopefully this will provide a reference point for the Bentley being featured in this listing as it compares to the range of different condition examples. Please note. a very poor condition example that is tired and not maintained can easily demand some $30. 00 in restoration to make it a "nice" example but remember. it will be no longer original. So don't be fooled by "cheap buys". For any specific questions about this unique example of a Rolls-Royce. please do not hesitate to contact me.
