Technical specifications, photos and description:
The Bentley T-Series was the Bentley badged version of the
Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow. available as a four or two door saloon
with coachwork by James Young or Mulliner Park Ward. The Bentley
differed from its Rolls-Royce equivalent by its more rounded front
grill. while the badging on the wheel covers. boot lid and gauges
naturally featured Bentley motifs rather than the Rolls-Royce
logo. In October 1966. the 'T' saloon's pre-tax 'list price'
of £5. 75 undercut the Rolls-Royce by £50. The Bentley was
technically an identical twin of the Rolls-Royce and seemed to have
been purchased mostly by owners wishing for a more understated
luxury saloon. The former sporting image of Bentley motor cars
differing from Rolls-Royces had gone by the time the Silver
Shadow/Bentley 'T' was introduced and this was no longer a primary
reason to purchase a Bentley over the Rolls-Royce sibling.
A Bentley TI is a rare car today with only 1. 03 units
manufactured in the production run from 1965 to 1977 and. as seen
by the chassis number. this Bentley is late in the production run.
This car was originally supplied by the Heron group in Halesowen. br/>to Mr. John Orchard of The Bright Steel Co. Ltd. in Tipton. br/>Staffordshire. This Bentley was maintained and serviced within the
franchise until 2000 when it appeared at Lex in Weybridge; since
then the car has been maintained by marque specialists. The history
and recent MoT test certificates would indicate the mileage of
94. 23 to be correct. Supplied with a V5 registration document and
a full year's MoT test certificate. it is finished in two-tone
pewter over Moorland with beige trim. This TI is in need of a
little time and investment but is certain to bring pleasure to the
new owner as well as becoming a rising asset.
