1968 Bentley T1 Saloon for sale
Current customer rating: (35 votes) based on
Predating Bentley's 1980s resurgence. the T1 was produced in far
fewer numbers than the equivalent Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow. the
ratio being 11:1 in the Shadow's favour and is considerably rarer
today. On the road. the T-Series afforded its owners the advantage
of an eye-line higher than that of most other cars giving its
occupants a commanding view of their surroundings while
electrically adjustable seats ensured unrivalled comfort. Summing
up the ownership experience in 1989. 'Classic & Sportscar'
observed: 'There's plenty of pleasure to be had from driving a
Silver Shadow or T1. probably at town speeds more than anything.
You learn to cope with its size very quickly. It soothes its driver
like no other car. '
This extremely well presented example benefits from a full file
of all its construction and test records supplied from the
Rolls-Royce Enthusiasts' Club. It was originally sold through Jack
Barclay in London to John King of Melton Mowbray. With just three
previous owners since then. it was sourced from Ireland by its
current keeper in a less than perfect state. It then benefitted
from restorative work to include completely new sills and wheel
arches. a full tip-to-toe re-paint in the original Velvet Green
colour and renovated door-cappings and dash. The interior retains
the correct picnic tables and foot rests as well as the original
patina sometimes lost with less sympathetic restorations. A fresh
12 month MoT test certificate and recent service is also supplied
with this most elegant of Bentleys.
