Technical specifications, photos and description:
Bentley Eight for sale with a very special CHEAP number plate included in the auction for this car.
I personally bought this car a few months ago. The car had been stood up in London for a number of years without an MOT or Tax and was previously owned by a retired solicitor.
The last time it had been MOT'ed was on the 5th June 2008 (expiry '09) but with a little time and a lot of effort the car is now back to its former glory (well. it is now back on the road with a full MOT and a years tax).
The car had a Full Main Dealer history to 83K miles and then around £10. 00 of receipts from the previous owner that used a Rolls Royce and Bentley specialist in London (R. R & B Services) including £3. 00 spent in June 2008 to put it through its MOT just before she was stood up.
Since getting her back on the road I have driven about 500 miles to make sure any problems come to light and whilst there have been a number of small jobs to be done she runs very well indeed. an absolute pleasure to waft along in.
Jobs done since purchase
Service - Oil and Filter change to both the engine and the gearbox.
Rocker cover gasket replaced.
Fuel line replaced.
Power steering hose replaced.
Brake hose fix.
A lot of polishing and cleaning.
Jobs Still To Do
The front seats are both ripped and ideally need replacing (quoted £200 per side from a RR&B Spares Dealer)
The paint work is tatty in places and does need some attention.
The flying B has been broken off the front. I planned to get this repaired and then paint in Black to match the bodywork.
Overall despite being a great car. the main value I would say is in the CHEAP number plate and this would really suit a newer Rolls Royce. Bentley. Bugatti…. the list goes on. I will split the car and plate myself if it does not sell but I have been told this takes upto 6 weeks to complete and I do not really have the time to wait.
The car draws a lot of attention especially with the number plate. The number of people that have been on my tail and I have noticed them taking photos of the car. it is hilarious.
Any questions please email me and I am more than happy to send additional pictures or a video of the car on request. I will consider selling just the plate or just the car. please email me to discuss.
The winning bidder must contact me at the end of the auction and complete the transaction within 7 days. I would request that you view the car before bidding unless you are essentially just bidding for the plate and not really interested in the car. Timewasters and non paying bidders will be reported regardless of any stories 'I thought I was outbid and bought another car'. you have been warned !
Please note. I have the car advertised elsewhere and reserve the right to remove at anytime.
