1969 Bentley T1 Extremely nice * 10 times more rare than Silver Shadow * RARE! for sale
1969 Bentley T1
This is a very rare and beautiful Bentley
In my opinion this is the Best Buy on a Bentley T1 in this condition by far!
I do not have the capability to add the huge photos but I assure you this is a Very Nice "T"
"This in my opinion. is one of the nicest "original" Bentley T1s available "
Do not compare this car with many of the ones you have seen in the past. Cars that have not been maintained. ideous color/options. usty examples. bad suspension/hydraulics. nteriors that will cost you an arm and a leg. etc. Buy one of those and see how that works out. This is a nice Bentley and will only go up in value. as they are horribly undervalued now.
This is a very handsome Bentley T saloon finished in the combination of Burgundy over Sand. The Original Interior is simply stunning with Scarlet Red hides. She is protected with chrome bumpers which are much more pleasing than the rubber bumper cars. This is historically important and makes her quite collectable.
The Bentley T ("T1 ") is the rare derivative of the Silver Shadow. It was the twin sister to the Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow and is differentiated by a Bentley radiator grille. mascot and "Flying B". It has a slightly lower bonnet (hood) with different shaping in the sheet metal and is distinguished further with “Bentley” hubcaps and boot badge. Unique to these earlier Bentleys. is the fitment of "B" logos on the speedometer and brake pedal (a nice touch - something that was sadly deleted by Rolls-Royce in later years). Out of some 32. 00 4 door Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow sedans produced. only 1. 00 of these were Bentley Ts (that is only some 5% of the model series).
Less than a third of these were exported to the US. so this is 1 car out of some 550 rare examples! Take into account that the number of remaining survivors would be considerably less. and *discount further those that are in poor condition*. then this T1 Bentley may well be 1 out of only a small percentage of the examples in the US in this very fine condition.
This gorgeous "T" has had over $15. 00. 00 spent on keeping her in great mechanical condition since 2005. I will give the receipts to the next lucky owner. The paint is an older repaint. with some flaws. but it still looks nice as you can see. This is the only weak spot on this car. and "lets get real. it is over 40 years old!"
The Italian burl walnut wood is outstanding! The dash. console. top-roll dash-pad finisher. all 4 doors and rear vanity mirrors look gorgeous! The finish on the wood throughout is simply stunning.
The leather is very nice and presents beautifully. The carpets are the original factory Wilton wool. The headlining in the car is in great condition as is all glass and interior finishes. The rear parcel shelf is in fine original condition.
Mechanically. this T is a very fine example. The Air conditioning blows cold. The engine is smooth and quiet and the steering light but tight. Important costly items such as the hydraulics and brakes work very well! It is ready to drive and enjoy.
This Bentley T drives particularly well. considerably quieter and smoother than you would normally expect for any other T or Shadow of this era. Mileage is accurate. The white-wall tires are in very good condition. although their age is unknown.
I also have the Factory Tool Kit. and Owners Manual.
"Only If the Buy It Now price is met". I will also include extremely rare and expensive. nbsp; "5 volume set of "Factory Workshop Manuals" !!!!!!!
This Bentley T is a rare find in this condition. In addition. she is one of those hard-to-find examples where a considerable amount of money has been spent on keeping her in great condition. Either as a serious collector or enthusiast. this car is a great buy and she will only go up in value. This one is ready to enjoy. Please be respectful in making an offer.
Please ask questions "before bidding" I will be glad to go over the car with you. if you have an interest. "I believe It is one of the best Bentley T1s left"
******* I am open to any reasonable offer *******
