Happy New Years !!! I will be liquidating several classic Rolls Royce & Bentleys over the next few weeks. I've decided it's more logical to have a nice late model car (Rolls/Bentley). then a dozen classics. Although I will ALWAYS admire the classic styles and elegance these cars offer. I'd like to get a newer Bentley Arnage or Flying Spur. Dealers are encouraged to contact me.
I've added this car most recently to my collection. it was offered to me by a close friend who has been selling Rolls & Bentleys for 45+ years. He sold the car to a doctor in 1986. I'd assume the doctor used it regularly up to 1991. In 1991 the car was at "Albers Rolls Royce". now "Bentley of Zionsville" for service and as a record of that. From 1991 to NOW the car has had less than 1. 00 miles added. Yes. Sitting is NOT good for these high profile cars. A new battery was installed and it started. Later. a pair of floats were added as the originals had sank in the carbs. It was then flat bedded to a well known Chicagoland Rolls Royce facility in Cary. Illinois where the oil and filter where changed. a leaky break line was replaced. and brake pump # 1 was rebuilt. I had the car returned home and was able to ride it around the neighborhood a little bit. it has since then popped another brake line (left rear wheel). I've cleaned the car up and simply decided to sell it "as is" as I'm a little overwhelmed with many things at the moment. Every car has a story & now that you know this cars story. I welcome any calls with further questions. I can be reached @ 847-826-2584.
Chassis #: LRE23314
Body: White. free of any major damage or scratches. Light/minor surface rust on rockers (area behind front wheels) & one very small chip in the paint on the left quarter panel. The paint would buff up very nice. I believe the car to have been painted (but over 25 years ago). but still looks sharp. To those that anticipate a pebble beach quality car for less then $10000. this isn't you're lucky day. It will tidy up nicely & NOT require a repaint. Interior: Navy Blue. Still has a nice color to it and minimal wear. Still has a distinct rich smell of high quality leather. The wood is very nice too. drivers door has a few minor cracks. Carpet & headliner in above average condition. The ever flex top remains in good condition.
***The car is currently leaking brake fluid. it cannot be driven. Therefore it must be transported (I can assist with Chicago area). If you're out of state or even further. I'd suggest getting a shipping quote prior to bidding or connect with my Rolls technician to at least get the leak taken care of. I'm listing it cheap and as I said before I'm letting go of almost a dozen Rolls/Bentleys to help acquire a late model Bentley. This Rolls Royce (LRE23314) is sold "as is". ***
No reserve !!! This car will sell to the highest bidder !!!
