1970 T1 Bentley in excellent original condition. One of handful T1's brought into the USA- This is a Bentley, made on the Rolls Royce platform.
This car is absolutely beautiful and and is in great condition. Interior is fresh and very well preserved.
Interior is very fresh with no rips, tears or stains. It smells very nice, with a fresh smell of leather and almost a new car smell.
Runs, drives, shifts very nicely. I am confident driving this car on a long road trip.
Breaks have excellent pressure and the car stops very well.
Paint, interior, and trim appear look great.
Extensive service records dating back 30 years (please see pictures of the file).
The Rolls Royce historical archives has 50 pages of documentation on the car, stated as:
'Originally Black, Cherry Red Carpet, Deep Red Fine Lines.' It is my belief that this car has never been altered and that all of the paint is in its original color combination consistent with the history of the car.
Dash is nearly perfect.
Wood veneer is slightly chipped on the drivers side door, other areas are in very good condition.
Seats look and smell great, no tears or stains.
Headliner is original (wool) and has one small blemish about the size of 1/3 of a finger tip.
There are several very slight door dings that could be dealt with by a dent doctor.
Absolutely no rust or evidence of rust repair, undercarriage is excellent.
Piping under the car is nice an no unusual corrosion of any sorts that I can see.
Original tools and manuals complete the package of originality.
I have every service record going back to 1973 organized in sequence, notes from the previous owner, finance bank note pay-off from the 70's, bill of sales from the 80's, titles and registrations from the previous owners, brochures, and manuals. This is a very well documented automobile.
Please see the service record photo that I believe to be the 1st servicing from 1973.

I received a question for more details of the mechanics of the car:
The car is mechanically in great working order. A/C needs charge. I have been using the car regularly to events and dinners out with my wife without issues. Little things about the car that make it nice are that all lights, electronics-overhead lights, trunk lights, door lights, map light, windows, heat, fans are working...Hydraulics were done by RR dealer within 5k miles, and the car has every receipt from 40 years of proper care resulting in a very mechanically sound vehicle.
If you have 'zero feedback' please contact/communicate with me.

An Ebay member thinking about bidding asked about the paint and one of the photos showing a reflection. That is a reflection on the passenger door/fender, not a major blemish as questioned. The sun was setting in that direction of the car as I took the photo. Pictures on the link will show that side of the car without a reflection.
