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. 

87.6k miles.

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.

Thank you.

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.

2014 Bentley Flying Spur makes its Swiss debut

Mon, 04 Mar 2013 20:14:00 EST

Ever since the two-door Bentley Continental GT debuted in 2010, we've wondered how the coupe's new design and technology would carry over to the four-door Flying Spur model. We received official details and images a couple of weeks ago, but we've now had the chance to see the Spur in person here on the eve of the 2013 Geneva Motor Show.
It's a handsome sedan, this 2014 Flying Spur (which has officially ditched the Continental nomenclature, for what it's worth). And even more handsome in the metal. The stock photos don't do this big beast justice - especially in the rear three-quarter and profile views, where aspects of the car (namely its newly horizontal-shaped taillamps) can look a bit awkward.
More impressively, Bentley says that the new Flying Spur will be the "fastest, most powerful four-door" it has ever produced. Makes sense to us, especially considering the fact that the sedan borrows its twin-turbocharged 6.0-liter W12 powertrain from the Continental GT Speed coupe. This twelve-pot mill is good for 616 horsepower and 590 pound-feet of torque, able to propel the 5,451-pound, all-wheel-drive sedan to 60 miles per hour in 4.3 seconds. That's quick.

Volkswagen breaks 40-year-old sales record in 2012

Sun, 13 Jan 2013 18:00:00 EST

The last time Volkswagen moved this many vehicles in America in one year, Richard Nixon was still a President in good standing, Let It Be was a radio hit and each car wearing the VW badge boasted an air-cooled engine. That's right, with a grand total of 580,286 vehicles sold in the US last year, the VW Group has broken its own four-decades-old sales record by 2,899 vehicles.
Of that 580k total sold, 438k were Volkswagens and 139k were Audi products - increases of 35.1 percent and 18.5 percent, respectively, in year-over-year sales. The ultra-premium members of the VW group also fared well; Bentley delivered 2,315 vehicles for a 23.3-precent increase, and Lamborghini delivered 520 units for a 52.9-percent jump. Bugatti, we're told is "right on track."
Jetta (pictured) sales paced the marque with 170k models sold, and Passat also finished very strong with sales of 117k total. Tiguan also racked up its best year on file, with 31,731 models shifted.

The Windsor Castle Concours d'Elegance in pictures, courtesy of Bentley

Sat, 15 Sep 2012 20:01:00 EST

Bentley went to the Windsor Castle Concours of Elegance as the main sponsor and showed off six of its best among the gathering of "60 of the finest motor cars in the world," including the 4¼-liter Bentley 'Embiricos' Special built for a Greek shipping magnate and gentleman racer in the 1930s.
Even better, for us at least, is that when Bentley decided to capture the moment it took pictures of most of the metal on the lawn, not just the Bentleys. Thanks to that, we have a high-res gallery that's home to rarities like the Vauxhall 30-98 Type OE Boattail Wensum Tourer, beauties like the Bugatti Type 57S Atalante, long-tail Ford GT40, Maserati Tipo 60 Birdcage, Aston Martin DB4GT Zagato, a sinister Ferrari 250 GTO and the even more sinister Rolls-Royce Phantom Aerodynamic Coupe, among others. All you need to do now is click and enjoy.
