1970 Bentley T1 (rolls Royce Silver Shadow), Survivor, Service History on 2040-cars
Moultonborough, New Hampshire, United States
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.

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.

Bentley doesn't do quite as many special editions for local markets as Rolls-Royce does, and when it does, they're usually based on the Continental range. But the new Shaheen edition which Bentley unveiled at the Dubai Motor Show is based on its flagship sedan, the Mulsanne.
Tue, 23 Apr 2013 10:44:00 EST
Named for and inspired by the Shaheen eagle, the special Mulsanne is distinguished by two-tone Tungsten and Onyx paint, with Magnolia and Beluga leather and dark burr walnut trim inside. It comes already upgraded to the Mulliner Driving Specification, which includes 21-inch alloys, diamond-quilted leather and adjustable suspension and steering.
Of course there are special logos inside and out, and sheikhs ponying up the unspecified premium can also opt for iPad picnic tables, onboard wifi, glass sunroof and a bottle cooler for chilling the champagne that, somewhat ironically, is haram - forbidden under Sharia law that governs many of the countries where Bentley is selling this car.
Bentley may be all hot and bothered with plans for its finally approved ultra-lux SUV, but the marque's attentions may not solely be limited to a two-box range expansion. That's according to AutoExpress, which quotes company CEO Wolfgang Schreiber as being interested in launching a 'four-door coupe' variant of its popular Continental range (pictured). According to Schrieber, "I definitely wouldn't say no to the idea... with the new Flying Spur, we have a model that supports the Mulsanne, and a coupe with four doors could sit below that."

The more rakish sedan isn't tipped to launch before 2016 - the brand will be too busy launching the Flying Spur and furthering work on the as-yet-unnamed SUV to pull ahead the project. The plan would appear to make a lot of sense, as the additional bodystyle on the back of the Continental platform would likely command more money than the rest of the line (see also: Mercedes-Benz CLS and BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe) while basically just being a new top hat on an existing architecture. This isn't the first time AutoExpress has promulgated this Bentley 4DC idea, however. Back in 2010, it offered a similar report, but at that point, it anticipated the model would be cheaper than the Continental, suggesting it would be based on a platform shared with the Audi A7.
AutoExpress notes the additional model would help Bentley achieve its ambitious sales targets to drive from last year's 8,510 units sold to 15,000 by 2018, though most of that volume still figures to come from the new utility vehicle.
Until the new Falcon sport-ute comes along, Bentley is still a brand that revolves around two model lines: the Mulsanne, which is available essentially in one form, and the Continental family, which is available in many. The Flying B marque has traditionally offered the V8 version in two specifications and the W12 in three, and packaged them into three different bodystyles. With the Geneva Motor Show fast approaching, Bentley is rolling out two more.
First up is the Flying Spur which, despite having dropped the Continental from its name, is still based on the same. Bentley opted to skip the base W12 version when it introduced the new Flying Spur at last year's Geneva show, going straight for the more powerful version that would otherwise wear the Speed moniker. But now it's bringing a V8 version to the Swiss auto expo.
In addition to the W12, the Flying Spur will now be offered with Bentley's 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8. For the time being at least, Crewe is offering it in the base, 500-horsepower spec, and not with the more potent 521-hp from the Continental GT V8 S, but we're still looking at a 0-60 time of 4.9 seconds and a top speed of 183 mph. And that's pretty fast for a four-door sedan, no matter which way you cut it. Power is channeled once again to all four wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission, riding on an air suspension. There's a Mulliner Driving Specification package to make it even more derirable, the reduced weight in the nose ought to make it handle better, and with cylinder deactivation, promises to deliver much better fuel economy.
