The Bentley T series was announced and displayed for the first time at the Paris Motor Show on the 5th October 1965. Production of the T2 only ran for three years from 1977 to 1980 and only 568 were built, 10 being long wheel base versions. As a result of the low production, these cars are today quite rare and often very good examples are hard to find. The Bentley T2 is a highly desirable car and we are pleased to own this stunning example for the second time. We sold the car in 1998 and know the car has spent the last fourteen years with one owner in and around the Robin Hoods Bay area. The Bentley has covered 98,300 miles from new and has covered 19,000 miles since 1993. The last owner has covered over 8000 miles in the car.
Since 1998 the Bentley has had in the region of £15,000 spent on improvements and between 1988 and 1991 invoices in the comprehensive history file total over £5000. We know the car has been superbly maintained over the recent fourteen year ownership period and receipts for all work are with the car. Expenditure includes new tyres (2011), new exhaust down pipe, re-conditioned steering rack, new torque arm mountings, new power steering pressure hose, re-conditioned brake accumulators, renewed height control pipes, re-conditioned brake callipers, handbrake shoes and pads, rear brake pads, renewed brake pads, brake pump seals, rear axle mountings, front suspension compliant mountings, new rocker cover and sump gaskets, overhauled carburettors, new hoses, re-conditioned starter motor, Luminition system, regular servicing and bodywork to include new sills and rear wheel arch sections.
Today the Bentley presents well with lovely Champagne paintwork and original velour upholstery. The bodywork is beautifully straight with an excellent paint finish and all four wheel arches are in excellent condition. The original velour seats are in nicely aged condition and within our sale price the door cappings will be re-veneered. The Bentley has driven to us from Robin Hoods bay on at least two occasions this year and it performs very well. The engine runs beautifully, the gear changes are perfectly smooth and the car handles and brakes superbly. The Bentley will be freshly serviced and supplied with a full 12 months MOT when sold.
Overall a very useable, smartly presented and original Bentley T2 that has had serious expenditure over the last fourteen years.
