Imposing, yet understated, the unusual and attractive black paint is in outstanding condition with no crash damage, no evidence of resprays and a deep, rich gloss. Combined with the tan interior and excellent black Everflex top, this is a visually stunning automobile.
Inside, there is lush tan leather all around. There is no evidence of typical shrinking or dryness that sometimes afflicts cars from hot southern climates. The burl walnut trim features a unique maple banding and is also in fine condition, with a deep gloss and free of cracks or chips. A modern stereo head-unit is the only visible upgrade in the otherwise totally original cabin.
Buyers of this era of Bentley who know the importance of regular maintenance will be very pleased to see the recent service records for this outstanding car. Invoices for recent work include:
