This is a most desirable chrome bumper era Bentley T, finished in beautiful Dawn blue with gold fine lines to the body waist-lines and hub-cap beauty rings. The Connolly interior is finished in an elegant mid grey-with a lighter grey floor rugs and moutons. The colour ensemble is very classic. The Bentley T ("T1 ") is the rare derivative of the Silver Shadow. It was the twin sister to the Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow and is differentiated by a Bentley radiator grille, mascot and "Flying B". It has a slightly lower bonnet (hood) with different shaping in the sheet metal and is distinguished further with “Bentley” hubcaps and boot badging. Unique to these earlier Bentleys, is the fitment of "B" logos on the speedometer and brake pedal (a nice touch - something that was sadly deleted by Rolls-Royce in later years). Out of some 32,000 4 door Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow sedans produced, only 1,700 of these were Bentley Ts (that is only some 5% of the model series). Take into account that the number of remaining survivors would be considerably less and discount further those that are in poor condition, then this T1 Bentley may well be 1 out of only a few dozen examples in the US in this very fine condition. The exterior presentation of this Bentley T is simply lovely. The body is exceptionally straight and the paint is of a good level of presentation. It was repainted in its original factory colour some 15 years ago.  There are barely even the tiniest and minor little marks here and there so she presents beautifully and without issues. The paint finish is overall completely consistent, very shiny and deep lustered. From a driver perspective, she is 10-out-of-10. The interior of the car is in stunning presentation. The African burl walnut wood is lovely. All the wood, dash, console, door cappings and vanity mirrors are in excellent condition and appear to have been redone at some point. Perhaps when the car was repainted. The rest of the interior is very clean and tidy and requires no attention. And speaking of "patina", the Connolly hide leather is superb showing just the right amount. There are definitely no tears or unsightly scratches or marks and it all remains soft and supple. There is some beautiful "hand-wear" and sign of use that makes all the seats look like a gorgeous well-kept antique Chesterfield couch. Have a close look at the driver seat, the way the colour has burnished over the years - simply delicious. On this point of patina, if you are the sort of person that likes the seats to look like brand new, please do not ask as to refinish them as we believe what we have here is stunning. We have clients that would pay us their weight in salt to have new leather be finished like this so we could not bear to lose this!  The headliner is very clean and in perfect original condition. The dash board and rear parcel shelf are factory excellent. Carpets are clean and tidy and the trunk is pretty much close to perfect! All interior features and functions are fully operational including all electrics – seats, windows and gauges. The heater is hot and A/C blowing icy cold. Mechanically, the car is in superior condition and the presentation under the bonnet clearly shows that. It has not been “done-up” for sale but maintained in original condition which is very impressive for the age of the car. The car has been recently serviced. All hydraulics and brakes have been regularly serviced and recently inspected, pressure tested, bled and working perfectly.  As expected of a fine example, the car comes with its correct jack, tools and operating manual. At some 33,000 miles, the mileage is not verifiable but the current condition makes it look exactly that.
