This car was sold new in England and was brought to Sweden in 1986. For the last 8 years, the car has been partially refurbished in stages step by step. Mechanically, the car is in good condition. Engine, gearbox and hydraulics work correctly, and large parts of the electrical system have been checked over. All electric widow lifts have been refurbished or serviced and are working correctly. It is the original black leather interior which now has a nice patina. The leather has been softened up with food hide to keep the patina and make sure that the leather doesn’t crack. The headlining is new and all wooden panels are refurbished.
The body has undergone major work, taking it down to bare metal, making sure everything is in order and tin plating in the correct places. The car has complete documentation of this process and there is documentation of all the workings made on the body. It is painted in British racing green and shell grey on the ceiling.
Only 98 made in a total of the Bentley 2 door coupe, and this is one of the 98 manufactured. This is a great opportunity to own a unique car that will only rise in value.
This car is located at Bernt Hansen Automobil Service in Trollhättan for a closer look and inspection.
Bentley T was produced between 1965-1980 and are the first self-supporting body that these two companies did. Aside from the driveline, it is a brand new car from the predecessor Silver Cloud and S Series. The brake and hydraulic system were very advanced and quite complicated to work with. The hydraulic system comes from Citroën, which were then developed even more to fit Rolls-Royce and Bentley standards. The early models have level control both front and rear, while the latter only have level control in the rear. Series one was manufactured from 1965-1976 and series two between 1977-1980.
