1985 Bentley Continental Convertible.
Vin Number: SCBZD0009FCH09440
Registration Number: B107FGTa
Rare & beautiful. This is one of the first cars built to continental specification after the Corniche name was dropped for these convertible Bentleys. Moreover it was the Birmingham Motor Show car for Rolls Royce at the time.
The car comes to us with a simply massive set of invoices in a very very thick file. The servicing expenditure over the years has been huge & done without regards to cost by assorted speciaiasts including Clarke & Carter & Royce engineering more latterly. We have only photographed a small portion of the bills that come with the car.
Finished in Royal Blue the car presents beautifully. It has always been garage kept & has not been used in inclement weather at least for the last 10 years of onwership. Current mileage is just 75,000 from new backed up by service history & MOT certificates. To the interior is piped cream leather & burr Walnut to the dash board. A drinks flask & glasses are located in a lockable cubby hole in the Drivers door.
The roof is of Blue Mohair & glides up & down at the touch of a button. Under the bonnet the engine bay is pristine with all nuts & bolts on ths suspension towers looking like new with no furring or corrosion whatsoever. The original leather hood bag comes with the car & fits easily & snugly over the hood.
These continentals are rare birds with only a little over 400 units having been produced making them far more scarce then the far more prolific Rolls Royce Corniche equivalent. It is a car ready for immediate use & wanting for nothing. On the road it drives beautifully with ample power & smooth imperceptible gear changes allied to supple suspension. The huge history file promises for trouble free motoring for the next lucky onwer.
