1988 'F' Bentley Eight, 2 owners, Bentley service
history, exceptional provenance
This is a superb 2 owner example which has
only ever been serviced at Bentley. Available through bereavement, the car has
covered just 57,000 miles with Bentley main dealer service history, the
service records detailing previous maintenance at 3027, 6057, 10142,
13445, 17385, 24249, 28397, 30492, 33938, 38901, 42455, 45249, 48549,
51918, 53030, 54376 and 55127 miles, all services having been carried out
by Bentley which is exceptionally rare on vehicles this age. In addition to the stamped service book we have a collection
of old MOT's for the vehicle and MOT history from VOSA.
Purchased in 1991 by an elderly gentleman from
the original owner with just 13,000 miles, the car was retained by the
gentleman until his passing in 2006. Upon his passing ownership was
transferred to the gentleman's daughter who retained the car as a memento
of her father, only recently making the decision to part with the car.
During her tenure the lady kept the car MOT'd and had servicing
attended to and covered less than 2000 miles in the last ten years.
We collected this car from the owner's rural
home where we were made most welcome. On inspection the engine oil was
spotlessly clean and the car started instantaneously, settling down to a
smooth idle. On test drive the car
performed faultlessly with a smooth gearchange, seamless power delivery,
well controlled ride, excellent braking and no slop in the steering. We
drove the car almost 200 miles back to our premises, the car cruising
effortlessly on the motorway, an absolute pleasure to be at the controls.
The condition of the car
is quite exceptional, head and shoulders above any other example you are
likely to see with bodywork, interior and woodwork in
excellent order, the car belies it's almost 30 years of age showing minimal
signs of use, all very attractive indeed.
Finished in striking
Vermillion which looks absolutely stunning, the interior is trimmed in
cream hide piped red with red top roll, cream bottom roll and red
carpets which are protected by red lambs wool over rugs. The rugs have
faded somewhat over the years but have protected the carpets well. The rear
compartment is equipped with footstools and reading lights. This car
benefits from the Mulsanne chrome grille with flying "B" emblem.
