My beautiful powder blue Bentley Continental Convertible is for sale. I purchased it from Frank Dale in July 2013 and they have maintained it meticulously since then, servicing it every year with additional work as required. Finished in my favourite combination of powder blue with cream leather and blue piping, this car creates an aura of understated elegance wherever she goes. The dark blue mohair hood was replaced just before I bought it and looks brand new. The car was resprayed (powder blue, original colour) in 2013. She has been used on an annual European tour most years since 2013, completely trouble free, and has covered only 46,000 miles since new. This model is rapidly becoming a modern collector's car, with values on the increase because of its rarity. The Bentley represents an excellent investment, as well as being a motor car in which to enjoy wonderful top down wafting in the spring and summer. The hood mechanism is wonderfully easy and quick to use, with powerful motors to raise and lower it in seconds. The condition of this car is excellent for its age, having been resprayed, having a new hood and maintained with no expense spared. The leather seats show some signs of age-appropriate wear and could be reconditioned, although I like the patina of age. There is no rust whatsoever. The car has been kept garaged since I purchased it, and has rarely been used in wet weather, having been driven in the spring and summer months. She has been stored and covered in the winter. Three rear seat belts were fitted when I bought her as these were not standard, for the safety of rear passengers. She comes with a full tool kit and a complete service history from Bentley or specialist dealers, the last decade at Frank Dale. She is equipped with a modern DVD player and digital radio, and an electric retractable aerial. Works done by Frank Dale during my ownership include: repair of the air conditioning (which works superbly, we have used it in the north Italian summer heat in great comfort), new rear gas springs, front suspension camber bushes, new washer pump, new wiper motor assembly, new temperature gauge transmitter, new front pads and discs, new rear differential seals, cleaning and tightening of gearbox, engine and ditributor valves. MOT until June 2019. Tyres are part worn with one new tyre. She is oil tight, and will cruise comfortably at 80mph all day. We made Baden-Baden comfortably in a single day in 2014, and drove it over the Timmelsjoch Pass in the Austrian Alps into Italy the following day. I shall be very sorry to see this beautiful car go, and I hope the buyer will treasure it as an appreciating classic. To be sold with a box of useful touring spares supplied by Frank Dale, the cream tonneau hood, and a Frank Dale black soft car cover.
