**SOLD** 1996 Bentley Brooklands


1996 Bentley Brooklands 

It makes such a pleasant change when a really nice example of a car arrives with us. This make & model tend to be disappointing to say the least. Even before I got close to this one I knew it would be good. (When you handle so many vehicles each year, you form an opinion as you walk towards a car, rarely are you wrong!) Open the door and sit inside and your thoughts are confirmed. It's lovely. 

An impressive history file accompanies the car. A few important points are noted below.

The original build, construction and test records have been preserved in a separate folder. Around 40 sheets of paperwork recording the whole build process.

We then have a written statement from the original owner stating that he purchased the car from 'Henleys of Chester' and collected the car direct from the Bentley factory in Crewe, Cheshire. During his 19 year ownership he states that the car covered 2,900 miles. (Yes. Two thousand nine hundred)  

The car has had Two former keepers and was last service at 19,444 miles in February this year by a Rolls Royce & Bentley specialist. Also just prior to this the power steering rack and power steering pump have been replaced at a cost of £2910.80. 

The folder mentioned above also contains previously issued MOT test certificates, together with a full itinerary of MOT test dates and the recorded mileages at this point. Some mileage increases were as low as 25 miles between MOT test dates.

We have the original leather vehicle wallet, Bentley motor cars handbook, together with the extra Green 'Brooklands' handbook associated with this model.

In addition to the service invoices supplied we have the following services recorded in the service booklet.

  • 471 Miles @ 21/04/97 Stratton Motor Company
  • 949 Miles @ 21/10/97 Stratton Motor Company
  • 1280 Miles @  03/06/98 Stratton Motor Company

  • 2840 Miles @ 23/05/13 Bentley Specialist
