Story and History

1981 Bentley T2
Restored Condition
Known to us for 40 years

Our personal T2 for the last 2 years and one we have known since the very early 1980's, as she was owned by a near neighbour in period and serviced by our friends at Official Bentley dealers, Hadley Green Garage during the same period

Thereafter we purchased her directly from the original owners in 1990 at Jack Barclay Ltd when the mileage was at 38.000 at which point we sold her to the well known Gerald Capps Esq

We have a full list owners thereafter, including a period of 10 years with Charles Delevigne (the father of the famous Super Model Cara)

During our custodianship we have more or less restored her, including a complete strip and repaint, extensive mechanical works too with an engine rebuild, new radiator, water pump, extra cooling electric fan, air conditioning compressor, Avon 235/70 white wall tyres, accumulators whilst the interior has been refurbished too

All leather has been restored by an ex-specialist from Connolly Brothers, both front door veneers have been repolished, again this time by an ex-employee of R-RMC London, (where he made the veneers for new Phantom limousines) whilst the original stereo has been replaced by an Alpine Apple Car Play system with touch screen & Blue Tooth

The badge bar has been decorated (those we will keep for the next T2), the D posts have Bentley 1/4 badges fitted and the wheel valves have the Bentley B logo fitted too

As a final hurrah the fine lines (painted by hand in our own Garages) were finished in Tudor red, giving us what we believe is the nicest T2 we have ever owned (and we've had a few)

As a later version she is one of the last produced and looks quite stunning with sundym glass all around and a period feature would have been the locking wheel discs

Both large and small tools are present as well as a battery cut-out switch fitted in the boot for longer term storage if required

With just a handful of miles left to complete her running in period from the engine rebuild (984 miles covered so far) she only needs a quick oil and filter change before she can be enjoyed by her lucky next custodian

She drives superbly and having used her on a every day basis, we can confirm she really is a honey
