After being purchased by Rolls-Royce in 1931, Bentley production
was moved from London to Derby and later to Crewe. Following on
from the hugely successful series of T-series models, the next
generation of cars also proved extremely capable. The Bentley Eight
offered slight handling improvements and was so popular that sales
expanded from the original UK market to Europe and the United
States. Fuel injection and anti-lock brakes were added in 1986 with
leather upholstery and power memory seats becoming standard in
1987.

The sound example presented here is supplied in pale blue with a
matching blue leather interior. The leather itself is in excellent
condition throughout and the wood used for the dash is an elegant
ebony style. The car has had eight previous owners, the last two of
which were Stella Janes preceded by Lord Russell Janes. Their local
workshop, Windsor Garage, looked after the car during that time
with invoices available to view within the history file. An MoT
test certificate is also supplied, valid until May 2017, with the
owner's manual and service history (last service 1,600 miles ago).
Two Avon Turbospeed tyres have been supplied to the rear ensuring a
straight and true ride as well as ice-cold air-conditioning and a
Panasonic hifi with six-CD interchanger; this gentleman's express
is offered at no reserve and sports supremely understated
elegance.
