"Jesmond and Gloria I happened to read some of the testimonials posted on your website and after our recent dealings feel compelled to add my two cents worth despite the fact I never usually give written testimonials other than in my work environment .Firstly I have to say that everything I have read pretty much sums up your combined service and approach to selling and buying of the classic cars you represent .Secondly having brought two cars , one sight unseen, and sold two cars in the last 12 months I can only reiterate the comments of others regarding your honesty and integrity and good communication. As for Gloria's attention to getting the logistics arranged smoothly and other follow up given the unfortunate delivery issue with one of the cars I bought, I cannot say enough and appreciate the efforts .It truly is a pleasure working with you on my NZ fleet of vehicles. Having also had the chance to meet you and spend a few hours looking at and talking classic cars during my last visit to NZ it is a pleasure to see someone else with the same passion and knowledge of classic cars .I see that your business is not just a business but is a passion to do the right thing by the people you are working with, be they buyers or sellers and also to do the right thing by the cars you sell .Given we are now working on another sell and buy opportunity I am sure we will continue to have more dealings in the future as my little fleet takes further shape Best Regards"

      You will love this Bentley for its refined, laid back nature and raw power, while your passengers will enjoy a standard of ride quality that few cars of the era can match. Essentially a re-badged Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow, the T1 differs from the Roller only in its slightly different grille and a few Bentley emblems. Inside, it's pure prestige, with the finest of leather seats, wonderfully thick carpets and more standard equipment than just about anything of a similar era. The simple styling renders this Bentley rather subtle in appearance, but its sheer size gives it an almost regal road presence. T1s and Silver Shadows enjoyed a lengthy production run, so there are plenty of them around. Buy a cared-for example, and you'll enjoy prestige classic motoring at its finest – for a fraction of what you'd pay for a modern Bentley. ABOUT THIS CAR

      • Very Original Car
      • Rare being NZ New with full history
      • Excellent Condition Throughout
      • Original Certificate Of Registration Available
      • Well serviced and maintained Vehicle mainly by Bruce Mcilroy
      • Drives smooth and feels like a proper Bentley should.

      Few cars rival the T1 for luxury at this price other than its Rolls-Royce stablemates. But don't be tempted by cars with rock-bottom price tags. The allure of a cheap Bentley may be strong, but it isn't worth it unless you have double the budget for parts and you're a dab hand with electrics, hydraulics and bodywork. It's been said before, but there really is no substitute when it comes to shopping around and paying more for a good car as in our opinion cars with paper trail and evidence of due care and attention are worth the extra money, as it's so easy to plough tens of thousands of dollars into a rough one. Paying a specialist a nominal fee for an inspection and getting involved with the club scene before you buy will pay dividends, too. Do it by the book and you'll bag one of the best British prestige cars money can buy. Car will be sold WOF'd and Registered, if sold in New Zealand. TRANSPORT / WORLDWIDE SHIPPING CAN BE ORGANISED ON THIS VEHICLE ON BUYER'S BEHALF AT BUYERS COST. Viewing is STRICTLY BY PRIOR APPOINTMENT only.
