Description

The Bentley T1 was a Bentley badged version of the Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow, differing from it’s Rolls Royce counterpart by it’s more rounded front grill, and Bentley motif badging throughout. It’s price also undercut the Rolls-Royce by £50, designed to be sold to owners wanting an understated luxury saloon.

With only 1,703 saloons produced compared to over ten times that number of Shadows, the Bentley could be considered more exclusive.

The car for sale here was first registered in December 1968 to a Mr Frederick Peter S Stammers of Chelsworth, Ipwsich. Mr Stammers was the keeper of the car, until 1977 when it was passed on the ownership of Mr Thomas Richardson K Raitt. It passed through two more owners until being bought in 1988, after going through a minor road test at 56,279 miles with P&A Wood, who carried out work totalling £2,257.04. The car was then sold to the current owner in the late 1990’s, and comes with a large history file.  Finished in deep burgundy, with a grey leather interior and walnut dash.
