Amazing to find such a wonderful, unmolested example

A very early Continental version, which superseded the Bentley Corniche, a model run from 1971 - 1984 with total production being only 77 as DHC

So unusual are these, the first of this version of the Continental's, that the instruction manual is still the Corniche edition and titled as such

They are exceedingly unusual as the model year cars for 1986 were fitted with EFi and alloy wheels changing not just the look but also the manner in which they drove - the EFi, especially early versions, were far less refined than the, by now very well sorted, carburettor examples

Our Georgian Silver baby was supplied by Gaulds of Glasgow, as their own demonstrator on 24th January 1985, having been manufactured at the back end of 1984 - the first private owner took delivery the very next day, the 25th January

One can only assume that either, Gaulds self registered to take advantage of some extra margin, or that Mr Tricerri of Gleneagles Village saw the Bentley in the showrooms on the day that it was first registered and insisted on buying it there and then

Either way he loved the Bentley and kept her until 2007 when the second private owner took possession at 7.500 miles covered - a total of only 4 private owners now for this gem, the last two being well known celebrities who love their classic cars

As you would expect the original book pack is present with instruction manual and service history booklet, many old MoT's and various invoices for works carried out recently - including a new set of the correct factory specification Avon tyres and a complete new hood in mohair with a matching hood bag by our chums at Frank Dales

She is in simply magnificent condition and to use an often heard expression, really is a "time warp", just like going back to Gaulds' Showrooms, in the glamorously named, Mosspark Boulevard, when this car was nearly new

Supplied with and still retaining the original lambswool over rugs, all large and small tools too, the correct factory Blaupunkt radio / cassette player, flying 'B' mascot and even cocktail requisites to both front doors

A really top specification in her day, this Continental can hold her head up in any modern company, such is the quality of build in those days and the remarkable way she has been kept over the years

So rare are these carburettor Continental's that this is the first I have come across for 20 years - and then to find one in superb colours and with just 11.500 miles since new ......... heaven, pure heaven
