~ What John Cleese says about his car ~

‘Twenty-five years on it is a little faded, and needs some TLC to restore to its natural beauty including
some attention to the battle scars from a quarrel with a gate post the last time I drove it but it remains
a fabulous car to drive and is the most beautiful car I have ever owned. It’s like driving a Starfighter.
It has been utterly reliable and it also removed any sense of haste from my life. You don’t drive it,
you guide it. Yet, if you need a moment of acceleration, the power surges like a battleship’.

 ~ Car facts & figures ~

Current Mileage : 73505
MOT Expiry: November 2013
Tax Expiry: March 2013
Last Service: December 2011

Service History: Last serviced in December 2011 with supporting paperwork however the book is last stamped by 'Silver Lady Bentley and Rolls Royce of South Ruislip' with a service date of 23rd March 1999 and mileage of 64596. Service stamp prior to this is 1991 and mileage of 37800 by Jack Barclay.

 ~ General Condition ~

Mechanically the car is in excellent condition and runs beautifully and has just sailed through a November MOT.  The interior has been well looked after although half of the veneer is missing from the top of both rear door panels. Outside the car does need a little TLC. It has the previously mentioned scrape to 3 panels on the near side, some cracking to the paintwork where the roof meets the OSR pillar and some chipped paint in various spots with the largest on the NSR pillar. Nothing though too serious.

 ~ Car location ~

The car is currently in storage in the UK and can be viewed in Kent by prior arrangement.
