Description:

1958 Bentley Other Sport Saloon

I'm listing this for a friend of mine but I am familiar with the car and also a member of the Rolls Royce owners club for years. The car is located in Fresno California and is available for inspection.
The Good: Same owner since 1989. Numbers matching engine and trans. Solid rust free body. This is a real car not a basket case of bits and pieces like so many others. Other than a respray in the mid 1980's from its original shell grey, this car has never gone through a restoration. It has been repaired and maintained only as needed with typical tune up items and oil changes. Most importantly the car has been continuously driven to shows, dinner and golf and not left to suffer in long term storage like so many of these cars do. The car always starts right up and It was driven a few weeks ago to a club approx 60 miles without incident.The Bad: The car starts runs and stops but is showing its age, the 30 year old paint job is showing crazing, the interior leather is in completely original condition but very tired, wood work has never been refinished and needs it as the pictures show. However, the woodwork, leather and mechanicals have never suffered under amateur wrenching and as such it would make great restoration candidate as it has not been taken apart before.
