Bentley Continental – two words that evoke thoughts of elegance, style, performance, panache, dating back decades. (Apologies to the current version carrying the Continental moniker, as it terrific too in its own way but more a daily appliance built in huge numbers as directed by bean counters and shareholders.)
We offer out of our suburban Boston showroom our superb 1987 Bentley Continental convertible with Mulliner Park Ward coachwork, coloured in Brewster Green with tan Connolly hides, deep fawn carpets and a Tan Everflex electric convertible top – “hood” for those on The Continent proper. The interior appointed with walnut dash, console and door trim veneers, electric front seats, bi-level climate control and of course cocktail requisites in both passenger and driver doors. Power comes from the iconic 6.75 litre turbocharged V8 engine making for “just enough horsepower,” mated to a 3 speed automatic transmission. Our Continental was delivered new June 17, 1987 via legendary Bentley dealer Carriage House Motor Cars Ltd in New York, New York. In 2007 an extensive marque specialist freshening was carried out whose highlights include a bare metal repainting, complete new interior, complete new convertible top and, servicing and sort of all systems, tallying nearly $120,000.00. With fewer than 500 pieces built in total of this generation Continental, and considerably more rare than its stablemate Corniche, our stunner the epitome of a true Continental.
