I am selling my 1996 Bentley Brooklands from my personal collection that is simply in fantastic condition!! I have the clean clear title in hand. It is a Florida / Mossuri vehicle that has been garage kept, and pampered. Never exposed to salt. I will provide a very detailed description of this car from top to bottom. I have owned 10 Rolls Royce/Bentley cars since I buy, sell and collect Special Interest cars for a living. I am able to provide educated information to you about my Bentley. I have been around the Rolls Royce/Bentley Club since I was young and I know my car inside and out. I just went to the Rolls Royce / Bentley spring brunch as well as the Tech. Session where you will see some of our crew. My feedback shows you will be able to trust my information provided.
The car is ready to be enjoyed and you will not believe the positive attention this Bentley gets. 1997 was the last of Crew built Bentleys before BMW took over. Most people like the 199, 1997,1998 because it's the most modern and refined version.
The brakes have nice pads on all 6 calipers with no pulsation from the 4 rotors. The fluid is bright green as it should be. This 6.75 V-8 motor runsjust as it should. Starts right up with no hesitation or smoking. It runs smoothly. It has plenty of horse power and torque.The motor stays at the proper operating temperature and has nice oil pressure. No leaking or smells from the motor or transmission. No smoke from the tail pipe. The transmission shifts through all of the gears so nice. The suspension feels very nice. Steering is great. The steering rack has been done recently so no leaks there either. The exhaust is great from front to back. Brand new Vogue tires (200 miles total) are put on the factory chrome wheels. The wheel weights are all on the inside. The wheels have no curb rash, are mirror shiny and spin true on the balancer. I even detailed the inside of the wheels as well. The center caps have plastic covers that come off for access to the locks for the center caps. I have the key for them.
Important! There are factory electrical modules that contain rechargeable batteries to store settings that over time leak and ruin the modules. All of these (4 modules in total) have been retrofitted to modern rechargeable batteries. To make this job easy in the future wires from the modules are run to the panel under the steering wheel where the new battery packs are now. Simple to change in the future. ALL of these Rolls Royce / Bentley cars have leaking batteries in 4 separate modules due to age only and will cause expensive, complicated issues that are going to happen if not addressed like mine. Every single screw, washer, ect has been properly assembled since they were all marked in separate zip lock bags and pictures were taken along the way to ensure all went back as factory. Last year I had a trouble code stored in my computer. I changed the crankshaft and camshaft sensors and now my car has no codes or incomplete monitors that would indicate problems. No check engine light, ABS or any other trouble lights. I just put in new accumulators to keep the ride height correct in back. The dated radio and old speakers were all refreshed with a new stereo system. The Kenwood Radio has bluetooth, USB, remote and it works great. I installed LED courtesy lights inside illuminate the interior like daylight at night. These projects were all done over our 6 month NY winter. The power windows, power locks, cruise control, lights, horn, emergency brake, ect all work.
You will see that my air conditioning is showing minus 7.9 at the vent!! The heat works great as well. The air comes out where selected and the automatic climate control part works properly. This car has no evidence of an accident or rust repair. The paint is brilliant as you will see. It was a Pearl Red metallic outside and Parchment with St. James Red piping. The leather in this car is gorgeous!!! It has the fragrance of leather that you smell the second you open the door! You won't believe it! The wood is absolutely PERFECT!!! No cracks or fade at all!! The carpets including the factory floor mats are so nice and clean. The trunk is spotless clean with a leather scent like the interior. The spare tire is a factory full size never used. Heated seats have 2 settings and they get nice and hot. It has a factory cover and straps to pull it out. This car has the full tool kit, jack, spare fluid, books, 2 working factory key fobs, 4 keys and a spotless title in hand with no liens.
There are some flaws since it is 22 years old. The rear bumper trim paint on a section has lifted off the stainless steel trim. The gas door has a ding. On the corner of the rear window trim on the left side down low there is a rust bubble the size of a pencil eraser. At them bottom of the front bumper cover there's a crack but is not very noticeable. The passenger seat is not moving all ways from one of the old batteries (now replaced) leaking on the circuit.
