Ebay Description:

FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION I HAVE FOR SALE A UNIQUE REPLICA OF A 1930 BENTLEY CONVERTIBLE. THIS CAR HAS CHARACTOR: The British green paint is the perfect color for the car, being a convertible doesn’t hurt a thing, the brown interior goes right with the paint, a car like this had to have wide white-wall tires mounted on real wire rims, the spare mounted on the side is way cool, the fog lights and dual horns look great, the running boards go perfect with the long nose and narrow fenders. I go to lots of big car shows and see lots of replica cars, but I have never seen a 1930 Bentley convertible. This car has plenty of power at highway speeds, its built on a 1967 VW chassis, sure this isn't a muscle car, but it has plenty of power to flow with the traffic and be safe. The VWs are used for many replica cars because they are priced reasonable, they are very reliable , you can buy mechanical parts at your local parts store and they are very easy to work on.

I WILL TELL YOU WHO I AM, THE GOOD--THE BAD--AND THE UGLY ABOUT THIS CAR-- I WILL TELL YOU WHERE THE CAR IS LOCATED! PLEASE COME LOOK! BE HAPPY WITH WHAT YOU BUY!!!!!!!!!

MECHANICAL: The chassis is a 1967 VW. The engine has been rebuilt and has plenty of power, it’s a 4 cylinder and is very reliable with no blue smoke and no rattles (I was told it was a 1600CC). Past owner just had a new valve job, new gaskets, but this is a VW it has some drops under it when parked, tune up and carburetor rebuilt “it runs great” The transmission is a 4 speed manual shift, it shifts very good and has no whines or growls. The brakes and steering are stock VW and in good condition. Brakes are about 5/8s pedal, works fine for me.

LIGHTS: The turn signals work, head lights work, tail lights and fog lights work. The inside turn signal indicators do not work.

SPEEDOMETER AND WIPERs WORK!

DUAL HORNS: They have the nostalgic sound and look, they have the UHOO---GA sound.

WHEELS AND TIRES: I think the wire wheels are old Ford Model A. The tires are good and have wide white side walls.

GAUGES: Oil pressure and amp gauge are mounted in the dash and work. The gas gauge does not work. The gas tank is fabricated to fit just this car and has no sending unit. You could pull it and install a VW sending unit because a gauge is mounted in the speedometer cluster. The gas tank fill neck is the radiator cap, I just look down straight into the tank and see how much fuel is in the tank. The cap have a fake temp gauge built in “a real cool feature”.

BODY: Very thick fiberglass and not cracked up.

PAINT: Decent and very serviceable paint. It has character, its not the perfect/pristine paint like on a $60,000 show car. It is dulling a little in places, it has some touched up chips, but no dents and of course no rust. Several places on the edge of the panels have touched up chips. The paint shines OK, but lots of waxing would help some of the dull places. Under close inspection on the hood you can see the faint letters 1930 BENTLEY, its sort of like ghost flames, my son thinks its cool and I don’t have a problem with it. The paint is plenty good for this car ,its just not show car quality, its makes the car believable.

BRIGHT WORK: Bumpers have a good shine and not peeling or rusty, but have some tiny pits. Grill shell shines very good, but has a couple of tiny cracks, headlight housing have been painted, hubcaps are painted.

INTERIOR: Decent interior, some corners are worn and it is dull in places.

TOP: Top is very usable, but is old, it has a couple of small tears. It was rolled up loose in my pictures, it could use 2 straps, one on each side to make it roll a little neater. No back window and no side curtains come with the car.

UNDERSIDE: Not detailed for show, but no rust problems.

TITLE: Car is titled as a 1930 Bentley, I have the clear Tennessee title in hand.
