You are correct, she does have the dealers sticker in the back window.

I searched long and hard for her and I think it paid off (not just going for the first one I liked).

A mate of mine who is a mechanic for bentley and used to own one himself said, that its the mintest one hes ever seen  :D

There is obviously a few little bits that i want to get done but thankfully, nothing major! Just stiching on seats and a couple of plastics  :D

Looks fantastic,  nice to see a very original black 5..  dont see many now.  I used to have one.

I plan to keep it totally standard, sort out some imperfections to the body.....got my mate who is a bentley mechanic to have a look at her with a fine tooth comb the other week. told him to tell me what needs doing or may need doing and ill just do it.....so this weekend im doing,

bottom rad hose
water pump
alternator belt
spark plugs
ht leads
passenger seat runner
front wheel bearing

im even making sure all the plastics are in place.... every last thing will be spot on and original.

most of it is only showing signs of needing repair but i want mine to be mint!!!

That is minty fresh and very inspiring. Take a little of it off clean and refurb it and put it back on, take another piece etc etc.

That's the way to do it, wish I didn't have such a scabby dog to start with :(

This black one is a peach though I'm green with envy :mrgreen:
If you know of any links to sites that have any info on the pearly ones, pm please.

That's unbelievably tidy! Do you use him a lot? I think its easier to keep a car running smoothly if it has regular use. I hope mine looks that good one day.
