Crewe, England – Bentley Motors will open its doors for a unique sale of parts and accessories for Bentley and Rolls-Royce vehicles, some dating from the 1950s, at its warehouse in Crewe, England in September.
The company will offer the parts to professional traders, vehicle owners and enthusiasts on September 26 and 27, 2009. The parts include everything from V8 engine blocks and transmissions to light bulbs or handbooks.
Bentley holds over 55,000 part lines for all Bentley models from 1955 on, and for Rolls-Royce cars built in Crewe from 1955 to 2002. The sale will enable the automaker to create additional space for parts and accessories for its upcoming vehicles.
“Even Bentley employees describe our parts and accessories operation as a ‘gold mine’ and are slightly overawed by the sheer number and variety of parts and accessories we can supply,” said Steve O’Hara, director of aftersales. “However, with so many Bentley and Rolls-Royce cars enjoying far longer lives than a typical vehicle, and owners seeking to keep them in the best possible condition, we need to be able to support these customers and many more generations of owners. We take real pride in being able to provide anything from a humble speedometer cable through to replacement body panels anywhere in the world.”
During the sale, a range of Bentley’s factory-trained experts will be on-site to provide advice on identifying and sourcing the correct parts for their cars. All items will be clearly catalogued and displayed by model type. All parts available will be original and unused, backed with a manufacturer’s warranty, and with many in branded packaging. Bentley’s official logistics partner will also attend to help customers who need their parts shipped.
