A very appealing, smart, correct and sound example in just the right condition to use & enjoy. Excellent paint work, in the original and very attractive shade of Dawn blue, complemented by high quality chrome plating. The original blue/grey leather interior is nicely presented, with no splits or tears, and indeed, the interior overall is very nice, with excellent headlining, carpets, etc, and the wood veneers are particularly fine. When new, as documented in the original sales details, the rear seat was converted to a fold-flat arrangement to extend the boot space to accommodate the owners salmon fishing gear! This is still a very useful feature today, adding practicality and versatility. Another unusual fitment is a map reading light on a long, flexible stalk, which clips out of the way above the nearside doors. A lovely car, driving nicely, offered serviced, prepared and newly MoT tested. Pleasingly, we have just been successful in having the original registration number, CUV 792C (as shown on the original green logbook which accompanies the car) reinstated. Also included are various invoices, letters, including one from the car's first owner, and an almost complete run of MoT certificates, starting with the first one issued to the car in 1968, right through to 2016. This run has now been added to, as the current certificate runs until January 2021. Last but not least, there is a full kit of tools in the boot-mounted tray and large tools in the spare wheel tray. Chassis No. B124GJ Reg. No.CUV 792C. Snippets: A family of Solicitors & a Code Breaker.When Anthony P. D. Hunt ordered B124GJ he had a very unusual request that as he was keen angler (fly-fishing for salmon in Scotland) that the backseat should fold down enabling his fishing rods to be accommodated as per his previous two Bentleys! The Hunt family were established solicitors in the Essex area with Anthony being the 3rd generation lawyer, the Hunt family homes included Lofts Hall, Orsett (Thomas Hunt), Hill House (Francis Hunt) and Romford Hall (Alfred Hunt). Anthony Hunt had 4 Uncles and 3 Aunties but his most illustrious Uncle was Arthur Surridge Hunt (1871/1934) a WWI code breaker and world famous papyrologist - in 1896 whilst on a dig in Oxyrhynchus, Middle Egypt with his colleague, Bernard Pyne Grenfell, found and later translated the Oxyrhynchus Papyri. Their translations revealed sales, leases, wills, bills, accounts, inventories, horoscopes, private letters & plays by Sophocles.
