What makes this model unique

- All distinguishing marks of the Bentley T2
- The distinguishing marks of the Long Wheelbase: lengthening with 4 inches, lengthened rear door, smaller rear window, everflex covered roof, but in the contrary to the Silver Wraith II without a badge on the C-pillar
- The same wheel covers as the Corniche
- Identification plate "BENTLEY T2" on the boot lid; so you can't see here that the car is a Long Wheelbase

 

Further details and special features

- The same characteristics as to the Bentley T2
- (There has been no Anniversary model of the Bentley T2 Long Wheelbase)



The Bentley T2 Long Wheelbase as well as the Bentley T Long Wheelbase can't be recognised as a Long Wheelbase on the front side. Only the wheel covers betray that it deals with a Long Wheelbase. The everflex covered roof is standard on the Long Wheelbase.
Picture: the LBH37830 from 1979.



The lengthening of 4 inches benefits only the rear passengers and is visible on the lengthened rear doors.
