Every year, dozens of Sebring convertibles are sacrificed on the altar known as the aftermarket industry, all in the name of Bentley and the replica world that has found a new star child in Chrysler’s unloved
bar of soap drop-top.
Squash your eyes and jiggle your nose from a distance, and you just might trick yourself into thinking that it’s a real first generation Bentley Continental GT. But come closer to the light and you will see the truth.
And at this point, we’ll pass on the inspirational torch to the eBay seller who states in all-caps to signify the intense emotions he/she feels about the car:
“THIS CAR HAS THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS WHILE IT LOOKS JUST LIKE A $200,000.00 BENTLEY IT HAS THE ENGINE OF THE CHRYSLER SO YOU HAVE NO EXPENSIVE TUNE UPS OR PARTS TO BUY ANY ONE CAN WORK ON THIS CAR AND GET PARTS AT YOUR LOCAL AUTO ZONE.”
“YOU WILL ENJOY THIS CAR AND TURN HEADS EVERY WHERE YOU GO, A FIRST CLASS BEAUTIFUL CAR FOR PENNIES ON THE DOLLAR OF A REAL BENTLEY, DON’T LET THIS ONE GET AWAY!”
If you don’t want to “let this one get away”, you will have to depart with (…) $26,500.
