This 1950 Bristol 401 is finished in stunning Black coachwork that gives this classic motor vehicle a striking presence. The interior is upholstered in Magnolia leather which retains the simplistic yet elegant colour scheme. The Maroon piping on the upholstery blends well with the light Red carpets and combined with the lightly colored upholstery give this cabin a warm and comfortable feel. This Bristol 401 is identifiable as an early model of the range due to its square edged bottom sill, Ivory instruments and the indicator placed on the top of the steering column. This is a lovely presented classic Bristol with little signs of wear or age visible throughout. Mechanically this 401 is very well kept with regular maintenance and repairs being carried out to ensure that this Bristol remains at the top of its game. This is largely an original car with the only modifications being the introduction of a servo and an overdrive unit, both worthwhile and sympathetically installed.
