Bristol 401

Reference: Bris/401/B

Model: Bristol 401

Year: 1951

Colour: Dark Blue

Sold: 9th Jun 2022

This 1951 Bristol 401 is finished in stunning Deep Blue coachwork that gives this classic motor vehicle a striking presence. The interiors upholstery is present in Beige leather which retains the simplistic yet elegant colour scheme.  This Bristol 401 is identifiable as a later model of the range due to it not having the square edged bottom sill, non-Ivory instruments and the indicator placed in the centre of the dash. 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, overdrive unit, alfin front drums and a kenlowe fan all worthwhile and sympathetically installed.
