Bristol 411 Series 1 from 1970 which has been finished in Cambridge Grey coachwork. The leather interior has been upholstered Red that contrasts great with the Black carpets. Mechanically this Bristol 411 is in very good order providing a beautiful drive. This Bristol 411 is a wonderful car through and through and would be a great purchase for anybody interested in a British Classic Car.     


Bristol 411 Series 1 first registered: January 1970 
Chassis No. 411-7507 
Original Reg No: CGN 490H

In December of 1987 Mr G Dowdle purchased this 411, which at the time the car was fitted with a non-original 400CI V8 engine. He then sourced and fitted a refurbished 383 HIPO engine with some very considerable modifications including:
High volume oil pump
Ported cylinder heads
10-1 Compression ratio
STD HiPO Camshaft

Many other upgrades were carried out which includes air conditioning and Minilite style wheels. After 7 years of daily use the 411 was then sold to Mr M Ranawake who completely restored the body, frame and commissioned a bare metal respray plus many more smaller tasks.

Moving on to 2016 where we had the pleasure in finding this 411 a new home here in the UK. The current owners have thoroughly enjoyed the car but have decided 2023 is the year to downsize. During their 7 year ownership the car has always been serviced and maintained Spencer Lane-Jones engineers. A complete new stainless steel exhaust system was fitted to obtain the original roar of the 383 HiPO V8.

Most recently this car has had a bare metal respray with no expense spared!
