Date of first registration: 14th May 1970


Fully restored over 5 years in Germany by a classic car specialist.


The complete body was removed revealing all corrosion work needed, from this point the documents and photographs of the rebuild, show that all of the metal work in this Bristol 411 was completely renewed. Once completed the underside was completed in the most up to date unseal products to secure the ensure the new metal is protected.  The interior cabin was fully coated with Dynamat to make sure minimal outside noise reaches the passengers.

Every part of the vehicle was restored/replaced with new when in the reassembling process. The coachwork has been tastefully modified in many areas, the standard rain gutters that run along the roof lines have been removed and smoothed over, the front end has been made more angular and the boot lock relocated to the boot panel. Aluminium custom made wheels were manufactured especially for this 411, they were designed to still retain the original type chrome Bristol hubcaps. Much more discreet custom chrome bumper were made, they sit tighter to the body.

Finally the car was finished in the period correct 1970’s Porche Slate Grey paired with Bentley Porpoise Grey.
