This 1948 Bristol 400 is presented in the very popular Bristol colour midnight Blue. The interior shows signs of originality with the beautifully patinaed Beige leather seats. The Brown carpets are in similar condition and overall, the cabin of this 400 is a very pleasant place to be.  Mechanically the car is in good condition which is testament to the regular care, maintenance, and servicing of all the owners has subjected this vehicle too. Currently this example is being fuelled by the triple SU carburation setup which is correct for the 85A Bristol engine powering most early Bristol 400’s. This is an iconic Bristol model, and this example is a good opportunity to make the leap into the world of classic motoring
