We have pleasure in offering this Bristol 410 finished in dark blue/grey with light grey leather upholstery and dark grey carpets. Modern seat belts have been fitted including lap belts for the rear seat occupants. This is a well used and well maintained example (with considerable written history by the current enthusiastic owner, who has owned it since July 2000).

It drives very well, and has just had a significant brake upgrade and new freeflow exhaust manifolds. It starts "on the button" and runs smoothly and with real verve. 

To quote the owner : "This is a well-traveled car. Originally registered in 1968 in Northumberland she subsequently spent a number of years in California. Austria, Belgium, Bosnia–Herzegovina, Croatia, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Montenegro, Morocco, Romania, Slovenia, Spain and Switzerland have also been graced by her presence since she was purchased by the current owners in 2000.

The focus has been on driveability. Significant recent investment includes a big brake conversion and freeflow exhaust manifolds. She boasts a Webasto sunroof and rear windows that can be opened or closed by the driver at speed - invaluable for long distance travel. Much attention has also been paid to wind noise and to reliability. In short, she drives as she should.

She comes with a (very) large history file. A summary has been produced and can be sent on request.

The word patina comes to mind, and the car is all the better for it.

Of the 410 when new : "it is difficult to find any points for criticism" (John Bolster Autosport Road Test December 1967).

PLEASE NOTE : the rear bumper shown in the photos is not a 410 bumper. The owner has obtained a correct 410 rear bumper, needing minor repairs and re-chroming. This will be supplied with the car.
