1961 Bristol 406 - £85,000.00
The last model with the original 6 cylinder 2.2 litre engine. One of only 175 built and the Bristol Owners Club say there are only 52 left, to their knowledge. This is s stunning car as was known as the "business man's sports coupe". Hand built, largely in aluminium, finished in deep maroon with grey leather interior piped in maroon. Lovely walnut dash with all instruments in working order. It has a comprehensive service history confirming the mileage of 66,000 miles, the car has had a fortune spent on it over the years including a rebuilt rear axle and one shot lubrication system overhaul. Four speed gearbox with overdrive.
Traditional front wings open to store spare wheel, battery & brake servo. The steering wheel is not original but we have located and purchased an original from Australia, which is on its way!
After this model engines were all Chrysler V8's (for the next 40 years).
This car is absolute joy to drive and own as well as being a genuine, solid investment - it will not disappoint in any way!
