1948 Bristol 400

£79,995 SOLD

1948 Bristol 400. Full bodywork restoration just completed and in arguably the best original colour combination with fully retrimmed tan leather interior. The BMW 328 derived 2 litre six cylinder engine gives outstanding performance for the era, this example being fitted with an 80c version and excellent remote change gearbox by the factory. A new wiring loom has incorporated flashing indicators within the original front and rear sidelamps fitted with much brighter LED bulbs for much increased safety. In the same family ownership for the last 10 years the car is now ready for immediate use, and eligible for many high profile events notably the Mille Miglia Retrospective. £79,995
