Bristol 411 S5

Bristol 411 S5

With the 411, Bristol Cars for the first time since the 407 introduced a change of engine. Although the Chrysler V8 was still the V8 engine of choice the old A type engine was replaced by the much larger big block B series offering 6277cc displacement compared to 5211cc of the 410. This larger engine gave an estimated 30% more power bringing the top speed to 143mph! To handle the power a limited slip differential was fitted.

This Bristol 411 Series 5 comes from long term ownership of over a decade. The history file details correspondence between Tony Crook the CEO, Sid Lovesey the head of operations and the most recent owner that documents a comprehensive refurbishment that took place in 2005

The documentation goes on to acknowledge Bristol Cars extensive service history of this car. All fascinating to read and valuable. 153k is the present mileage  and we know that there are only 40 registered in the UK today. So a rare car indeed

Presented in good order in the correct Burgundy paintwork trimmed with complimentary black vinyl roof NYH37P is on the button and ready to drive. Much work has been done including recent respray of the aluminium bodywork, and new walnut dashboard and cappings. However being nearly 40 years old there is some further improvement that a new owner could make to bring the car into first class shape. Best left as a discussion between us and the new owner we feel as opposed to us making decisions unilaterally. These enhancements would be of a cosmetic nature as structurally and mechanically the car remains a fine vehicle.

To be sold with a warranty and new MOT the history file and original handbook this 411 S5 is attractively priced and represents real value for money and through ourselves a chance to have the improvements performed by the very staff that worked on the car in 2005 and indeed probably in 1975!
