1961 Bristol 406
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 a stunning car and was known as the “business man’s sports coupe”.
Hand-built, largely in aluminium, and 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 re-built 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 it’s way!
After this model engines were all Chrysler V8’s (for the next 40 years).
This car is a joy to drive.
