Story and History

1976 Bristol 411 Series V
Complete Body Off Restoration
Engine Upgrade

All of us here in the business have loved Bristol's since were we youngsters and having had the privilege of being a chum of Tony Crook over the years, made it even more special

This 411, having been finished and registered in March 1976 must be one of the last built for the 603 was launched only a little after this with Autocar having a 2 page spread in August 1976

Being the series V she is endowed with the largest engine of the period being 400cu in (6556cc) boasting 330 bhp and as Crook stated in his brochure, this is one of the fastest full 4 seater touring cars in production

When he says 4 full seater he truly means this for 4 adults of over 6' feet can sit comfortably in the car for hours on end, cruising at 100 MPH and topping off at 140 MPH

Our has the period correct steel wheels with chrome hubcaps as well as a set of fully refurbished Avon Safety Wheel should a buyer wish to buy these as well

In fact we should mention that this particular 411 has been completely restored to more than new condition

The restoration was originally was consigned to Bristol Cars themselves, for the owner insists on only the best for everything he and his family own

Sadly, having paid them a substantial amount as a starting prepayment they closed the business only a few days later - so he managed to retrieve his goods and sent the car over to a restoration company he had used for his Facel Vega's (including an Excellence) in Holland

They had previously restored Bristol's too, so he gave them 'carte blanche' and after a couple of years and €140.000 this is what they came up with - probably the finest restoration on a 411 we have ever seen

Everything was attended to, for instance not only were the seats retrimmed, the frames were fully restored too, new air conditioning system was installed ( spine chillingly efficient ), as was central locking, reversing camera, Becker Mexico Retro (giving Blu-Tooth, Sat-Nav etc) with Hirschmann aerial, front seat head restraint for safety reasons

A stainless steel exhaust system, electric door mirrors, Wilton carpet over mats, a discreet high level stop lamp etc etc

Mechanically everything was addressed with engine, gearbox and back axle over haul and the engine was built for extra performance concentrating on mid range rather than outright top end power - an Edelbrook Performance carburettor was dialled in and tuned accordingly as well

Nothing has been left unattended and the quality of build is as good as the factory would have produced

Since restoration a mere 4.000 miles have been covered

Offered at a fraction of the cost of a rebuild today, and much less than the Factory quoted 4 years ago too

Currently running on Swiss Plates - we can organise EU or UK registration should the buyer wish for this
