1968 BRISTOL 410
Registration No: 9888 PJ
Chassis No: 410-7453
Colour: Silver Over Blue

 Bristol has always been an exclusive marque. They have appealed to enthusiasts and connoisseurs who appreciate engineering excellence and that quintessential understated English styling. The 410 is the fourth in the series of the Chrysler V8 engined models, with only 82 of the bespoke Grand Tourers being manufactured between 1968/69. Performance is what Mr Crook would describe as adequate, with a 250 bhp V8 driving through an automatic Torqueflite gearbox affording effortless 100mph plus cruising performance for four in luxury. This particular 410 is finished in dark blue with a silver roof. The interior is trimmed in blue/grey leather with contrasting dark blue carpets and re-veneered dashboard. Our vendor acquired the Bristol in 2007 and in 2008 installed an LPG conversion (receipt on file with a certificate for £1,800) which our vendor says has made the Bristol much more economical to run without any detrimental effect on performance. There is a large history file accompanying the car with historical and more recent receipts for maintenance, noteworthy works carried out include an engine rebuild in 2007 by Queensberry Road Garage for £5,511.05, repairs to inner and outer sills among other works for £4,219.74 in February 2017, amongst numerous other bills. The Bristol is described as a usable car with a certain charm which could be improved with by the next custodian. Subject to an insurance write off in 1989, MOT until September 2020 (although exempt) and tax-exempt
