Bristol 407/408 Saloon one of only 83 ever made! superb original conditio 1963

Allmän beskrivning : We have the pleasure of presenting a rare 1963 Bristol 408 Saloon. Bought a few years ago by the well-known Aston Martin specialist, Desmond J Small from its first owner. The in 1963 introduced 408 had the new iconic Bristol shape that remained recognisable up to the 1972 series 3 Bristol 411. The Bristol was an exclusive, sporty and yet quintessential a distinguished gentleman’s coupe! The striking rectangular grill, straight wing lines and oval rear lights are stunning. In 4 years only 83 408’s were ever produced. The list price of the Bristol’s was up there with the Rolls Royce’s and Bentleys. This car is certainly a rarity considering its superb original, unrestored condition and mileage of 72,000 miles. The bodywork has had a full bare-metal professional re-spray. The wonderful bodywork has perfectly straight panels and brilliant paintwork. The perfectly sound underbody is still original and totally rust-free. The original interior trim exudes a wonderful patina. It has a 250 Hp 5.2 V8 Chrysler engine in combination with a 3-stage, ‘push button’ automatic transmission. The car drives a treat. This is surely a rare superbly preserved Bristol! Gallery Aaldering is Europe’s leading Classic Cars specialist since 1975!

om Bristol
Bristol Cars Ltd är den sista kvarvarande uppdelningen av Bristol Aeroplane Company, en stor flygplanstillverkare. År 1945 tog de över Fraser Nash som hade sina "Fraser Nash BMW" Konceptet räknat ut. Detta passar bra för Bristol ambitioner att tillverka en högkvalitativ sportbil.
Med stöd av krigsskadestånd styrelsen, köpte de rättigheterna att tillverka tre BMW-modeller och 328 motor från BMW.
Men 1947 Frazer Nash såldes vidare och båda märken blev självständiga enheter.

Handbyggd Bristols är mycket originella och genuint brittiska bilar, trots deras BMW härledd teknologi, som kombinerar inslag av flygindustrin med småskalig biltillverkning.
