The Bristol 411 was built from 1969 until 1976. It was the fifth Bristol model to feature a Chrysler V8 engine, however the 411 introduced a much larger 6277cc V8. It was more powerful than the previous models and boasted a top speed of 143mph. A limited slip differential was fitted to cope with increased power. Over the seven years it was produced there were a number of changes; the Series 2 came with self-levelling suspension and the Series 3 introduced a new design for the car with the four headlamp design. A lower compression ratio was introduced too. For the Series 4, a larger 6556cc engine was used. The famous Avon Safety Wheels were also made available. These had been successfully demonstrated on a Bristol 411 by staging a blowout at 144mph; the tyre did not detach from the rim, nor did the driver lose control of the car. The Series 5 had some further design tweaks and introduced inertia reel seat belts.

This beautiful 1975 Bristol 411 Series 4 is finished in black over Tidal Sand Gold with a black Connolly hide interior and was specified with the Avon Safety Wheels from new and is powered by the 6556cc Chrysler V8 engine. It was first registered on 1st March 1975 to The Bristol Tool Selection Company It is in excellent condition and boasts a full service history, mainly from Bristol Cars and Spencer Lane-Jones. The history folder itself is over two inches thick and is also stored digitally on a CD. In 1991, the car had a body-off restoration and full repaint which is all documented with photos. Under the bonnet the engine has been around the clock once, but was fully rebuilt at 110,000. Our vendor bought the car in 2009 and it had a full mechanical inspection by Spencer Lane-Jones. Work completed included the cooling system which was upgraded, the ignition system renewed, the front chassis cross member was rebuilt and so was the rear suspension with Koni adjustable shock absorbers. The brake servos were restored and a new Edelbrock carburettor fitted. The car has a V5C registration certificate and MoT test certificate valid until May 2016. This truly is an outstanding example of a British gentleman's motor car and would make an excellent choice for any connoisseur.
