1961 Bris­tol 406

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Auction News -

Among Bris­tols, the late six-cylin­der cars are highly re­garded, of­fer­ing a driv­ing ex­pe­ri­ence quite dif­fer­ent from that of the V8-en­gined suc­ces­sors. Dur­ing the pre­vi­ous owner’s ten­ure, this 1961 406 re­ceived £44,000 of work. Owned by the ven­dor since 2003, it has had plenty of at­ten­tion from mar­que spe­cial­ist Spencer Lane-Jones, in­clud­ing an en­gine over­haul, a rear axle re­build and the com­plete re­build­ing of the one-shot lu­bri­ca­tion sys­tem. It looks lovely in al­most to-be-ex­pected dark red.
