|The Bristol 410 was the fourth series of Chrysler V8-engined models and the last to use the reliable 5.2 litre engine originally found in the Bristol 407. Bristol aimed for a more aerodynamic approach than that found on their previous five series dating back to the 405. The styling improvements were relatively minor but every one of them was aimed to make for a more curved appearance,the most noteworthy change was that the front headlamps were fully faired into the wings of the car rather than protruding outwards as on previous models.|
Bristol felt that the safety problems of push-button automatic transmission were too difficult to counter and thus they shifted to a more conventional lever mounted between the two front seats.
Only 82 were built and probably less than half survive today with collectors finally appreciating the finer points of this English classic and its robust engineering compared to many of its contempories in the 1960s.
This lovely example is finished in Regency red with Grey leather and has the benefit of being production number one.
