Footnotes

  • First registered in October 1971 as 'WPO 365K', this Bristol 411 has been owned for the last 20 years by a Bristol Owners Club member and was well known as the fastest road-going Bristol of its day. The first owner was from Chicago, George McCulloch Bell, well-known racer of motorcycles and power boats. The original 6.3-litre Chrysler V8 engine was considered insufficient for his needs and he had a 7.2-litre Keith Black engine fitted at the Bristol factory in the car's second year together with a long range aluminium fuel tank, larger capacity radiator, twin electric fuel pumps and Minilite alloy wheels.

    The car has had two subsequent owners: the first reregistered the car as 'TF 12' while the second was a car collector who does not seem to have used it very much. The current owner purchased the car in 1994 and changed the registration to '5005 CD'. It had 60,000 miles showing on the odometer when purchased, and several continental RAC classic events and enthusiastic regular usage have increased this to 97,000 today. It has been MoT'd every year during this period and been kept in a heated garage.

    In 1997 the Chrysler 440 engine was completely rebuilt (and carefully balanced) with forged JP pistons, Crane camshaft, flowed headers and a stainless steel exhaust system. Vented discs were fitted together with up-rated Koni dampers and a thicker anti-roll bar. The car was tested on a rolling road dynamometer and recorded 325bhp and 370lbs/ft torque (printout available).

    The paintwork was renovated in 2013 in the original Midnight Blue and the woodwork completely restored, while the headlining was renewed in grey West of England cloth at the factory. It is worthwhile noting that the car retains its original magnesium Minilite wheels (not modern aluminium replicas). The battery and 'V' rated tyres were replaced recently. Tax exempt, the car is offered with sundry bills, current road fund licence, MoT to November 2015 and V5C registration document.
