Default Choice of Bristol

Yes - good choice and good price range. Cheaper by far to get a really good one (at the upper end of your ££range) than one needing new coachwork and paint - price these out first from a quality restorer if you consider buying one needing these, you may have a shock. Wing edges, for example, are a particular area which deteriorates over the years. Get an engineers report if you are buying privately.
Engines on the other hand are common to so many US cars, so cheap as chips compared to any comparable performance car. And useful gearbox upgrades are also readily available.
How do they drive? They handle as if on rails and are capable of massive yet discreet performance. A gentleman's express indeed.
Every Bristol is a car to drive fast and far; especially these 2 models.
