Default Owners Manual and Partslist

Hello,

is the owners handbook and the parts list for the 411 available as a reprint? I know that it can be downloaded as a pdf file, but I'd love to have a traditionally printed book in my car.

Regards

Thomas

Ok, no reply.

So I guess there is no reprint available. I think I am going do make a nicely bound reprint for my own personal use. Can anyone tell me how the original manual looked from the outside? Maybe leather bound 🤣? A Picture would be appreciated..

Regards

Thomas

Thomas.

I searched high and low for an original owners manual and eventually found a copy in the UK which I bought at great cost. It duly arrived but to my dismay was a photocopy which he later told me was supplied to him by Bristol Cars.

I have never seen an original copy.

As far as I am aware no workshop manual or spare parts book was ever produced.

I would be interested in a bound copy if you get that far,

Peter,
With the 411/3 I had it had a blue embossed card cover and was similar in size and format to the earlier handbooks. I have a very similar copy for a later series 4 or 5 where the specification changes for the larger engine.
Bristol cars never did a parts book after the 410 as far as I am aware though they must have had some sort of parts list available for the factory and the spares department. The 411 handbooks do turn up occasionally on ebay so I will keep my eye out and if I spot one post a link to it.

Hi Geoff,

would it be possible to post a picture of the outside of the manual here? I think this would be very interseting to fellow 411 owners.

Regards

Thomas
