Default Looking for a sound Bristol 400

Hi,

I am looking for a sound 400. Preferably in unmolested original running condition, but I consider also a car needing restoration or a concourse condition car.

Thank you and Happy Motoring!

Spartacus ,

There always seem to be a few of 400's for sale , of the 420 standard BAC bodied 400's made , plus a few special bodied cars .

Andrew Blow/ Wiltshire has 400 chassis 585 , that looks to be in nice condition

Walter Heale /West Sussex was advertising 400/561 a few months ago , it might be still available .

Joop Stoltze/Netherlands has 400/111 and 400/198 for sale , but I heard recently that 400/111 could have been sold .

James Rowland /Shropshire advertised 400/197 last year , I have not heard that it sold.

Historics at Brooklands are auctioning 400 chassis 178 on 30th August , that needs a major restoration


Where are you located ??

Prices of 400s have risen quite a bit the past few years , unrestored examples seem to bring up to GBP20k , while good ones bring GBP55 - 65k and nicely restored cars bring GBP85 - 90k .
The cost of correct restoration of a 400 is quite high , possibly GBP50 - 70k so be careful to check the condition thoroughly .

Come back to me if you need further details

Default 400 wanted

Thanks to Geoff and to Rupert.

Joop Stoltze has one remaining 400 for sale, the dark blue one.

If a 400 owner is reading this forum and he's planning to part with his car, I will be pleased to talk with him.

Best wishes,

Marc

There is a nice 400 (400/443) for sale in northern Germany close to Schleswig. An ad will appear in the next BOC Newsletter due to be published shortly.
I will send you more details by private mail.

I have just found out that this ad will not appear until the October issue of the BOC Newsletter so have now put it on this site with some pictures in a separate thread, see Bristol 400 for sale in Germany
