I am pretty...

I understand that the Beaufighter twinned light units are from a Pontiac, some early 80s model of Firebird or TransAm I think. That's according to the BOC chairman, whose 412 was fitted with a...

To possibly fuel your concern, I have got through two ignition switches in the near 90,000 miles I have had my 410. The original (or at least the one fitted when I bought the car) expired around 12...

Thanks for posting this, it's nice to see another 400 resurface after so many years off the radar.

According to my app, my 410 has averaged 16.7 mpg (calculated tank by tank) over the last 35,000 miles. High is around 22mpg, achievable if I sit at a steady 70-80mph on the motorway for the whole...

I'm pretty sure that is a 409 so may be Setright's.

My 410 is on 205/70 R15 Blockleys, on the original wheels. The Blockley radials seem to have quite soft sidewalls; ride is improved, but handling...

I think the Avon wheels originally had a three-colour pentagonal Bristol badge, different from the earlier round Bristol badge you have there.

I think the Blenheims had rear speakers in the rear footwells, mounted under the rear seats in the kickboards. I've seen other Bristols with speakers so fitted as well.

Or would refitting them on the opposite side be ok?

Hi Laurent,

I suspect a number of early Blenheims (or one of them at least) were 'remanufactured' and sold as new Blenheim 3s, receiving a new VIN in the process. I know of someone who had a very...
