FOR SALE: a 1955 Bristol 405
This car has been in the owner’s family since it was bought new in 1955. The car has been treasured throughout its life and has hardly spent a night in the open. Always kept in a dehumidified garage when in Canada. It was used extensively for high speed touring in Europe by the owner’s parents. It was imported into Canada in 1988 and has been maintained by the owner, always being stored in a heated, dehumidified garage with regular fluid changes and only occasional use.
From the Factory Records: “This car was despatched from the Bristol factory on 17th June 1955. It was Porcelain Green in colour and sent to University Motors Limited (a UK Bristol dealer). As it states on the bulkhead plate, the engine in the car should be no. 4053. The number you show on the cylinder head (4071) originally belonged to the engine of a Red 405 despatched on 8th Jul 55. The engine number is also stamped into the block casting on a small flat surface above the starter motor (routinely covered by paint). Only by looking at that do you know whether you have the original engine, a full engine replacement, or just a replacement cylinder head.”
