IN THE WORKSHOP
This Bristol 411 series 6 is currently in the process of a substantial, no expenses spared; full body restoration and LS3 V8 engine upgrade – the perfect balance of high technology and uncompromising performance.
Fully stripped of all its glory and down to bear metal, all sections displaying significant wear and corrosion have been removed and replaced by our coachwork experts with newly fabricated panels - all in keeping with the original specification.
From time to time we are tasked with converting our British-made classics to better suit our customers on the continent. This particular 411 has undergone its RHD - LHD conversion, including dashboard repositioning, wiring harnesses, steering wheel and pedal systems ready for export. Further embracing improvements and modifications, the addition of some modern comforts will include climate control, new window regulator set-up as well as modified electronic instrument clusters to name but a few.
Needless to say, there’s still a long road ahead before this project is taken to completion (expected summer 2018) but for now, here are some images that will take you through this restoration development one phase at a time.
