  • Chassis number: 7850159Z

Registered in September 1979 and now with (1)15,868 miles showing on its odometer. As an historic vehicle, the Bristol no longer requires an annual MoT; its last expired in July 2023 after having been tested the previous year at an indicated (1)15,845 miles. After a period in dry storage, around £15,000 was spent on the recommissioning of the car to get it roadworthy. Work included having the front seats refurbished and the dashboard polished to remove cracks. The vendor reports that the car drives well, but can be a bit lumpy on starting up, and the choke is inoperative. The hood is described as good and waterproof. Accompanying the Bristol are its past and previous V5Cs, Bristol Owners' Club magazines, road test magazine features, and a huge amount of invoices stretching right back to 1979, along with MoT certificates. Pretty much most of the car's life is chronicled within the folder that accompanies it.
