We have the pleasure of presenting a rare 1963 408 Saloon. Bought a few years ago by the well-known Aston Martin specialist, Desmond J Small from its first owner. The in 1963 introduced 408 had the new iconic Bristol shape that remained recognisable up to the 1972 series 3 Bristol 411. The Bristol was an exclusive, sporty and yet quintessential a distinguished gentleman’s coupe! The striking rectangular grill, straight wing lines and oval rear lights are stunning. In 4 years only 83 408’s were ever produced. The list price of the Bristol’s was up there with the Rolls Royce’s and Bentleys. This car is certainly a rarity considering its superb original, unrestored condition and mileage of 72,000 miles. The bodywork has had a full bare-metal professional re-spray. The wonderful bodywork has perfectly straight panels and brilliant paintwork. The perfectly sound underbody is still original and totally rust-free. The original interior trim exudes a wonderful patina. It has a 250 Hp 5.2 V8 Chrysler engine in combination with a 3-stage, ‘push button’ automatic transmission. The car drives a treat. This is surely a rare superbly preserved Bristol!
