Shetland

This must be the best thing to hit Shetland for decades. The link doesn’t work ( for me at least ) but can be copied and pasted into the browser address bar.

401 for sale in USA

Members might not have seen this 401 for sale in USA, as advertised on a Swedish website. As usual, I have not checked if the car is advertised for sale elsewhere. The advertisement is a little ambiguous – but interesting ?

411 S3 in USA

Some members who follow the offerings of Bristols for sale might not have seen this one. It appears on a site not usually noted for the sale of Bristols. A 1972 411 Series 3  in the USA is for sale. The comments below the advertisement might be interesting to some.

401 article

I have aquired a rare article from the early 1950′s. The publication is primarily a price guide for current cars and secondhand cars, together with a road test every month and also general articles. The 401 test and review is accompanied by 4 photographs in B/W, one cutaway drawing and one data sheet. It has small pages at 6″ x 4 ” and is in poor condition, though still readable.
I would like to share the article with any forum member who may be interested. To receive the scanned items as one .pdf attachment please email a request to me at bristol@davedale.co.uk. On previous occasions I have had many requests to see items that I have scanned. Please be be patient and be prepared to wait for a reply as it is easier for me to do nothing until all requests have been received and then I can send out the scan to all, as one mass mailing. Many thanks.
