"A very nice copy from the fabled car manufacturer with only one sales office located on Kensington High Street in London."


This is the eighth manufactured car from Bristol. The first three are considered prototypes. A few remain in the world of 487 manufactured between 1947 and 1950. This car has the chassis number 108 and came to Sweden at Bromma airfield on August 7th 1947. It was AB Hans Osterman who ordered the car and by chance, the aviation division also had a delivery coming to Sweden so it was a good idea to bring the cars here with a Bristol Freighter transport aircraft.
The current owner has owned the car for 36 years. The first 22 years were devoted to collecting parts and renovating the car. It’s made a few homage visits back to England, and mainly been driven to classic car meetings and pleasure trip.
The Bristol 400 was shown at the Geneva Motor Show in the spring of 1947.
It has a straight six-cylinder engine with hemispherical combustion chambers. The engine originates from the BMW 328 and the gearbox is a manual 4 speed.
Top speed is around 150 km/h.

  • At this auction, many vehicles have been included in car collections and have been stored (mothballed) for a long time. For this reason, they are described from a collector's perspective and may need technical reviews and maintenance service - oil, battery replacement, new tires, brake review, etc. - before they can be used. .
  • During the auction days information about a vehicle may be updated up to the day before the auction ends. When you bid at the end of the auction period - and also if you have made an earlier bid - we therefore ask you to read the descriptions carefully, in case something has been changed due to new information.
