The Bristol 411 was introduced in 1970 and was fitted with a 6.5 litre Chrysler V8 and Torqueflite automatic transmission. At the time it was claimed to be the fastest 4 seat car in the world. It was built by hand to aircraft standards in small numbers (about 260 cars in all) over 5 series at Filton. This is the last car built and incorporates all the improvements and upgrades over earlier cars. Finished in the classic colours of dark blue with saddle interior it is in superb condition having been carefully looked after by enthusiast owners witnesssed by two full box files of history and maintenance invoices. Not only does it look impeccable but it drives as a 411 should.

This MG C is fitted with a Downton triple carb conversion making a very lively car indeed.

The 911 964 was produced from 1990 until 1994 and is regarded by many people as the most attractive 911 of all. This Cobalt Blue example with linen leather interior piped blue and a dark blue hood is particularly pretty.

This 1927 Scott Super Squirrel was professionally restored by well known specialist bike restorers Tennant Eyles about 30 years ago. I have owned it since 1994 and it has been on display and not used since then. It still looks immaculate but will obviously require some recommissioning. It is one of the last Scotts with the iconic "biscuit tin" fuel tank.
The posters visible in the photo are original Scott factory posters dating from about 1913 and are almost certainly unique. They could be purchased seperately.
