Comments and questions to the seller:
from Stan , dated 16 march 2021 Declan, I don’t own the car. So, I know nothing about it. And, I’m in the states. Sorry, I’m not much help. I suggest you join Bristol Owners Club forum. I’m sure that you will get plenty of assistance there. Good luck. Happy Motoring
from Declan Curran, dated 24 january 2021 Hi Stan, odd question perhaps but would you happen to know which firm / specialist undertook all the engine work on this car? I have a project 401 with a dismantled engine that requires a complete rebuild, and I'm keen to deal with a firm that knows what they're doing. If you could drop me a line with any info I'd be hugely grateful. Many thanks, Declan
from Stan Kanter , dated 13 january 2021 Is this vehicle still for sale? If so, where is it located? Can you show receipts for represented work?
