Bristol Type 410 Saloon

Production: 1967 - 1969

The Type 410 sported a new smoother, neater body style. It was introduced in 1967 and discontinued in 1969. The production series body is easily identified by the linked tramline trims on the flanks, the body trim being extended from the front to the rear of the car. In its revised frontal treatment, the outer lamps are partly fared into the body, not on a flat panel as on the Types 408 and 409.

It was the first model to be fitted as standard with 15 inch wheels on rims that allowed a choice of wider treads, and also suited the more commonly available tyre sizes. The most obvious difference internally is the return of an auto gear shift lever set centrally into the floor pan.

Notes on car seen in slideshow (reg: 0LH III)

Note new headlamp arrangement. Just to confuse matters further, this particular Type 410 has been also been retro-fitted with Type 411 trims to body flanks.

Note the oval vertical rear light cluster arrangement and vestigial body wing fins.

This car has the correct 410 side trims linked at front and rear.
