Picture of 406 from Bristol

Bristol 406.

More information on this Bristol:

Few Bristol 406s were built before the company turned to V8 power. The owner of this car told me that it had been in this barn for years after the engine blew a piston. The registration was 483 KAE - surely this 406 was restored and not left to rot? The photo dates to 1995.

This section of oldclassiccar is full of photographs showing a mix of unrestored, derelict, abandoned, and scrapped old cars. Some cars are with enthusiasts awaiting restoration, others are dumped or seen in breakers yards. I don't have any more information on the classic Bristol above, so all news regarding what happened to it, or the rescue of this particular 406 would be much appreciated.

All the photos, including this picture of an old Bristol 406, are shown as a reminder of how old cars go to look once past their first flush of youth. Some of the scrapyards in this archive no longer exist, others perhaps survive but don't allow you to walk around them. And those that you can still get in probably don't have many classics in them any more. For more photos like this one of the 406, and similar old Bristols, please visit the main scrapyard & scrap cars image page.
