Type 406

Type 406

The last of the six cylinder Bristols. Compared to the previous aerodynes, this was a conventional three box, two door saloon profile which was coachbuilt outside the Bristol factory, and finished to a very high standard..  The engine capacity was increased to 2.2 litres, giving better low end torque: the rear axle, still suspended on torsion bars, was located with a Watts linkage. Disc brakes all round  and overdrive produced perhaps the finest balanced of all six cylinder Bristols.

181 were built between 1958 -1961.

105 bhp. Max speed 110 mph. 

 Cost £4493 17s.
