1953 Bristol 403 Project


1953 Bristol 403 Project. Substantially restored. The body has had many hours spent on it and only needs 2 small panels prior to being painted, ideally in its original blue. The interior has been completely re-trimmed in red and it is ready to re-fit. The charismatic Bristol 100a engine has been rebuilt and the correct Borg-Warner gearbox including the hand to source remote linkage is present. These Aerodynamic Bristols were very advanced cars in the early 1950s and made to an outstandingly high quality, this example appears to be complete and is a straightforward job to complete. If required we would be delighted to finish the car to the new owners specification. £25,500
