1953 Bristol 403

Chassis No. 4031836

Engine No. 85/C 1675

·         Very Rare Luxury Tourer

·         A unique combination of British. Italian & German engineering

·         Eligible for vintage tours and rallies throughout the world!

·         Fantastic piece of British motoring

The Bristol is the result of a superior German BMW engine. Italian coachwork and aerodynamic efficiency. The Bristol 403 was a luxury automobile produced between 1953 and 1955 by British manufacturer Bristol Aeroplane Co. (whose car division later became Bristol Cars). The Touring design is amplified in the Bristol 403 and draws strong inspiration from the early BMW pre-war models. The long hood quietly hides the BMW straight-six engine. With around 281 examples of the 403's created. their exclusivity is forever guaranteed.

Offered here is a well suited driver's 403 and a great candidate for touring and rallies. eligible for many vintage events around the world. An English car until the mid-2000s. it is believed that less than 10 examples of the 403 currently reside in the United States.

This rare alloy motorcar is finished in dark blue lacquer paintwork over red leather hides and displays an older cosmetic restoration. while retaining much of its original instrumentation and trim. Chips and scuffs are visible throughout the exterior paint which is only expected from aging restoration. The cabin's upholstery remains in great condition overall. with just the right amount of patina. A classic Moto-Lita steering wheel replaces the accompanying original.

The Bristol starts right up. while the gauges. sunshades and accessories function as intended. A well sorted and an incredibly strong driving example. the Bristol's motor supplies plenty of power to an equally smooth transmission. resulting in outstanding road manners across the board – both city and freeway driving alike. This car is suited to the true driving enthusiast and would make for an exceptionally uncommon addition to any collection. A number of original spare parts. vintage UK plates. articles. service specs MOT certificates. tax IDs. import paperwork and original Instruction Manual accompany.
