Arnolt - Arnolt Bristol

The Arnolt-Bristol car was built using the Bristol 404 chassis, starting in 1953, and bodied by Nuccio Bertone to the design of Franco Scaglione. Bertone had previously made a batch of bodies for Arnolt, for the MG chassis that Arnolt had supplied for bodywork. With the Arnolt-Bristol the 404 was the shortest of the production cars Bristol produced, while the engine specification provided by Bristol was the uprated type BS1 Mk2. This had the higher compression and was quoted at 130bhp at 5500 rpm. Price on the East coast of the USA was listed at $4,000 for the basic "Competition" model, with the Bolide being a better appointed version. There was also the Deluxe model, the most practical road car version with features such as wind up windows which was listed at $5,000.

Arnolt Bristol tyre fitment was originally 550x16, and Blockley makers the perfect 550x16 tyre for the Arnolt. See full details of this tyre at the link below:
