Practical Classics (UK) - - CLUBS EVENTS -

Ever heard of a Bris­tol 500? Us nei­ther, but we have now thanks to one be­ing sold through the Bris­tol Own­ers’ Club’s news­let­ter. The ven­dor, Ken Robin­son, told us: ‘Based on a 1937 Fiat Topolino, the car was restyled by Bris­tol Aero­plane Com­pany MD Sir Peter Mase­field in 1957/58. It had a Per­spex roof and was in­tended to be a pro­to­type. I bought the car in 1997 from Sir Peter along with the orig­i­nal con­ver­sion draw­ing.’ Visit:
