Type 404

Type 404:

The only short wheelbase two litre Bristol: design had reverted to an ash frame supporting its alloy coachwork.Note the streamlined radiator air intake, modelled on those of the Brabazon, and the bonnet air scoop making space for those tall triple Solex carburettors, thus allowing lowered wings and nose.  Note, too, the possibly unique front wing compartments keeping the spare wheel on the left, and battery on the right low down and within the wheelbase.  Overdrive was available.

Number built 51 from 1953-55. 

Power 105 – 125 bhp  (depending on spec) at 5000 rpm.

Max speed 105 mph
