Aircraft Quality, Pre-war BMW Based: 1948 Bristol 400

Creemore Valley Classics VIP Stories #33:
The 1948 Bristol 400 maroon car was one of 400 cars made that were based upon a 1938 BMW 328, and built by the Bristol Aircraft Company.
 
The body is built around a wood frame using aluminum and steel, powered by a 6 cyl hemi head with triple SU carbs and 4-speed with freewheeling.
 
I’ve had the pleasure of driving the car extensively throughout Europe and Canada, participating in a number of competition events. It is the only one in Canada, and it has been restored and maintained by the owner.
