The Arnolt Bristol was a concept car that was built as a joint venture between American automotive company SH Arnolt Inc. and Bristol Cars, a famous company based out of the United Kingdom. The project was almost entirely overseen by Chicago industrialist Stanley H. Arnolt and saw production between 1953 and 1959. The Arnolt Bristol was inspired by Stanley Arnolts desire to create a fast racing car with a sleek and stylish design similar to the popular Italian cars of the day. The car was built on the chassis of the Bristol 404-series car and 1971 cc inline-six engine that delivered 130 HP. In fact, every model was built with the same Bristol BS1 MKII engine, but some owners modified or swapped out engines for better performance on the racetrack. Overall, the Arnolt Bristol was a popular car that sold quickly on the showroom floors. While it wasnt an automobile that the average person had knowledge of, it did make a lot of noise among racing enthusiasts.
