SLJ Hackett are pleased to offer this 1953 example of the Bristol 403.

Chassis Number: 403/1382

Originally dispatched: 1953

Original colour: Mist Blue


As shown in the photographs, 95% of the coach work has been completed with any corrosion being attended to I the process. 403/1382 now sits in protective undercoat awaiting a new owner to choose it’s new colour, possibly Mist Blue…


Dispatched in 1953 with a Bristol 100A 6 cylinder engine which is still present to this say with both cylinder block and head matching numbers! During the recent restoration work carried out the engine has been stripped and rebuilt (paper work missing, strip down and inspection recommended).


“Many chassis improvements – 100BHP and 100MPH. In worthy successor to the Bristol 401”

“The 403 has put the Bristol very indeed among the worlds best cars, and as an extremely fast machine of immense refinement and superb handling qualities it is probably unique. We should indeed be proud of this fine example of British craftmanship”. John Bolster Autocar 1953


Prior to the strip down for restoration 403/1382 was a complete driving example, all parts are present ready to be re-fitted.


Areas restored so far:

Coach work

Chrome work




With over 50 years’ experience in the market we are in a firm position to advise and assist with getting 403/1382 returned to its former glory!
