I require a Bristol engine for my ace as it has a chevy and I want to bring it back to original.
Regards

hmm, Why not swap the chevy out for a 289 Ford and call it cobra? Reaslly though I think its admirable that you wish to drop a Bristol engine back into instead of hot rodding it like so many other people would do today.

Have you spoken to Bristol? I know they re-do a lot of thier old cars, and might at least give you a line on an engine.

Googled a website for you.

This takes you right into thier renovation section, so I would guess they would be the ones to talk to.

Shucks. I was hopeful. That is a nice piece of iron you're working on.

Speaking of nice iron, is that a Silverstone in your avatar? /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/thumbsup.gif

Duh. I click your name, and Bingo! I am as astute as the dog of that name. Also spotted "Clothing Manufacturer?" That makes me curious.

I have been manufacturing clothes for twenty five years and never get tired of it as it is always changes. Launched my own brand a few years ago and sponsoring events here and there. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/driving.gif

Cool. I used to work in an upscale department store this side of the pond. While I have never been a clothes hound, I do have to admit that it is a facinating industry.

Looking forward to the pics. I love the Silverstone, particularly the spare, that is just cool.
