Colemann Classic Cars has just announced on their Instagram page that Brian Marelli will be back working from 4 May and open for consultations!
Recently two new companies supplying spare parts and services for Bristol cars have been established. Both companies are very active on Instagram so check them out.
- The ‘Classic Bristol Car Parts Company Ltd‘ is offering replacement parts for Bristol cars and have obtained the former parts stock of Bristol Cars Services.
The company has been established by the BOC and is managed by Graeme Payne ex. BCL Parts Manager who is teamed with Bristol cars specialist repairer John Tullett. Both John and Graeme are also BODA members.
The company and parts are currently based in Warminster but are looking for new premises somewhere near Windlesham where Bristol Cars was previously located.
Enquiries should be addressed to Graeme at firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone between 10 am and 5pm on 020 4542 7782. Email enquiries are preferred. Their website is www.classicbristolcarpartscompany.co.uk
- ‘Coleman Classic Cars Ltd‘ has been established by Mark Coleman who worked together with Brian Marelli for many years at Bristol Cars Services until it’s sad liquidation in 2020.
The company offers maintenance, servicing, repairs, upgrades and advice for your Bristol.
They are located near Maidenhead and can be contacted by telephone on 020 39873812 or email email@example.com.

A great sell for the 403!

Please can anyone advise on a supplier for a correct battery for a 405. I am rebuilding the ex Ken Evans car and need a decent battery to start the engine. It seems the type 244 is the nearest to the original Lucas but no one seems to have one. All suggestions welcome. John.
There is a nice report in the September issue of The Automobile on the restoration of Andy Gibbs’ 403. It is well worth reading!
