Stanley "Wacky" Arnolt was similar to Max Hoffmann in New York, an American businessman who imported European sports cars to the United States. In 1953 he took the risk to develop and produce vehicles that bore his name with the Italian design company Carozzeria Bertone. In addition to the MG Arnolt, also mounted at Bertone, he chose for the Roadster the Bristol 404 as a base. Franco Scaglione, responsible for many exciting Bertone designs, designed this roadster. In total, only 142 copies were created, which already had a long journey behind them. The chassis production took place in Filton in England, the body assembly in Italy. About Genoa, the vehicles were then shipped to America.
This Arnolt Bristol De Luxe was regularly used in races in the US. Several runs at Laguna Seca or Sears Point are documented. In 1993, a dentist from Munich bought him and had him restored by recognized specialists, especially for the sensitive Bristol racing engines. The classic color white with blue stripes was typical of the Arnolt Bristol. Since 2009 he is with the current owner.
