  2. Thank you for this list, it’s very useful. I didn’t know that my car (chassis 18710) is the only SII dhc automatic in Alice Blue.

  3. Fourteen 23474

    THE BOSISTO, or Bristol Special. This was Chassis 23474 dispatched on 11/08/1949, originally registered in Bristol with NHW4 in November 1950. It was later re registered with BLH492H. The Bosisto, was also known locally as The Bristol Special. One of the last individual bodies constructed on a Fourteen chassis. Designed and constructed by Bristol racing driver and car constructor Jim Bosisto. He was a member of the Bristol Aeroplane Motor Club and was noted for his 500cc Formula 3 racing cars. This unique and unusual Alvis was powered by a highly tuned twin carburetor engine with raised compression and raised axle ratio said to be capable of 90mph. In later years Jim Bosisto was reported to be Lord Brocket’s chief car restorer. This car was advertised for sale in a 1961 AOC Bulletin. Does it still exist? The later London re-registration dates to 1969.
