Bristol 603 (1976-82) Engine 5900cc V8 OHV Registration Number DLW 4 T BRISTOL SET[email protected]/sets/72157623759876288... The in house designed Bristol 603 was introduced in 1976 alongside the Zagota built 412 as replacements for the 411 model. The classic three box saloon was replaced by a more streamlined design with large curved rear window. and increased interior space. Originally offered with two engine options, the 603 E (Economy) powered by a 5211cc V8 OHV and the 603S (Sports) with a 5900cc V8 OHV. The Series 2 followed in 1978, as the effects of the OPEC oil crisis were easing, and with it the smaller engine option was dropped, leaving only the Chrysler 5900cc V8 engine. The Series 2 updates included a repositioning of the exhaust vents, the headlamp cluster set in a new grille and new rear light clusters.. The third series of 1982 came as the Britannia and Brigand with smaller radiator grilles and a more modern rear vision mirrors and new tail lights . The Series 3 was modified periodically during its twelve year production run. The Series 4 of 1994 saw the introduction of another famous British aeroplane name the Blenheim. With the Blenheim, Bristol further refined the 603, in particular modernising the mechanicals of the car through the introduction of multi-port fuel injection, which improved both performance and fuel consumption. Turbocharging was no longer available, but the Blenheim Series 1 still had the same level of performance as the Brigand.. There was a significant change in frontal and rear-end styling with the introduction of the Blenheim. The headlights were paired and mounted considerably inboard from the extreme front of the car. The bonnet was also modified with the fitting of gas struts to hold it up when open for the first time, and featured a fully rectangular hinge for the first time in Bristol's history. Since that time the Blenheim has gone through two additional series, the Bristol Blenheim Series 2, made from 1998 to the end of 1999, featured for the first time a 4 speed overdrive automatic transmission, which significantly improved fuel consumption, whilst the Blenheim 3 which went on sale in 2000 saw the abandonment of the vertically mounted tail-lights and a much revised interior layout with completely new gear selector and improved instrumentation.
