They would probabaly be registered via an IVA process. This requires that the engines meet the emissions requirements relevant to the age of the engine. At least that was the case, I recall there was a proposal that IVA'd cars should meet current emissions requirements but I do not know if that came to fruition.

Edit It looks as if the proposed change did not make it into legislation. from the Gov.uk website "For spark ignition engine vehicles the emissions test is based on the age of the engine."

Spotted these adverts yesterday....

https://www.carandclassic.co.uk/car/C1290604

https://www.carandclassic.co.uk/car/C1292456

I emailed the advertiser, and received a reply from Jason Wharton, the owner of the new companies involved.

....

"Thank you for your inquiry today through Car & Classic.

We shall have those details available in Q3 of this year, when our prototype Bristol 411 Series 8 vehicle will be unveiled.

We would be delighted to keep in touch in the meantime, by email, phone or in person, and to know more of your requirements."

.....

Messrs Gallafents Ltd - http://www.gallafents.co.uk/ in London act for us in relation to our IP."


There were also a couple of documents - an article from Autocar (13th Jan), and some info on their "Atelier Bristol" services:

"BRISTOL MANUFACTURING LIMITED – ATELIER BRISTOL CARS SERVICE OFFERING

As part of our Business Plan to revive the Bristol marque, we intend in 2021 to launch a new service called Atelier Bristol Cars (ABC). The new department will include access to the brand’s historical archives, a vehicle restoration workshop, vehicle certification, and the availability or rebuilding of numerous genuine spare parts for all historical Bristol models. Our mission is to be a reference point for all our customers, and to provide historical information, to preserve and restore vehicles, source original spare parts and certify authenticity of a car and its components.
Atelier Bristol Cars will emphasize the importance of preserving the broad heritage and unique knowledge of both the marque, and the cars. The platform and services which we will launch are listed below:

- Archives Bristol Cars: an historical archive which includes the documentation of historical Bristol car models, technical schemes, body colors, leathers, images and several company publications.

- Restoration and Heritage Services: a unique service that allows the owner to preserve, maintain and restore their vehicle to its original features using exclusively original spare parts and the unique techniques.

- Certification and Certificate of Authenticity for Bristol classic cars: this documentation will help protect the value of Bristol classic cars and provide the market with vehicle authentication.

- Spare Parts: a supply service of genuine spare parts for every model of Bristol classic cars, either coming from the former stocks, or produced by us with original and certified suppliers.

The main activity offered by Atelier Bristol Cars will be the Restoration and Preservation of Bristol Heritage Models, from 400 to Fighter."

[followed by the steps of a "Standard Complete Restoration]



But their website is still not active!

Always liked the mentioned 411 Bristol. Resurrected from the ashes. I wonder how long this will last.

There is a guy in the village with a black 411 and it has a beautiful growl with it, we haven't met yet just passed and waved several times.
I suspect the new one will be well beyond my pocket and like the Morgan GTR in the 200k region....
