The Footman James Bristol Classic car show saw the third heat of the Footman James Kingstown Shipping Car of the Year competition, which was won by this stunning 1957 Plymouth Belvedere, belonging to Nick Parker from Bristol. The car had previously belonged to famed Bristol hot rodder Jerry Denning, who had bought it as an unfinished project.
Nick had first seen it in 2005, when it totally blew him away, but it took almost a decade until the opportunity arose for him to acquire it. Not a lot is known of the car’s history in the States, other than a dealer tag on the back from New York state. The car boasts a lot of its original interior, a 301 cu in V8 and of course that famous push-button transmission.
