    Tojeiro-Bristol TAD 1954

    Two TAD chassis from John Tojeiro were fitted with Bristol straight six engines, thus creating the Tojeiro-Bristol sportscars.

    Not much is known, but there you go.

    Tojeiro TAD/2/55

    Of the three early 1955 “space frame series” racing cars constructed, Percy Crabb’s Bristol-powered version, 8 APH, was the first to be delivered. (This is thought to be TAD1/55). The third car, likely registered SOO 140, went to Tojeiro racer Chris Threlfall. TAD/2/55, registered as JPR 603 and originally fitted with a 1,500 cc Turner engine, was delivered to Tojeiro exponent Jim Fiander, an engineering apprentice living in Blackford, Dorset. He raced TAD/2/55 for about a year and a half, achieving several class wins, although recently he recalled the car as being “somewhat underpowered.”

    At the end of 1956 when Fiander reported for his National Service, he asked his father to sell the car. (The Fiander power complaint was remedied, likely in the late ’50s when a subsequent owner fitted the two-litre Bristol engine which is still with the car)
