There is no Ford S6 petrol engine of 1991cc.

If it has a Ford engine, why is it called Bristol?

Alternatively, if it has a 1991cc S6 Bristol engine, why does the link say it’s a Ford unit?

You don’t see Notek “Blue Spot” driving lamps very often these days.

The info is confusing. A couple of comments suggest it's a Bristol but that was 1971cc and the plate info implies an AC engine (1991cc). There are some online clips from the ep, but could only find a full one overdubbed in French so no idea what they found in its derelict state - there was a passing comment somewhere else that they found a Triumph "six" installed, but noted that while TR2/3 had 1991cc, it was a four. I'll remove the Bristol reference to leave it open for any accurate info.

There is also the possibility of the AC 1991cc engine being in there, but the design was ancient (dating from 1920) and had presumably, by 1957, reached the limit of its development. The Bristol engine was a development of the prewar BMW 2 litre six, but started from a better basis and would no doubt have been the power unit of choice at the time if you could afford it.

The Triumph engine was a four, being the Standard Vanguard engine with some modification to allow the TR types to be campaigned in under 2 litre events iirc. There was also, however the six fitted in the Triumph 2000 which first appeared in the Vanguard Six of 1961, and was 1991cc, a/c to Sedgwick and Gillies, but 1998cc in the TRs, from the same source. Misprint?

Given the choice for use as a daily driver, the 2553cc Ford Zephyr engine would seem a good idea. (If it fitted in the engine bay.)
