Topps World on Wheels: Cooper-Bristol

Cooper-Bristol Trading Card

More from the Topps World on Wheels bubblegum card collection. This time, Cooper-Bristol.

From the card’s reverse: This is the most successful British racing car built since the end of World War II. It is called the “Cooper-Bristol” because a Bristol-made engine is put into the Cooper-made chassis. The six cylinder overhead valve engines give them lap speeds of 100 mph range. These cars took part in almost every major competition in their class, and always have a very good account of themselves.

    Looks as though its meant to be Mike Hawthorne at the wheel, who made his rep in one of these. Dinky Toy made a model of one and I owned two of ’em.
