Stanley H. 'Wacky' Arnolt was one of the first individuals to offer a sports car after World War II. His vehicle had Italian styling coupled with British mechanicals. Bristol was contracted to handle the underpinnings and design courtesy of Bertone's Franco Scaglione. Under the lightweight bonnet was a six-cylinder engine derived from BMW's 328.

This 1959 Arnolt-Bristol Deluxe Roadster was originally purchased by W.M. Hurt of New Jersey. It is believed it was used by Mr. Hurt in competition for some time. These beliefs are reinforced with the optional front sway bar, larger brake drums, and adjustable torsion bars that were fitted at the factory.

The second owner was James Rogers who began a restoration, bringing it back to its original glory. It has been shown at the 2008 Masterpiece Concours in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, where it received a Best in Class award and Best Open Post-War Sports Car award.

The car has side curtains and a full tonneau cover. There is a four-speed manual transmission and four-wheel hydraulic brakes. In the front is an independent suspension with a rear setup consisting of adjustable torsion bars.

In 2009, this Deluxe Roadster was offered for sale at the Gooding & Company auction held in Scottsdale, Arizona where it was estimated to sell for $150,000 - $225,000. The lot was sold for the sum of $135,000, including buyer's premium.
