Default Supercharged Bristol Special

I see Greg. Or do I?
Doesn't a car (the chassis at least) have to have been a Bristol at one time
in order to call it a Bristol Special?
I see the article does later refer to it as a Michell Special, but then why
not just a Mitchell?
According to a website I just found JSC 577 was originally an unused
registration series.
In their drop-down of marques DVLA have no Bristol with this registration,
but there is a "Bristol (BLMC)" - whatever that is - currently registered
and licenced as JSC 577:

Date of Liability 01 08 2011
Date of First Registration 03 09 1951
Year of Manufacture 1951
Cylinder Capacity (cc) 1971CC
CO2 Emissions Not Available
Fuel Type Petrol
Export Marker Not Applicable
Vehicle Status Licence Not Due
Vehicle Colour GREEN
Vehicle Type Approval

How did they do that?
Someone in any case must be colour blind.....
And I wouldn't have thought the insurance can be valid either.

By the way, I did respond to Eric in the end, but the thread had been
closed! Censure, or simply sensible?
If you are reading this Eric, no, I don't work at Bristol Cars, in fact not
for any car (or part) manufacturer. But go on Eric, show us yer letter!
