The car is now 85 years old and still has its original engine, gearbox and rear axle. I have the ownership history from 1945 to 1967 but between then and 1994 there is no trace of where it was. Rumour has it that it spent time in a European museum.

It’s been pushed around a little in the years between 2008 and 2012, but hopefully I can give it a longer term home and get it back into good order. The car has always started on the button and drives nicely (since I got the front suspension wedges round the right way!). I am currently rewiring it and having the radiator refurbished.
