A really handsome and well-proportioned car from the heyday of motoring elegance. in correct. sound and very appealing condition. Rather shabby cosmetically in some respects. and would benefit from some attention to paintwork. but the car is tremendously appealing. and drives just as a PII should. with smooth performance. delightful. precise and light steering. and is an insight into how these cars must have felt when new. Features include a full set of original stainless steel lamps with Barker dipping mechanism. riveted bonnet. rear-mounted spare wheel. and more besides. Now for the interesting bit! Several years. but just 200 miles ago. the engine was fully overhauled by Ristes of Nottingham. using a new cylinder head and blocks at a cost of approximately £40. 00! Other work has included a radiator re-core. Autovac overhaul. new clutch. etc. etc. Complete with original handbook. most of its tools. including the wheel spanner which appears never to have been used. and most of the small tools in their original running board trays. Well documented history includes a lovely record of the purchase of the car by Jimmy Skinner in 1957 for £125! Now somewhat more than that. but very good value for money. particularly considering recent expenditure. Unfortunately. the car lost its original registration number in the 1990s. but we are hoping to apply a more suitable number than the 'age related' one that it currently wears.

Snippets: The Castle Beare Connections.

Charles Amherst Robertson took delivery of 182GY at the family home of Castle Bar House in Ealing. This very grand house has also been known as Castle Bear. Castle Beare & Castle Hill House – earlier occupiers have included Mr & Mrs Thomas Smith (1790s) whose miniature portrait was painted in 1797 by B Pym; in 1814 Thomas' daughter Elizabeth married the brewer Sir Henry Meux (1770/1841). Two of Elizabeth & Thomas' daughters married into the nobility - becoming Lady Marianne Bowyer-Smith & Lady Emma Malden with their brother Henry (1818/83) marrying Lady Louisa Bruce. By 1871 Castle Bar House was home to Charles Thomas Amherst (Jeweller) & his family – his daughter Lucy Ann Amherst was Charles's mother. Scions of the Amherst family include the Franciscan Friar known as Father Algy & Charles Amherst Villiers the automotive engineer who developed the super-charger & designed the land speed car “Blue Bird” for Malcolm Campbell. Charles Villiers who lived in Ealing. was a close friend of Ian Fleming & in Casino Royale. Bond drives a 4 ½ litre Bentley with the Amherst-Villiers supercharger! It would appear from the Log book that in 1936 ownership of 182GY was transferred to Mrs Sarah Robertson – perhaps Charles had died? Sarah Robertson herself passed away in May 1964 & September of that year. Castle Bar & its' contents of paintings. prints. silver. books & furniture. after having been within the family for 100 years was put up for auction. it was later demolished.
