A very handsome. early 20/25. very much enhanced by features such as very shapely fluted and beaded wings. separate running boards. louvred bonnet & scuttle. draught excluders to top of doors. rear-mounted spare wheel. etc. and a lovely set of stainless steel Lucas lamps. The coachwork is very sound. and although somewhat scruffy inside. if spruced up and serviced. etc. it can be used as is. and would in many ways be more appealing like this. rather than restored and pristine. Back on its original UK registration number. following repatriation from the USA. Characterful and very appealing!

Chassis No. GFT63. Reg No. NV 940. £35. 00.

Snippets: GFT63 was delivered to E Elliott at Pond House. Duston & also registered at Thorplands in Moulton. After Mr Elliott's death in 1938 Pond House was acquired by Mary Helen Bouverie (a scion of the Pleydell-Bouverie family) – in 1940 her home of Delapre Abbey had been requisition by the War Office. all the furniture of Delapre was auctioned & Mary Bouverie moved to Pond House. In 1941 Mary was unwell & it was arranged for her to move to rooms in the stable block at Delapre. she died in January 1943 leaving the estate to her nephew. In 1946 Mrs Elliot had instructed Jackson-Stops to sell Thorplands & it was advertised for sale in Country Life with the auction to be held in March 1946 - the property consisted of farm land of 22 acres. a Lodge. 3 roods & 15 poles. Later owners of GFT63 include John Nuttall (cotton spinner & mill owner of Lancashire) and W P Robertson who lived in a grand Victorian Villa named South Halket in the village of Lugton. Ayrshire. The village was located on 2 tolls roads – one to Kilmarnock and the other to Irvine. as such in 1830 the village had just 4 properties – the Inn. the Smithy & 2 Toll Houses; by 1845 it is recorded that with an increase in travellers there was a further 6 houses selling “Spirituous Liquors”! In 1919 Lugton Garage was run by Angie & Angus Robertson – perhaps there is a family connection with W. P. Robertson?
