A good-looking cabriolet. with some appealing features such as very pretty wings. bell headlights. elongated side lamps. ‘diver's helmet' rear lamps. white-faced instruments and a very interestingly shaped division. We have just finished re-furbishing the engine. which is re-bored. with new pistons. etc. and the car runs very nicely. Complete with correct 23” split rim wheels with straight sided tyres. Charming. versatile and full of vintage character. Offered prepared. serviced and newly MoT tested.

Chassis No. GA71. Reg No. XR 7663. £59. 00.

Snippets: Silversmiths. WWI Ace & a Dragon: Delivered to William Massey Birks in 1925 – the year that the family firm “Henry Birks & Son Silversmiths. Jewellers & Cutlers” (the “Tiffany's of Canada”) opened their first London branch on Regent St. William M. Birks was an early motoring enthusiast - at his summer estate he had a 7 car garage which was full! The firm was founded by his father Henry Birks in 1878 (Montreal) & by 1893 William & his brother John & Gerald were partners in the firm alongside their father. The Birks names has been associated with Silver-smithing since the 1500s with Richard Birks & in the 1600s with William Birks – William's unusual trade mark was a tobacco pipe which he applied to the blades of his Sterling work! By various mergers (business & marriage) Henry Birks are today known as Birks & Mayors; they were the official suppliers of Jewellery for the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver. During WWI William's son Gerald Alfred Birks served with the RFC & was credited with the downing of 12 enemy aircraft. he was awarded the Military Cross & Bar & by August 1918 was invalided out of the FRC as a result of war wounds. William's eldest son Henry Gifford Birks enlisted in the Canadian Infantry & was discharged in 1917 after spending 10months in the trenches. In 1934 HRH Prince of Wales honoured Birks with a Royal Warrant of Appointment and in 1998 they won the Diamonds International Awards for “La Plume de Cyrano” – a feather brooch with 348 diamonds with a weight of 37. 53 carats designed by Annick Lucier. The next recorded name on the Chassis Cards is that of M. A. Storer a resident of Sherwood. Nottingham; the area is famous for the fabulous “Dragon of Wantley” & of course Robin Hood & His Merry Men.
