A very unusual. compact and relatively lightweight saloon body. with a style reminiscent of a slightly earlier period than its date gives this car an interesting ‘edge' over other PIIIs. Bodied by Inskip of New York. and sold there new. only coming to the UK recently. The car is nicely sound and correct. with an appealing. original interior – black leather front. beige cloth rear- incorporating a division and some impressive inlaid woodwork. Offered prepared. MoT tested until March 2013. and UK registered.

Chassis No. 3AZ190. Reg No. 793 YUD. £65. 00.

Snippets: The Laconia Order

3AZ190 sailed on the unlucky vessel named the SS Laconia. The 1st SS Laconia launched in 1911 was sunk in 1917 by the German U-50. she was later nicknamed the “Silver Queen” as at the time of her torpedoing she was carrying silver worth over $100million! The 2nd SS Laconia was launched as a cruiser in 1921. requisitioned & converted into an armed merchant cruiser by the Admiralty in 1939 & sunk in 1942 by the German U-156 under the command Werner Hartenstein! The resulting rescue attempts by Hartenstein & other U-boats led to what is called the “Laconia Order” issued by Donitz. this made it absolutely clear that no U-boats were to take part in any rescue operations from the date. Fortunately for 3AZ190 on the occasion of her being shipping from UK to New York in October 1936 her journey was uneventful! The new owner of 3AZ190 was Edward Willis Bill who was a very successful importer & manufacturer of a large variety of hats. E W Bill formed his first company Bill & Caldwell in 1886 & when Mr Caldwell died in 1908 E W Bill became the sole proprietor of the firm. His only son. William Coe Bill followed in his father's footsteps and in 1903 William started his own hat business in Hartford. William was a member of many Masonic Lodges including the Sphinx Temple. the Knights Templar & the unusually named Pythagoras Chapter.
