A traditional. handsome limousine. in scruffy condition. but sound and very useable. The paint is old and rather poor. with many blemishes. and the really needs re-doing. The interior is original. very good black leather to the front. and Bedford cord to the rear. which is rather stained and showing its age. but basically good. The engine was partially rebuilt recently. with new pistons. etc. and runs really well. The car may look scruffy. but it is delightful to drive. with a surprisingly lively feel. with decent steering. brakes. etc. MoT tested until July 2013. and just fitted with new tyres.

Chassis No. GNC45. Reg No. AYR 399. £24. 00.

Snippets: Delivered to the Rt. Hon Horace Brooks Marshall of Chipstead. publisher. newspaper distributor & Lord Mayor of London (1918/19). Amongst his many decorations were the curiously named “Order of Timsal of Persia” (in diamonds) & the “Order of the Excellent Crop of China”. In 1917 his eldest daughter. Laura Ellen married Joseph Arthur Rank producer of films such as The Rake's Progress. Sapphire & the Carry On. The Marshall's family home was Shabden Park in Chipstead - an earlier occupant of Shabden was Capt James Lockhart Little of the King's Dragoons. whilst service in the Dragoon Guards he lost his money in a bank failure & had to transfer to the less expensive 81st foot. however. lack of funds did not prevent him from acquiring a half share in the racehorse “Chandler” which he rode to victory in the 1848 Grand National. the Capt's other notable racing success was “Peter Simple” in the 1953 Grand Nat. Horace Marshall died in 1936 & GNC45 was purchased by Lady V. A. Myers OBE. widow of Sir Arthur Myers who in 1897 had inherited his uncle's shareholding in Campbell & Ehrenfreid. This was because Sir Arthur's father Louis Myers had died in 1869 when Arthur was only 2yrs old & the family was provided for by his mother's brother Louis Ehrenfreid. Arthur & Vera met in 1900 but at her father's request Arthur waited for 2 years to ask his permission for his daughter's hand & in 1902 they married. After an extended European honey-moon of some 12 months they arrived in Auckland to find that their new home – Cintra - had not been completed! By 1920 the Myers& their 3 children returned to UK & took up residence in Mayfair. London. In 2007 the book “The Myers” which charts 4 generations of the family was published by Goldsmith & Bassett.
