A remarkably sound and very correct car. unmolested and correct in all ways. and with an excellent chassis and under body. showing no signs of the usual rust problems. In fact. the chassis and underside are remarkably clean and sound. Paintwork and interior are untouched. and could do with some attention. but the car is offered re-commissioned. serviced. UK registered after a long period in the USA. and hopefully back on its original registration number. SMB 3. which we have claimed. Although we cannot substantiate it. based upon condition. we feel that this is a low mileage car. making it all the more appealing.

Chassis No. SOG24. Reg No. SMB 3 (but see above). £32. 00.

Snippets:
Dr. Mathew Orr (graduated in 1923 from Glasgow) took delivery of SOG24 whilst he was practising medicine in Morden. Surrey. An earlier Mathew Orr (1746/1790) had also graduated from Glasgow in 1762. due to “financial embarrassment” Matthew Orr joined his brothers Thomas & John at the family estate Kings Bay in Tobago where Mathew died. The 2nd owner of SOG24 was Frederick Leslie Preston. an architect & structural engineer who joined the firm of Easton & Robertson (later renamed as Easton & Robertson. Cushdin. Preston & Smith). John Murray Easton (1889/1975) and Howard Morley Robertson (1888/1963) –they had both studied & worked during the start of their careers in France formed their partnership in 1919 – their portfolio included Royal Horticultural Hall. London; Savoy Hotel. Claridge's Hotel. Sadler's Wells Theatre and the Shell Centre in London. It is not known when Frederick Preston joined the firm and would be fun to find out how long he was there for.
