An exceptionally lovely example of an attractive. rare and desirable ‘long tail' drop head coupe. which has benefited from a huge amount of restoration work. carried out to a very high standard. The body was fully restored in the 1980s/90s. in the USA culminating in a lovely repaint and high quality re-upholstery job. in a very tasteful colour scheme. which really suits the lines of the car. In more recent times. the car has been fitted with a fully overhauled 4½ litre engine and the rear axle has been upgraded to high ratio. both which are very positive and worthwhile modifications. Rewired. incorporating sensible modifications. such as flashing indicators. hazard warning lights. rear fog warning lights. battery isolator. etc. and has electric windows. This work is documented in the file supplied with the car. Fitted with new Avon radial tyres. prepared. MoT tested until April 2016. A fabulous car. ready to tour!

Chassis No. B283FU. Reg No. JBT 77. £125. 00.

Snippets: Richard Norman Pilling lived at Kiplin Lodge. Howdendyke which his wife Maud had inherited due to fact that her brother George Eric Asquith Anderton IV had been killed in WWI whilst serving with the Lancashire Fusiliers. It would seem that history had a habit of repeating itself within the family – George II died aged just 40 & left the works to his widow Mary to run until their son George III came of age. George III died when his son was just 12 & and the works were left for his widow & cousin Laura (a scion of the Asquith political family) to run. in time Laura remarried to another cousin - Tom Hall. As George IV was killed in WWI his sister Maude inherited the family firm with her husband R. N. Pilling becoming M. D. of the firm. An in-depth book titled “The Annihilation of a place called Howdendyke” by J D Porteous has been published which details the Anderton family & their involvement with the community which proves fascinating. including the fact that in 1889 Maude aged just 3 launched a ketch the “Maude Mary” which was part of her father's fleet.
