An excellent example. thoroughly and carefully restored in the 1980s by Richard Moss including faithful reproduction of the original Gurney Nutting body. as fitted to the car when new. Unusually and importantly. the car retains the original engine. No. 775. and following the restoration was re-united with its original registration number as well. following a period carrying an alternative. In 1928. the second owner took the car to Malaya. from where it returned three years later. and since then has remained in the UK with a total of six owners. the last since 2007. The car is still in excellent condition following the now thirty year old restoration. and passed our workshop inspection with flying colours! Has gently matured since the 1980s. adding to its appeal. performs very nicely. and is easy to drive. assisted by a recently fitted overdrive unit. The original propshaft is included. so that the overdrive can be removed should the new owner wish. Has hood. hood bag. tonneau cover. and comes with the correct beaded edge wheels & tyres. together with a later wellbase set as an alternative. Comes with a history file. MoT tested and ready to go.

Chassis No. 773. Reg No. XX 1487. £225. 00.

Snippets:

Gerald James Cuthbert Harrison (1895/1954) Cons MP (Bodmin). PPS to First Lord of the Admiralty. Amateur Cricketer took delivery of No. 773 at Cowley Street. London. G. J. C. Harrison was scion of the Robley / Robinson family of Scalesceugh (burnt down in 1745 by the Scots & rebuilt in 1746). The family's business interests included Shipping (1st being Arroyo in 1893). Mining/Land. Livestock & Auctioneering & the family tree can be traced back to the 1700s. In 1952 Gerald's daughter - Margaret became the 1st wife of the 10th Earl of Mayo - whose family claim to be descended from a “Pirate Queen” of Connemara! G. J. C. Harrison's addresses included Wreay Hall. Carlisle and 3 in London - 15 Holland Villas. 63 Tufton Street (Colonel Thomas Blood (1618/80) had lived on this street - he was an Anglo-Irish officer who in 1671 attempted to steal the Crown Jewels from the Tower of London) & 15 Cowley Street which dates from 1722. By 1928 No 773 was acquired by Edward Hedley-Stevens (born 1889) who was a manager of the British American Tobacco Co based in Penang. Malaysia. In 1915 whilst stationed in Penang he married Miss Olive Williams whose cousins Philip & Seymour Williams were residents in Malaya. Edward Stevens returned to the UK in the early 1930s due to ill-health. No 773 returned with him. After a further 30 years No 773 was acquired by a Mr. H M B Thorp – there is a gentleman by the name of Harold Marsh Birch Thorp. There is a Thomas Thorp (scientific instrument inventor) who with his partner Thomas Gardiner Marsh invented the prepayment gas meter. Harold M. B. Thorp together with Robert Franklin Thorp also lodged several patents including an automatic feeding apparatus for game birds & poultry. By 1982 No 773 was with Charles B.
