Technical specifications, photos and description:
This Lanchester is from 1936 and thus benefits from the larger 1444cc engine. This car has the 'Wilson' preselect gearbox and the coach work is by Mulliner. The history of this car is that it has had only 3 owners up to 2003 when the car received a major overhaul fully photgraphed to show engine. gearbox. fluid flywheel and all engine ancillaries all being overhauld. The car also had new suspension including leaf springs. link and trackrod ends. The car was completely rewired using period cables and a new exhaust.
The paintwork is a very dark blue with cream and is finished to a very high standard still shining like glass! The underside is also very clean without any rust. The interior was treated to a new headlining and carpets with the seats being replaced to exacting standards even the rear blind still works. The brakes are mechanical and the wheels have been powder coated and treated to new tyres. the glass is triplex all round. The car still retains the original folding luggage rack on the rear and the spare wheel cover. Desmo door mirrors.
The car starts and runs as it should having covered less than 3000 miles since the full rebuild and having had services since collecting plenty of rally plaques to show the distances this car can cover. In recent years the car has been used for film work and stared in several British made films and also used for weddings being one of the most photograped cars around. It comes with the old rally plaques and old m. ot's from back to the 1990's and a copy of the 1939 handbook together with a photograph album showing the stages of the rebuild (costing more than the starting price).
Old wrecks sell for in excess of £4500 with nice examples selling in excess of £13. 00 so I will start the auction at £8950. 00 and sell without reserve this figure being less than the cost of getting it to this condition. The chrome is excellent and the car will not disappoint the most serious collector. Any inspection welcome. Paypal not accepted on this sale please ring for payment methods and any questions. sale is due to the redevelopment of the storage facitilty into housing I can be contacted on 01179372558 or mobile 07917304801. I will add more pictures later. No Canvassers.
