Engine Number 9926

Very very rare & in beautiful running condition.

Originally this car was ordered by a wealthy New Zealand based sheep station owner. It subsequently went to Australia where its current touring body by Dunnet & Hawkes of Brisbane was fitted.

The car has a four cylinder sleeve valve engine of some 6. 3 litres in capacity. A massive engine rebuild was undertaken a couple of thousand miles ago to the tune of in excess of £60. 00. This included new custom made cylinder bore liners . cylinder heads. cylinder blocks. Sleeves. junk rings & pistons etc etc etc. Consequently the engine is in not far off "as new" condition. It starts readily & settles down to an almost imperceptible idle. The quietness of this sleeve valve design has to be heard to be believed. An electric start mechanism has been fitted for ease of starting. obviating the need to swing 6. 3 litres from cold on the handle.

On the road the car drives beautifully. Ample torque is available in all of the three gears & the car drives along in a very Ghost like manner. Indeed the car represents a superb alternative to a Ghost at a fraction of the price for a similarly dated machine.

The car comes to us with a veteran car club dating certificate issued in 1956. It also has a FIVA identity card. By way of a running in trip for the new engine the car completed an arduous alpenfahrt re-enactment covering the course of 1500 or so steep miles with aplomb. including an ascent of the notorious Katschberg pass.

The car is festooned with assorted brass lamps & fittings. A brass pump is used to raise fuel pressure prior to starting. The car has a full length hood & also a complete tonneau cover set. The seats are covered in Burgundy buttoned leather in superb condition. Likewise the door cards & pouches are Burgundy leather. A period Parp Parp horn is fitted along with 8 day clock & eagle mascot.

You really have to come & drive this car to appreciate just what a wonderful driving machine it is. With the sleeve valve freshly rebuilt it should be good for the next 102 years or so.
