Current customer rating: current rating for this car(2.05) based on 375 votes
A relatively light project. being a sound. correct limousine. with much potential. Good body structure. with good door fit. deep red leather front and rear. most of which is good. and even some of the paint will clean up reasonably. The engine is out and dismantled. and has a repaired crankcase. but we also have a spare engine available. if you wish to go down this route. The car has been in storage for a number of years. but with the engine done. should come back to life nicely. and be a very respectable wedding hire limousine. Has a correct and desirable set of QK596 headlamps and long trumpet horns. Last on the road in 2006.

Chassis No. GAN78. Reg No. AGE 307. £14. 00.

Snippets – The Biscuit Family:

Delivered to John Ewing MacFarlane (1883/1973). his grandfather had inherited the biscuit (translated as twice baked) firm of Macfarlane Lang in 1841 from his uncle James Lang. John Macfarlane Snr died in 1908. literally the day before he was due to retire & the firm was left to his 3 sons James (Kt 1932). John & George. In 1912 John & his daughter were aboard the P&O liner “Oceana” enroute to India when it was rammed & sunk by the German iron barque “Pisagua”; the Oceana lowered one of her lifeboats but it capsized killing 9 of the occupants including John MacFarlane. his daughter was thrown clear and survived. The MacFarlane family business interests were varied & included Shipping: Thomas Dunlop & Co with a vessel named “Clan MacFarlane”; Power: Gas Light & Coke Co Ltd and Property. John E. MacFarlane's brother Robert French MacFarlane (French being his mother's maiden name) was a notable inventor who between 1922 & 1951 had some 51 worldwide patents registered in his name for use with the production of Biscuits. The MacFarlane family felt a great deal of responsibility towards their local communities & employees both in Scotland & England to the extent that in 1926 Sir James & his brother George donated 22 acres on which was built the Canniesburn Infirmary. in 1960 John Ewing funded a lifeboat which was duly christened the “John & Frances Macfarlane”.
