A rare & eminently useable Edwardian Motor car.
This Machine was supplied new to Australia & indeed resided there most of its life. The dash mounted dealer Plaque proclaims that J. Phigarkerly of Hyde Park Sydney were the sole agents for Australia.
A massive stem to stern restoration was done on the car about 10 years ago & it has since then seen very little use. The current owner treated it to a full going over costing some £7. 00 about a year ago with Vintage car specialists Tattersalls of Halifax for which there are bill son file.
The car carries lovely Rois Des Belges style coachwork & is equipped also with a detachable surrey style roof designed more with a view to keeping off the sun rather then the rain we surmise. The engine is a four cylinder unit of some three litres or so & is in rude health having been fully rebuilt. The car trots down the road with alacrity & whilst not being my choice of vehicle for dual carriage ways. it is more then at home on B roads.
To the interior is sumptuous buttoned beige leather in really fine condition. For ease of use the car has been fitted with an electric starter but may equally easily be swung on the hand crank. The ignition is of the dual variety starting on coil & switching manually to magneto once the engine is running.
In typical Edwardian fashion. the car is festooned with brass wherever one looks. It sits on wooden artillery wheels with beaded edge tyres to the 4 corners. Driving the car is a pleasure with an easy four speed gear box & a reasonable degree of retardation from the brakes. It is a large imposing car & garners its fair share of attention wherever it goes. The car needs nothing & is ready for extended use & rallies.
