Bodied by Park Ward as a 'Single Coupe' in 1930. very attractive. well proportioned and in ideal condition cosmetically to use and enjoy. being smart all round. with nice paintwork. excellent leather interior. good. easy to operate hood. smart chromework. etc. etc. A delightful little car. compact. attractive and very well maintained. Relatively few years ago the car benefited from an engine overhaul. new cylinder head. exhaust manifold. kingpins overhauled. a complete re-wire. and much more besides. all documented in a large file of paperwork. which also includes an old buff logbook & various historical documents. The fitting of an overdrive unit has further improved an already lovely car. which runs sweetly. drives extremely well. and in fact was driven about 160 miles to us just recently. A lovely little car. ready to use and enjoy.

Snippets: Cory-Wright & Alice in Wonderland
Ordered by Sir A. Cory-Wright a scion of the London firm of Wm. Cory & Sons (Coal Factors. Steam Ships. Railway Wagons & Livery). The company was founded in the 18th Century by William Cory. one of his grand-daughters. Ann Maria Cory was married to Harry Liddell whose sister Alice Liddell was the original Alice In Wonderland written by Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (better known as Lewis Carroll). The deep pink rose. “Rosa Xycoryana” is named after Reginald Cory. who was the benefactor of Cambridge Botanic Garden. A later owner of GSR3 was Clifford White. Senior Surgeon of the Samaritan Hospital in Marylebone which was opened in November 1934 by Lord Moynihan with HRH Princess Arthur of Connaught present. During WWII GSR3 was used by the religious order of “Little Sisters of The Poor” at South Lambert; (the order was founded in the 19th Century by St Jeanne Jugan. Rennes. Brittany). In 1949 GSR3 was bought by Wing Cmdr P. Hancock who during WWII had flown Hurricanes & Spitfires. he later received a DFC for his “outstanding leadership” during this time.
