An attractive example. in good. useable condition following a great deal of expenditure by the last owner of 25 years. amounting to about £40. 00. Work has included a full engine overhaul. new cylinder head. complete re-paint . e-wire. and much more besides. The work is documented in a large file of papers which is included with the car. The car drives nicely. is good and sound. looks smart. and is lively and willing on the road. We have just successfully reinstated the original registration number. after twenty something years of the car running round on an ‘age related' number. which is very pleasing!

Chassis No. GTL68. Reg No. CYX 434. £42. 00.

Thomas Lavington-Jacks (1884/1966). Resident-Director of the Anglo-Persian Oil Company (renamed as BP) was stationed in Tehran from 1926/35. During his time abroad Lavington-Jacks amassed an important collection of Iranian antiquities. including an Achaemenid silver bowl dating from 4th Century BC (the time of Darius III who was defeated by Alexander the Great). The bowl was displayed in 1935 at The Hermitage in St Petersburg and in 1998 was acquired by the British Museum. GTL68 remained with Thomas Lavington-Jacks until 1944 when she was acquired by J.
