A delightful car. which has been with one owner for the last thirty years. during which time it has been loved. enjoyed and cared for. Being of a lightweight ‘Weymann' style construction. the car has a relatively lively performance by 20hp standards. and aside from that is driving very nicely. with a lovely gearbox. light. precise steering. good brakes. etc. making it a pleasure to use. Cosmetically good. without being too smart to enjoy in a relaxed fashion. being green to the bonnet. with fabric covered body in a slightly greenish hue. with black painted wings. all in good order. and the interior in tan leather. in very nice condition. Correctly fitted with 20" wheels and Dunlop Fort tyres all round. A nicely useable example. ready for the upcoming season. MoT tested. serviced. ready to go.

Chassis No. GVO60. Reg No. GC 3593. £32. 00.

Snippets – The Mysterious Miss Lamb: Delivered to one Miss. M. E. Lamb about who I can find absolutely nothing! Her address in 1929 was that of 55 Melbury Court of Holland Park / Kensington. London. Melbury Court was constructed in 1926 to a design by Francis Milton Cashmore (1892/1971) who is perhaps best known for his Shell Mex building situated on The Strand. London. The location of Melbury Court is on the site of what was originally known as Cope Castle created in 1605 for Sir Walter Cope. the estate was inherited by his son-in-law Henry Rich who renamed Cope Castle as Holland House (Rich was created Baron Kensington & later beheaded by Cromwell). By 1768 the original estate of 500 acres had shrunk to just 200 acres & was purchased by Henry Fox (1st Baron Holland). On the 27th Sept 1940 the great house was hit by 22 bombs during a 10 hour raid & was largely destroyed. miraculously most of the library & its contents escaped. The estate remained in the Fox family until 1952 when it was sold by Giles Fox-Strangways (6th Earl Ilchester) to the GLC. The name Melbury is taken from the Strangways-Fox seat in Dorset – Melbury House. birth place of the pioneer of photography Henry Fox Talbot.
