Low mileage since completion.

Purchased from an Estate when owned for approximately 40 years, restoration half done. Shiny nickel bits were mostly absent, presumably being re-plated but never collected. Having contacted all the local platers, the present owner resolved to replace them with all-new nickel parts

Re-cored radiator cost £2000 – expensive, due to the shape of these lovely pre-Hurlock brothers AC cars

Everything checked and rebuilt since it was not possible to refer to the previous owner's Estate

All new absolutely delightful leather upholstery by Julian Taylor even using original internals, and includes new mohair hood & side screens £6,500

New nickel : £500

Traditionally and beautifully coachpainted by hand with Craftmaster paint by the owner - a much experienced restorer of this period of car over 40 years!
