Featured in the Automobile magazine in the 1980s, this characterful vintage light car has in the last 3 years been given sympathetic maintenance and restoration to areas deemed to need attention as listed above.


Described as being in good all-round usable condition, the current owner “does not think that a new owner will need to spend any money on it - everything that has recently needed doing has been done; going any further would spoil the originality.”

Since the mileage recorded on the 2012 MoT, this car has travelled circa 1500 miles since. The car is largely original, complete with telescopic shock absorbers as standard for the 1930 Singer model year, with uprated electrics and indicators, as well as a Klaxon type horn

HISTORY of the model

Introduced at the London Motor Show in 1926 with an 846cc two-bearing splash-fed engine - including an advance in design over that of other small car producers at the time – of an overhead camshaft, peak power was 16.5hp at just 3250rpm, perhaps resulting in being a little less fussy than an Austin Seven of the period. With a 3-speed gearbox, four wheel braking came in 1928. The clutch is by inverted cone mechanism, front suspension by a pair of quarter elliptic front springs, a pair of half elliptic springs at the rear, again with a pair of rear telespcopic shock absorbers, gravity feed fuel tank, and 6 volt electrics. By 1928 production of the Singer Junior was the single most important model of the Singer range.
