Introduction

Kulraj Salh
COO

This is the oldest car I’ve consigned to date and I thoroughly enjoyed the visit and getting to know the little classic with its family (David, Neil and Louise).

It’s clear the car has been loved and enjoyed over the years and isn’t that what classic car ownership is all about. It’s sometimes sad when things move on, but it’s a part of life and this little car now needs to find its next loving owner to maintain her well into her centenary and beyond.

This is a car to buy with your heart and not purely for investment purposes – it’s a car to put in your garage and tinker on during a Sunday afternoon. There’s no doubt she’ll frustrate you at times and cause you a few headaches but it will all be worth it.

These cars shaped the cars we see on our roads today – who knows, perhaps BMW wouldn’t be around today if it wasn’t for this little car.

This auction listing was written from information supplied by Kulraj after meeting David the owner, and having visited and photographed the vehicle.

Meet the owner

If you have any questions then please drop them in the comments below and Neil or Louise will answer as soon as they can.

David has owned the car for around three years (he’s sitting in the back of the vehicle) and unfortunately is suffering from Alzheimer’s, so his children Neil and Louise have made the tough decision with him to sell his classic vehicles, and move them on to new custodians to enjoy and maintain.

David has maintained the car over the three years and even had an engine rebuild completed to make sure it keeps running well. It’s a car that he’s always wanted, having been lucky enough to own a number of classic cars in the past he added this one to his collection too.

Exterior

This car is an incredible 86 years old this year – and even after all these years she still looks beautiful in her blue coachwork in the winter sun.

Wheels and Tyres

Original wire wheels are fitted with cross-ply tyres showing a good level of tread – please see the images and videos for the condition.

Bodywork

The bodywork on the car is in good condition considering her vintage status. There was no rust visible upon viewing the vehicle, and as shown in the media, the shut-lines and panel gaps across the entire car are good and in line with the age of the vehicle. There is a dent on the nearside bonnet, this has been pointed out in the video review.

Paint

Of course the car has been painted many times over the years. The current finish is good and usable – there are the usual imperfections as can be seen in the video footage, particularly on the leading edges of some of the panels where they have been caught and nicked over the years.

Glass and Trim

Both are in good condition as can be seen in the media pack.

Interior

The interior is showing correct wear and patina in line with the car’s age.

Seats and Carpets

Dark blue seats with black carpets. The seats across the car are in very good condition with no rips or wear showing.

Dashboard

In correct condition for the age of the vehicle – no issues noticed, although we think the speedometer might be reading a bit too high as it certainly didn’t feel like we hit the 30 MPH that was showing when we went on a test drive.

Steering Wheel / Gear Stick

Again in the correct condition for the age of the vehicle – no issues noticed.

Mechanics

Engine and Gearbox

The car started from cold and there was no smoke to be seen. It did take a second turn of the key with a bit more throttle to help the car settle down and idle correctly.

Suspension and Brakes

The car handled very well on the road, it was a more comfortable ride than I was anticipating and easily handled the four of us on a short run. As expected, it’s a noisy vintage car but gave a good smooth ride as a passenger.

The Drive

The car performed without fault on our short trip. Going through the gears, and the engine pushing all 4 of us along. Of course, there is no synchromesh, so it’s up to the skill of the driver to double-clutch, match the engine speed and then engage the correct gears – Neil may need a little more practice as can be seen in the video ? The car idled both cold and hot with no issues during the run.

Electrics and Other

Neil and Louise inform us that everything on the car is working as it should, and you can see from the videos that all gauges on the dash are working fine. Modern electric indicators have been fitted to the car, the old semaphore signals are still present but not currently operational.

History and Paperwork

s you have read, Neil and Louise are selling the car due to David’s health issues – he will be very sad to see it go but knows it now needs to move on to its next custodian.

Please see the images to review all the invoices and paperwork with the car.

The car is showing just over 404 miles.
