A largely original example of this rare little sleeve-valve, four-wheel, drophead coupe.

In recent years this car has formed part of a large collection and as such has received little or no use and an element of recommissioning is to be expected to return it to the road once again. Your inspection pre-sale is welcomed and encouraged to appreciate the potential of this rarely offered motor car which is strictly sold as seen.

  • Rescued from long term storage in 2012 before joining this collection ( href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4uMAx7gPLR0" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4uMAx7gPLR0)
  • This car has never been restored but merely maintained in good order although at some point it has been re-trimmed to a good standard and the bodywork side panels have been re-sprayed
  • The alloy floor panels together with the bonnet and dickey lid are correct and original unpainted alloy
  • Rear-wheel brakes only with the unusual feature of four sets of shoes in each drum. One set being operated by the foot brake and the other by the hand brake
  • Tyres are high pressure beaded edge with four brand new Waymaster Cord and tubes fitted to each road wheel
  • The speedometer is a Swiss-made Jaeger with the odometer showing approx. 14466 miles (not warranted)
  • The suspension is by four quarter-elliptic springs still protected by factory original leather gaiters
  • The engine is a four-cylinder, sleeve-valve unit with hemispherical heads and alloy pistons of approx 1200cc swept volume
  • Unusually for a car of this age, it is fitted with its original coil ignition rather than a troublesome magneto
  • The clutch is a cork-lined unit running in oil and the gearbox is a three-speed crash type
  • Fuel feed is by gravity from a front tank and the car runs on unleaded fuel as there are no valve seats in the engine
  • We understand that the car was running and roadworthy when it joined the collection in 2014
  • Most recent MOT 2014, Buff Logbook, BSA instruction manuals and more in file
