Details Specification Condition Report

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.

  • The Mk VI of 1953 featured a new grille, revised combustion chambers, indicators instead of semaphores, and a two-spoke steering wheel
  • Water-cooled inline-four, side-valve, 1265cc; 37.5hp. 4-speed manual, fully synchronised manual gearbox, 67mph
  • No history, but appears to have spent time in Belgium or Holland - has a Belgian battery and Flemish writing on an ice-scraper
  • Attractive little drophead in light green. Once reinstated would make a great Goodwood car
