History.
Ordered new by CT Lyles of Dewsbury kept for five years and sold to WH King of London.
Post war it was owned by RP Sherry M. B. I. E in 1945 Then in 1957 Lt Flynn.
Four years later it was acquired by the Vicar of Southwick, A small village in Hampshire which was privately owned by the Barthwick Naughton family.
The car was laid up for long periods during the war in dry storage and by the early seventies required recommissioning.
It was bought by Sylvia Sinanan and moved to another Vicarage in Fareham to be restored again for their daughters wedding.
This work was entrusted to a small however highly skilled company Church Green engineering who brought the car back to as new condition just in time for the Vicars daughter in 1982.
Since this time she has been stored in heated garages and used sparingly.
I am a retired engineer and have changed the engine oil every year and carried out regular servicing.
She sits on Michelin tyres which are part worn however not perished.
New tubes were fitted last year.
In general the car drives well and is very reliable never once breaking down in my ownership.
The body and ash frame are very sound however there are minor blemishes and some micro spotting which is only cosmetic and confined to the paintwork only.
There is no rust.
All matching numbers car.
The car is open to any inspection in a warm garage with an inspection pit.
She is road legal and can be driven anywhere with confidence.
Please do not hesitate to call for a chat because I am very much an enthusiast thinning out a private collection.
My son would like an Austin seven so we may take a small vintage car in part exchange or as I have several RR cars similar to the 20/ 25 I may consider anything of interest either vintage or classic.
We live in Chapel-en-le -frith in the High peak.
