The Singer Roadster is a nine tax horsepower open 2/4 seater sports-tourer automobile manufactured by Singer from 1939 until 1955. It was launched in March 1939 as an open version of Singer's Bantam saloon and using many Bantam parts. After less than six months production was suspended for the duration of World War II then restarted with the engine moved forward, more interior space and other minor modifications. The Roadster was upgraded to the 4A model in 1949 with a four-speed manual gearbox. The short lived 4AB and 4AC models were released in 1950 followed by the 4AD SM Roadster in 1951. Singer Roadsters competed with the MG T series. The flowing lines of the car made it one of the most attractive roadsters in the market. The last cars were made in 1955. A few special Singer 4A car bodies were made by coachbuilder James Young.

This pretty 4AD roadster is presented in green with cream trim and wet weather gear. First registered in February 1954, this example was purchased from new by the family and transferred to the daughter in 2005 and has been in professional storage of late. It has been regularly started and as such the chassis and running gear are in good order though the body could benefit from some minor attention. Supplied with the original bill of sale. The electrics are all functioning well and but for recommissioning this would make a fabulous weekend roadster, inexpensive and great fun.

*Salesroom notice - the registration for this example has been retained and the application for a new registration number and V5 is in process, no v5 is available at time of sale but will be forwarded on to the successful bidder once received.

Guide price £8,000 - £12,000
