This example presents in excellent condition, understood to be an older 1980’s restoration, which has stood up to the test of time well. The car was first registered in the UK to a Mrs. Meadows in 1938, who would retain ownership of the car right through the war years until 1957. Mrs. Meadows is believed to have travelled to Norwalk, Connecticut by Steamship in 1938 to purchase this car, so it was evidently in enthusiast ownership since its very early years. Our vendor purchased the car in 2016 and has enjoyed it ever since, reporting it is a joy to drive and the rear rumble seat is always popular with his grandchildren. The car is supplied with a current V5C registration document, older buff logbooks, period owner’s manuals and brochure and a handful of invoices. Presenting in a very attractive colour scheme of a light eggshell grey with red interior, this would make an excellent addition to any collection and you’d be very unlikely to bump into another one.
