History          
Year 1934
This car lay in Arians scrapyard owned by Maurice Kemp for many years. When Arians closed down the car was fortunately saved and ended up with Neil Snatt, who hand made a new grill surround from photographs. Neil completed most of the restoration before he left Zimbabwe, when the car was sold to Colin Lyle of Bulawayo. Colin got the car running and used it for a number of club events before a broken oil pipe put it out of action. Sold to Peter Flanagan, who completed the restoration. This is a very rare car.
