Year 1928
First delivered to India, the car was imported through Cape Town to Rhodesia in 1936, where it was registered in Bulawayo. This car was one of twelve known in the world of which only three were fitted with the body style carried by this car. Owned by S. Jansky in 1959 when the car was used in the 1st Reliability run to Umtali, owned by M.M. Gill of Salisbury in 1970. Several previous national rallies to its credit including the 1966 event that ended in Cape Town. Later passed to Eric Glasby in Bulawayo before being acquired by Richard Dismore of Johannesburg. Stored for much of its life, a rebuild was unneccessary and only a re-paint in its original colours was carried out. Sold to Vincenzo Nicolosi in 2008. The car was apparently sent to Vincenzo's father in Italy for restoration.
