Lot 1


2000cc petrol original engine, 4 speed manual, 4wd, high and low range, this vehicle was recently discovered and purchased as a barn find. The owner who parted with it explained that it was a full nut and bolt restoration 10 years ago, it spent the next 10 years in the heart of the Wiltshire countryside on a farm undertaking normal daily farm duties. The car has a visible vin number and vin plate, full v5 and some documentation. The vehicle runs and drives after some very light recommissioning work.

Please note: The buyers premium on this vehicle is 10% (plus VAT)
Estimate: £15,000 - £20,000
Bidding ended. Lot is unsold.

The vehicle easily achieves 50 plus mph and cruises along beautifully. 

The history that comes with the vehicle include very rare items like the old road tax record in fantastic condition. The paperwork pack also includes a 1950 vehicle registration document the likes of which are very rarely seen let alone in fantastic condition like this one. 

The vehicle has covered just under 62,000 miles according to the odometer. Mechanically the vehicle is in fantastic condition and requires no welding. The engine and gearbox feel very tight and offer a positive driving experience 

The body work is corrosion free and in great condition, the paint job has patina and looks period correct, the station wagon back and door tops have flaking paint as to be expected but fit well with the age and patina of the vehicle. A true barn find. 

The interior is in true barn find condition.  Metal work is solid and seals, interior fabric is ripped in places and none matching but is likely the same basic seats as fitted 67 years ago. The dash is complete and working, 1 ignition key is present. 

Mechanically the vehicle has been fitted with a new battery, new distributor, carb overall and runs great. The car comes with its original manual starting handle although it has a 12v starter motor fitted that works great, just another small bit of history included. The tyres are old and perished but all hold air, the brakes work perfectly. There appears to be no leaks of any kind underneath. 



The wiring needs a small tidy up in places but works as expects. The very basic nature of this vehicle mean there are very few electrical components. Really a couple of hours spent tidying up loose wires here and there would make a huge difference to the appearance. 

Overall the vehicle offers something no modern car is capable of offering. British history at its finest, legacy and nostalgia. All this in a package that is entirely usable on modern day roads and byways. Simple fun and a slower pace then normal busy life. The senses alive with the sounds and smells of the 50s.
