PA 1294

 Midgets / Posted 1 year ago / 67 views

History:

Imported in 1934 without a body by Lanes and sold to Britannia motors.

Believed to have been bodied by Aspinall and Sons of Armadale at that time.

First registration was 202-133 in February of 1935 which it kept until 1945. Last registered in 1956 as HAU 301.

The original engine is now in PA 1298. The car sat on the PW register for many years as PA 1051 due to an error in locating the chassis number.

Current body is an open back Aspinall and the car is supercharged and has an ENV 75 Preselector gearbox. The car has just completed a complete ‘nut and bolt’ restoration. I am further researching its early history.

Interestingly all theses cars have the chassis number on the wrong side! To add to the confusion it carried the guarantee plate for PA 1291! The current engine is 835AP which I think belongs in PA 0485?
