PA1298 was imported by Lanes Motors in October 1934 and after being fitted with a body by C.F.S. Aspinall delivered (new?) to H. N. (Bon) Reeve in May 1935. Bon competed in the car over the next three years with considerable success.
It was also owned by “Mini-wizard” Peter Manton who raced it, taking a class record at Rob Roy Hill climb in 1948.
Laurie Rofe owned it and wrote about the car’s scintillating performance when fitted with the most developed “head” – it had three in various states of tune, giving more credence to its provenance as a racing car.
Barrister Peter Martin next owned it, before John Liebert then to the present owner.
