We sold this incredibly rare motor car in 2011 to a relatively local customer who has 50 years of business experience in the engineering sector. He has been totally meticulous with the Durant, taking it to an exceptionally high standard spending £35,000 on the car during his six years of ownership. The Durant has covered 3400 faultless miles during his ownership, the headline trip being a 1500 mile journey to Angouleme in Bordeaux and back for the cars 90th birthday. The Durant is in exceptional condition and is totally reliable and ready to go.
Expenditure on the Star includes over £6,000 on re-upholstery work, £9,000 on bodywork and paintwork and major mechanical work to the engine, rear axle and fuel system (re-conditioning auto-vac). Further works includes new windscreen glass, re-lined clutch, re-cored radiator and huge lists of detail mechanical works are detailed on the £35,000 of invoices. As a result of the careful ownership and improvements carried out, this is a wonderful opportunity to own a pre-war car that really has been prepared with no expense spared.
On the road the Star is lovely to drive with lots of power and a smooth gearbox and axle and besides its long trip
