car description

Registration number: 676XUY VCC Dating Certificate no 188 A regular London to Brighton runner. This little start has the 7hp twin cylinder engine which makes it go really rather well. It has been successfully campaigned in a number of events by the current owner who feels the need to now pass it on as he approaches his 90th year. The car has been lovingly & competently maintained to ensure it starts perfectly off the handle. Starting procedure is very simple; to wit: Turn on fuel Tap, tickle Carb, pull engine through two suction strokes, put magneto switch on & then give a mere nudge to the starting handle & it fires right up every time. A bottle of Neetsfoot oil & a simple brush comes with the car as the owner advises dressing the clutch prior to use each time as it makes the take up on the clutch far less abrupt & allows one to pull away displaying a modicum of mechanical sympathy. (Neetsfoot being made from the foot & shin of a cow, but not the hoof, for those of you not in the know.) The car is a three speed machine with reverse. The gears are sequential in line. Brakes are reasonably efficacious by the standards of the day, but please use the hand brake as the primary brake wi
