Sir,

Mr. Neve states that he bought this car in 1933 in Manchester but the photograph he sent in is not, in my opinion, the car in question.

The Cyril Paul car was built in 1923-24 and was registered for road use in Glasgow, GB 3634, by Cyril Paul, 220 Adelaide Road, London NW3, on Sept. 7th, 1925 and run in a re-bodied form, i.e. four-seater, until 1926.

The body was reverted back to a two-seater in November, 1926, possibly whilst the property of Mr. George Hepworth of Messrs. Hepworth and Grandage Ltd., from whom I purchased the car in August 1933, Mr. Hepworth having owned the car from 1926 to 1931 and again in 1932-33. I parted with the car in 1934 to a Mr. Bill Walker of Ilkley (in exchange for a Brough Superior SS100), who only ran it for a short time and then it stood at the rear of Messrs. Sharpe & Griffiths Ltd., Baildon, Yorks. for a considerable time.

Last year I rang Mr. Griffiths, who has long since retired, and he quite clearly remembered the car being there but could not say definitely what happened to it; possibly it was sold along with many other vehicles for scrap at the outbreak of WW2.

Incidentally, I still have in my possession the original Log Book which obviously enables me to quote exact dates, etc., a photograph, a copy of which I possess appeared in the Nov. 16th, 1949 issue of The Motor in an artIcle under the heading “Made in Scotland”; it shows Cyril Paul in action Shelsley Walsh in 1924. 1 hope this letter of interest to the many people who have macre enquiries through various magazines regarding this once famous car.
