The Dellow, built near Birmingham and deriving its name from those of KC Delingpole and RD Lowe who sponsor it, has achieved widespread popularity as a trials car, notably in the hands of Walter Waring, who runs his in somewhat modified form, known as a WHW Dellow.
Recently two new models have been added to the Dellow range, the MkII and the MkIII. The MkII is similar to the MkI, but has a new tubular chassis frame with coil-spring suspension of its Ford back-axle. It is available with Ford Ten engine in blown and unblown forms, has a 6 ft 11 in wheelbase, and a dry weight of 11 cwt with adequate weather-excluding equipment. The Mk.III is an occasional four-seater, a foot longer than the MkII and weighing one cwt more. It, too, uses the Ford Ten engine and other Ford components, which ensures reliability and good servicing facilities. The price is £841 10s, inclusive of pt, and this sounds like a very useful addition to the field of small, economical sporting cars. The proof of the pudding is in the eating, however, so we await a MkIII Dellow for road-test with keen anticipation. The London agents are the Gordon Garage, at Dulwich.
The next race in the The Motor Sport Clubs Trophy Contest will be run at the 8-Clubs Silverstone Meeting on June 7th—a Club fixture that promises a very fine day’s sport. Admission by ticket only, from any of the organising clubs.
