I enclose a photograph of a precisely similar body (even to the hinged half-section of screen) to the Fiat char-a-banc in your December issue, mounted on a Vauxhall chassis which, reputedly, had previously been the property of the Marquess of Anglesey.
We used to stay with a lady at Old Colwyn whose husband owned this vehicle for taking visitors round the “Sights”. Prior to this he owned a normal touring-bodied Star and I remember him whispering to me (in the coveted next-to-the-driver seat) “Now for a burst of speed” and then watching the speedometer creep up to 40 m.p.h. This would be about 1923/4, and the Vauxhall perhaps a couple of years later. It would seem that someone in North Wales had a good line in these conversions. I wonder how many were made, and by whom?—or was the same body put on another chassis?
