Vintage Miscellany

A sad 1930 Singer Junior saloon and a mid-30s 6-cylinder open Singer await new Owners in Essex. A vintage flat-radiator Armstrong Siddeley Fourteen saloon has been languishing in a Hampshire barn for many years. A one lady-owner Singer Le Mans 4-seater exists in Huntingdon. Reports from Guernsey speak of vintage engines and spares, a circa 1930 Adler, a vintage Morris-Cowley and about eight more...

Rumblings

This year's 68th Sunbeam MCC Epsom-Brighton Pioneer Run for pre-1915 motorcycles went off well. It was nice to see that four of the 297 riders were on pre-1900 machines and that there were only 18 non-finishers. The top award was won by Tony Batting (1913 Rudge Multi); the ladies' award went to Theresa Chatfield on a 1914 Rudge Multi. The 84th Motor Cycle Club London-Land's End Trial had 354...

Vintage Postbag

Sir, I was most interested in your May issue with an article on my old Belsize-Bradshaw car. The article is at least 90 per cent correct and I cannot quarrel with any of it but it has occurred to me that some of your readers might like to know, from the designers of these older models, the real reason for some of the drastic changes they have made and how technically sound have these changes been...

Veteran Edwardian Vintage

A section devoted to old-car matters ⁂ Sir, In reference to Harry Hawker's Mercedes-Sunbeam aero engined special — you say that after Hawker's death in 1921 the car disappeared. Well, not according to an article in the Riley Record of July 1934. I quote: "a representative of the Riley Record recently discovered what must be one of the biggest cars in everyday use, the car which is the property of...

V-to-C Miscellany

The Riley Register has announced the date of its Centenary Rally as June 29/30, at Coombe Abbey near Coventry. The ex-John Horsfall Aston Martin was, we hear, snatched just in time from foreign bidders and will stay in this country. Meanwhile two rare Steyrs are being fettled here. The Welsh Rally Retrospective, based on the Royal Welsh Showground at BurIth Wells, will take place on April 21/21...

A remarkable Sunbeam revelation

How Louis Coatalen copied a 1913 Coupe de L'Auto Peugeot for his 1914 TT cars It is accepted that the Sunbeam that won the 1914 TT, driven by Kenelm Lee Guinness, was a direct crib of the famous and successful 1913 Coupe de L'Auto Peugeot. Louis Coatalen, who had come to the Sunbeam Motor Company in Wolverhampton from Hillman in 1909, had shown himself to be extremely keen on motor racing. He had...

Factory methods of the vintage era

No. 15: Rolls-Royce Soon after this series was instituted we took a look at the careful and academical methods of construction which made Rolls-Royce cars what they were in 1928. Long before that, circa 1912, F. Henry Royce, yet to be knighted, had evolved his famous, or notorious, bumping-rig, for stressing Rolls-Royce chassis to extremes. It was said that a well-known American car was chained...

A section devoted to old-car matters Still More About Mercedes A few controversial points have arisen from the article "More About Mercedes" in our issue of last December. It might have seemed that pure benzole fuel would not have been permitted at Le Mans in 1930 in the days when this race was for sports-cars much closer to those you could buy than is the case today. In fact, this was one of the...

OUT OF THE PAST

OUT OF THE PAST ONE OF THE rewarding things about editing MOTOR SPORT is the arrival in the office from time to time of unusual snippets of motoring (and flying) items from the past. For instance, the other day Mr. Julian Brownridge of Chatham sent us some faded but fascinating photographs that had just come into his possession, relating to a coachbuilding concern that operated in Kingston-on-...
