  1. Can't find it, are you sure you have posted the correct number
  2. Thanks for above E. A. was quite a successful artist in his own right and he designed some of the dazzle ships for the Royal Navy in WW1 . His work is sought after and he published several books on various artistic subjects. I thought that I saw the P1 in Lancashire mid - eighties but must have been a similar car. Its a striking automobile.
  3. Noted Leicester Co-op on the chassis card. The Co-op was the largest owner of Rolls Royces for many decades as they owned the largest funeral business in the U.K.
  4. Its only a few hours away and you can enjoy a bottle or two of Grolsch in the many bars whilst sauntering around the centre of Amsterdam red light area after dark. Its something not to be missed and the auction venue is not far from the city and with the Osenat auction being held the week before close to Paris which offers so much to see with a visit to the Folies Bergere which will give you wings just like a Red Bull. Your only here once so pack a suitcase and get going , the trains between cities in Europe are cheap and regular , accomodation is plentiful and inexpensive.
  5. There are two auctions in Europe shortly that have a wide range of cars that could interest collectors. Bonhams have a large auction in Holland and the cars and bikes being offered have low estimates or no reserve , many are from the U.S http://www.bonhams.com/auctions/25077/ The second is in France and although a smaller auction has some rare cars and automobilia rarely offered . http://www.osenat.com/html/index.jsp?id=92465&lng=en&npp=150 I like the 8 cylinder Delage and the quirky Voisin .
  6. Hi Bob Debatable and am open to correction. Thirty , possibly thirty two cars were built by the three owners of E.R.A over the years with only one being retired due to a fatal accident using the E.R.A chassis and engines varying from supercharged 1.1 litre up to 2.0 litres and then 2 litre Bristol engines during the period that Stirling Moss competed in F1 and giving Bristol a 1st 2nd and 3rd place in the 2 litre class at Le Mans . One two seater raced in the late fifties fitted with a Jaguar engine along with five V8 sports cars with E.R.A works modified Standard motor
  7. Almost certainly not inspected on either side unless customs decide to take a look
  8. You shouldn't have any. The VAT is only paid when importing cars into the E.U or U.K. usually the maximum charged is 5% of the value including freight and insurance costs. A M.O.T isn't required in the U.K. for cars made before 1972 I believe. It is a certificate to say the car has been tested and is roadworthy . There are no customs charges made by the U.K. so only any charges that are due are on the U.S side , easily found online . Any good shipping company your side will advise you. Make sure you are sent/given a V5 certificate from the seller which gi
  9. The pouch is to keep the mandatory fire extinguisher when doing events as the car is spartan inside, when not doing events the bag is taken off.
  10. You might want to contact Oliver Way who was building another and not sure if he still has it or not. He also competed in one he built with I think an Austin frame which he may do a deal with you but you need to ask him yourself. Best of luck. P.S. Oliver is a nice chap. http://www.oliverway.co.uk/gallery/
  11. Never did check out the BHP or was brave enough to take it above 3000 rpm. It does gets off the line well though with the four 2.5 litre pots making a glorious sound. Guy Lachlan competes it regularly and he is in the South of England whilst I now concentrate on competing my 2 Litre ERA. Guys Facebook page is : https://www.facebook.com/glachlan
  12. Moved on my 1914 Fafnir with a 1917 10 litre Hall Scott 4 cylinder engine fitted last year and it was a fun car that the new owner is continuing to compete.
  13. Looking for two or three bar front and rear bumpers and fixtures for the 1927 Buick master six
