Bernie,

There is a good article about a 1924 SPA in "Restored Cars" magazine no.28 dated May/June 1978. I met the owner many years after reading it and after he had sold the car and he spoke of it with great admiration. Let me know if you would like a copy. Certainly a very worthwhile project.

Sorry Gavin

I have not looked here for a a few days. Right now I do not have very much I can tell you.

I still have to see what is left of it myself. As soon as I can I will post some photographs and details. Right now I tend to be very involved with my 1923 Packard Restoration.
