For sale, 1925 Pramhood oily rag car.

 

This car has been well documented as the Streatham chummy and has been kept in a museum like state for decades. I bought this car 18 months or so ago  and undertook the work to make it road worthy whilst staying in its oily rag state. The engine was rebuilt by previous owner with Ian Bancroft. It starts first turn and runs very strong and happy. The chassis was damaged on the car so we lifted the body complete, straightened and restored the chassis including totally recovering. The brakes we overhauled with new linings cables etc. I did around 80 miles in the car last year at the Scottish club rally. The car took first in the vintage class. I also did some local rallies etc last year. An oily rag car is NOT for everyone but this car is the everyone stops to look round at a show etc. It attracts a lot of attention. This must stay as an oily rag, that is the value and interest of the car so it is only for sale to those who are looking to keep it as it is. I have plenty more pictures if anyone is interested in the car. Our asking price is 15,950 or near offer to the right home. Tony 0116 2867522
