1914 Napier T64 WW1 Ambulance

Registration: UVF244

Chassis no: 13124

Engine no: 20282

Engine size: 3191 CC 4 Cylinders

 One of three known survivors of 100 Napier type T64’s built in 1914 as part of a War office order to Napier for ambulances and dispatched to Flanders during WW1.  The current WW1 ambulance body has been painstakingly recreated & is in brand new just finished condition. This Napier  was donated to the war effort by the Norfolk based family owners  and returned to them at the cease of hostilities.  They had a gun bus body built on it in about 1920 by Mann Edgerton of Ipswich.  It wore this for many years prior to being returned to its original state as delivered to the War Office.

Mechanically the car is in superb order starting readily on the first turn of the handle.  It has just had a full service & set up by a noted Silver Ghost expert & as a result is in perfect running condition.

To the front is a comfortable bench seat with the driving controls falling readily to hand.  The rear is an open area with room for three stretchers, all covered by a brand new high quality beige canvas roof.

The Napier has a real period feel to it being one of the very few survivors & no doubt will appear in future period films of the era.  We have a period picture beleived to be of the actual vehicle surronded by a bevvy of war time nurses in khaki.  The Napier starts easily & drives beautifully with a decent turn of speed from the 3 litre engine.  Original lamps adorn the front & rear.  The lack of wear on the metal footpedals lead us to beleive it is a quite low mile chassis & it certainly feels like it when on the move.
