1919 Vauxhall 30/98 E series Velox Tourer.

Chassis number: 209

Registration number: NC1372

One of the ealiest known 30/98 chassis to exist.  This Velox tourer is in simply impeccable condition & is being sold due to the advancing age of the onwer.

The car is in simply first rate order having recently had a new cylinder head/block installed along with high compression domed pistons.  Since then the car has covered but few miles & is still in the running in process.

The maroon over black paint in in perfect condition thoughout.  To the interior is burgundy buttoned leather along with matching carpets.  A large brass klaxon horn is found under the bonnet.  As when new this is a rear wheel brake car needing a little circumspection when driving at speed as the cars performance is possibly a little ahead of its brking capability.  Make no mistake, these are extremely rapid cars with 100 MPH being attainable when fitted with light bodywork.  30/98 Vauxhalls were widely regarded back in the day as being the first super cars.

The car sits on correct beaded edge narrow tyres making for vary light & direct steeering at speed.  The body in minimalist & light making for a very sporting car well able to show equivalent Bentleys' a clean pair of heels.  The 4.5 Litre engine starts instantly & settles down to an even idle with high oil pressure & running cool.  The 6 ply tyres sit on correct Rudge Whitworth beaded edge rims.

To the dash is a full quotient of period instrumentation in addition to a St Chrisopher fro good luck which may well be needed if exploiitng the cars full perfomance.  A full length split mohair tonneau cover & hood complete the ensemble.  Charles A Vanderveld (C.A.V.) switch gear is fitted to the dash board.  Adorning the radiator is a genuine original Vauxhall Griffin with beautiful relief detail to it.

All in all this represnets a superb rare high perfomance edwardian that would not be out of place in any collection, or may simply be used for spirited road use.
