Known History

A two-door, four-seater Convertible version of the marque's Bantam Saloon, the Singer Roadster was first sold in 1939. The traditional body comprised alloy panels fixed to a wooden frame. Powered by a 1074cc SOHC four-cylinder engine allied to three-speed manual transmission, the newcomer was reputedly capable of some 65mph. Suspension was by leaf springs all-round and the drum brakes were mechanically operated. The model re-emerged virtually unchanged after WW2, and remained so until the 4A variant of 1949. This featured a Solex carburettor in place of the previous SU and featured a four-speed gearbox. The 4AB of 1950 sported a new chassis with independent coil-spring front suspension and a mix of rod/hydraulic brakes.

 

Finished in Red with matching upholstery, this particular example is described by the vendor as being in "good" condition with regard to its engine, gearbox, bodywork, paintwork and interior trim. Treated to a new wooden frame as part of a twenty-year long restoration, the Singer is understood to have had little use since returning to the road in 2000. Boasting a new hood, side screens and tonneau cover, it is being sold complete with: old-style logbook; restoration photos; service manual / sheets; sundry invoices; old tax discs and MOT certificate valid until August 2013.
