This lovely early Edwardian car has just arrived and I am very impressed with it. It was built in Paris in 1906 by Martin et Lethimonnier et Cie who produced cars from 1903 to 1910. Close inspection tells you that it that it a good quality machine, it is stylish in appearance, it is obviously in very good condition and it is very smartly presented - so much so that last August it won the "Masterclass" trophy at the National Transport Extravaganza at Crich Tramway Museum - its curved wooden wings are a work of art in themselves!
Its Clerget designed 2.4 litre engine has four separate copper-jacketed cylinders with automatic inlet and mechanical exhaust valves, it starts very readily with one or two swings of the handle and settles down to a nice steady tickover, it has a three speed and reverse sliding gear gearbox controlled by a conventional right hand lever and a complete set of five really handsome matching Powell and Hanmer brass lamps.
The car is every bit as good a car as its appearance suggests - the engine pulls well, the gearbox is easy to use and the steering and brakes inspire confidence so as well as looking good the car is really nice on the road. Edwardian cars are very good value for money and early cars like this are very desireable. NB the car is being sold with UK registration number BF4403.
