This delightful and very original looking VCC dated single cylinder car goes very well indeed and will be ideal for early car rallies wherever you live. It drives well and is surprisingly powerful for a single, no doubt due to it having mechanical inlet and exhaust valves so it revs well. The three speed and reverse steering column mounted gearchange is easy to use with the gears being nicely spaced for comfortable progress over a variety of terrains. The brakes are also quite good so you can go down hills as well as up them! The four place (five at a push) swing seat tonneau bodywork is in good condition with a nice paint finish, lovely button leather upholstery and a good hood. As the price of Brighton cars continues to rise early Edwardian cars are becoming increasing popular as they are more readily affordable, still provide all the feel of pioneer motoring and let you take part in just about every early car event apart from the London to Brighton Run. NB one of the pictures on my website shows this actual car in 1912 which shows it still has its original registration number.
