SALE AGREED A handsome car, of razor edge design, nicely proportioned, and with attractive ‘trouser crease’ wings and letter box rear window. We understand that the car has been museum stored in California since 1968 - well over half of the car's life! There is still some American paperwork in the car's file. The coachwork is in good, sound condition, and although the paintwork has lost its shine and the car is somewhat mature cosmetically, is perfectly useable as is. The seats have been neatly re-covered in grey cloth, and the internal wood has an unusual ‘straight grain’ finish. Running nicely and to be prepared and MoT tested prior to sale. Please note that the registration number shown in the photographs is the car's original, but we have so far not been successful in having this reinstated. As a result, the car will be issued with an 'age related' number.



Chassis No. GHO16 Reg. No. DYX 77

Snippets: Philanthropic Builders & Saltona Blood Tonic
The first owner of GHO16 was Charles Herbert Ross, a builder located in Moseley, Birmingham. His father William Ross was a wealthy property owner who in 1914 after the death of his wife, Anne, deeded a gift of 4 houses to the Blue Coat School in Birmingham. The school was founded in 1722 by Rev W. Higgs in order to educate, clothe and feed children from the poor families in the city and is still in existence today with the motto “Grow in Grace”. When William Ross died in 1917 his estate was in excess of £249,000 which Charles Ross was instructed to administer being “natural & lawful son and one of the next of kin”. It is not known when Charles Ross died but within two years GHO16 was with Leslie Kingsford Osmond of Barnoldsby Hall, Lincolnshire. The Osmond family firm established in 1854 was in the field of animal nutrition & medicine – they made sheep dips, cattle feed and their famous “Saltona” Blood Tonic – a cure all! Leslie Osmond was twice Mayor of Grimsby – 1926 & 1927. Leslie and his son Kingsford Richard Osmond both died in 1946, their grandson & son was just 8 years of age when this double tragedy occurred, Andrew Osmond later became the founder of the satirical publication “Private Eye".
