That BSA three wheeler is very rare. I nearly got run over by one when they first started the MOT testing.

The brake testing was done by driving up the workshop and hitting the brakes whilst having a gauge sitting on the passenger floor.

I was oiling one of the floor jacks, the foreman drove up towards me and the brakes were useless, I jumped out of the way but he thought he'd hit me and got out white faced and shaking. :shock:

This is the tool.

If you like little white French Cars there is also this more conventional 1978 - Peugeot 104 berline
L’ensemble est dans un état correct mais pourra aussi nécessiter une restauration partielle.

September Classic Car Sale
Well Mrs Joan Smiths car sold for £3,740 at Matthewsons, and has been put into the September Classic Car Auctions Sale, Leamington Spa, 18 - 19 September, 2020.

Same details, new pool of buyers will it turn a profit? Probably not.

Same pictures! Image

Regards Neil
Sold this time today at Leamington Spa for £3,996.....Not the most fantastic punt, thats going to be a loss after fees/transport/time etc.

I wonder if he did just intend to take a profit or if he changed his mind after driving it? :(

Wouldn't mind a nice Humber Hawk or even better Super Snipe. Haven't seen one for ages though.

Just looked at those cars Neil, didn't realise so many of them still existed. We had a '58 Hawk and '59 and '60 Snipes, lovely cars. My wife used to work for a Rootes garage in Sevenoaks so we got them at very advantageous prices.

I take it you are referring to the Rootes Group ownership and design Peter?
