1932 Speed 20 SA Four Seater Tourer By Cross and Ellis
This sporty tourer was dispatched from the Works on 29.7.1932 to Frank Hallams Dealership in Birmingham and then to Major GBM Beaumont of Surrey. Resplendent then as now, in shiny Black coachwork with red leather the car went on to have six subsequent owners.
Records show it turned up as a Barn Find in 1993 having been left in a North London lock-up garage since the mid 1960’s. Restored it changed hands for the last time in 2008 and has been much cherished by its current custodian. A stack of receipts and paperwork come with the car.
The in -line six cylinder engine with triple SU carburettors produces 87 bhp and easily keeps up with modern traffic over ninety years after its creation.
