particularly handsome car, in correct, honest and very sound condition, the
doors closing with a lovely click, and perfectly aligned, which is always a good
sign in terms of body structure condition. The paint and interior are both
authentic, showing age, useable and appealing. Features
include a full set of six Ace wheel discs, including those fitted to the twin side-mounted spare
wheels. With the last owner for over 30 years, perfectly
useable just as it is, but perhaps with some improvements along the way. The
engine has just been overhauled, with new main & big end bearing, new
pistons, new clutch, etc, etc, and the car will be offered newly MoT tested upon completion
of the work. Delightful.

first owner was Horace Edgar Bowles, an analytical chemist, who in 1919 was sued
for “Judicial Separation” by his wife Louisa who claimed that although
Horace’s income was some £1,000pa “in 17years he gave her only 4 dresses
& as they had no servants she had to do all the housework, look after the
children & do the washing, her life was one of worry, disappointment &
trouble”. The judge dismissed her
petition with strong words to the effect that “if a wife turned a gloomy
countenance on all family enjoyment ...... then she had only herself to thank if
the husband were sometimes a little indifferent.” It is not clear if Horace
& Louisa did divorce but after her death in 1958, Horace remarried the
following year (he was then 85) to Louisa’s younger sister – Agnes Michel
Vance. Horace & Louisa’s
eldest son Francis George was an MP & created a Life Peer in 1964, he later
became Captain of the Yeomen of the Guard and Government
Deputy Chief Whip in the House of Lords. In January 1945 GHG20 was with her 3rd
owner – Serge Charles Bentley a businessman & inventor who with Israel
Pomerance patented several inventions relating to machines used for the
harvesting of potatoes & other root crops, namely conveyor belts.
