A delightful, undisturbed and handsome car, which was with father and son from new until 1978, and with just one owner since then. It comes with some fabulous original paperwork from 1934, being discussions between H.J.Mulliner and the first owner. This really is a very rare opportunity to acquire a wonderfully correct 20/25, very well cared-for, excellent cosmetically, structurally and mechanically, fitted with a new cylinder head in the mid 1990s, running very sweetly and newly MoT tested. Fabulous, early paperwork and almost full toolkit complete the picture. The doors click shut as if the car was built yesterday! Absolutely lovely example, hard to describe and almost impossible to repeat. MoT tested until October 2013.
Chassis No. GKC29. Reg No. TJ 7000. £55,000.

to Broughton Park in Preston for use by Alfred Eric Dickson (solicitor), his son
Capt Anthony Chambre Dickson served with the Royal Artillery & in 1941 was
killed whilst on active duty in Malaysia. The
Dickson family through marriage are related to the brothers Peter (butcher)
& Simon (sculptor) Yates who in the mid 19th century decided to
go into a partnership which saw them open up the first “Yates Wine Bar” in
Preston. The firm remained in family
ownership until the early 21st century when it was acquired by the
Laurel Group (part of the Icelandic Robert Tchenguiz empire). Other family
connections include the Grundy’s who owned collieries including land in the
Isle of Man which was where Simon Yates’ wife Jane Youngblood was born.
The reason the name Broughton may sound familiar is that in 1941 Sir
“Jock” Delves Broughton (11th Baronet) was tried for the murder
of Josslyn Hay, the 22nd Earl of Erroll who was his wife’s lover
whilst they lived in Happy Valley, Kenya. Jock
Delves was acquitted & the story became the basis for the film White
