A very appealing example, very nicely re-bodied in the 1990s to a high standard, being substantial, but at the same time light in appearance. Very recently, the car has been completely re-painted in a lovely shade of deep blue with black wings, with excellent black leather interior, a new hood and tonneau cover, also in black, all enhanced by correct fittings in nickel plate and a polished aluminium bonnet as well as a very well-suited rear-mounted trunk. The wheels & tyres are the correct straight-sided type, 33x5, adding to the overall authentic appearance of the car. Running nicely, driving well, and - for safety in modern traffic conditions - fitted with flashing indicators concealed within correct period lamps. A good all round car, nicely prepared and ready to go. MoT tested until July 2019 & topped off with very appropriate registration number, R-4578.

Snippets Sir Butt - A Multi-Faceted Gentleman,
The 1st owner was Sir Alfred Butt (1878/1962) Clerk, Theatre Impresario, Director of Food Rationing WWI, Cons MP for Balham/Tooting & in retirement a Racehorse breeder & owner! His first job was with Harrods & by 1898 he was Secretary to Charles Morton at the Palace Theatre (Built in 1891 for DOyly Carte), upon Mortons death in 1904 he became Manager & in 1906 MD which he held until 1920. The acts that he managed included the scandalous Maude Allen - she danced barefoot & barelegged as Salome, even worse was when Lady Constance Stewart Richardson a member of the aristocracy - appeared on stage bare legged! Sir Butt also introduced: Anna Pavlova (Russian Prima Ballerina), Fred & Adele Astaire (stage & screen) & Buster Keaton (Screen). During WWI Alfred Butt was the Director of Food Rationing & was Knighted for his services to the Ministry & to Charity. In 1922 he became an MP & in 1929 he was created a Baronet however, in 1936 details of the Budget were leaked - scandal ensued as Sir Butt was rumoured to have benefitted financially from this, he denied any wrong doing but it was the end of his political career. In 1934 Sir Butt had purchased the Brook Stud from Sir Richard Garton and Sir Alfred & his son Kenneth branched into the World of Turf. Their homebred winners included Petition (stud from 1949/64), sire of Petingo, March Past & Petite Etoile; after Sir Alfreds death his son Kenneth continued the winning streak with Jacinth, Shebeen, Rose Dubarry, Fair Edelweiss & Flambeau. Sir Alfred married twice Georgina Mary in 1902 (died 1960) & Wilhelmine Wahl in 1960 in 1978 she remarried to Thomas Pomery 10th Viscount Harberton.
