Chassis number: 11608 Engine number: 30,1590 Registration number:YE3697 The Olympia show car new in 1926 shown with Hooper 2 door coupe Bodywork; the first owner was Lt-Cdr Montague Graham White. He sent the car back to Hoopers in 1937 for minor modifications such as installation of a sun visor etc. His exploits are well documented & he appears with the car in "The Golden Age of Motoring - 1900 -1940" by Roy Bacon. The car won 1st Prize at many Concours d'Elegance, including: 1927 Monte Carlo. Grand Prix plus Silver cup Cannes. Grand Prix plus Plaquettes plus Perrier Jouet Cup 1928 Bournemouth. Bainbridge Cup plus Grand Banner Le Touquet. Grand Prix plus Finest car all classes Southport. First Prise, cars over £1,500 1929 Brighton. Edlin Trophy 1930 Cannes. Grand Prix. Silver Challenge Cup The car has had a through restoration & is presented in excellent running order throughout with a light patina of use accrued over the past few years by the current enthusiast owner who used the car regularly as its maker intended. Indeed he was responsible for purchasing the car, restoring it & fitting the coach work we find on it today. The current body is a Park Ward 2 door foursome coupe, body number 3253 not dissimilar to the original Hooper body. It was built by Park Ward in 1929 & fitted to a six & a half litre Bentley. We have paperwork to trace the body all though its existence until today where we find it on the Hispano which it fits & suits beautifully. There are numerous photographs of the body being fitted to the car. The interior of the car is dark green leather to the front & rear seating areas, the rear seats being of the occasional fold down variety; the lether extending also to the door cards. Carpeting is a matching green with fawn wool headlining being fitted. There is a large easily operated sunroof in situ for summer motoring. Unusually, both the front & rear windows hinge open allowing for a huge volume of cooling air to pass through the cab for more tropical motoring. The dash board is a magnificent item made from Ivory & contains a correct set or the original requisite instruments. The various switches have a knurled finish & a delightfully tactile feel to them in operation. Meticulous in the extreme, the current owner supplies us with the following information: Modifications Temperature gauge made and fitted, on dash. Coolant expansion tank made and fitted. Radiator cap modified so mascot can be removed without breaking the water system. Electric fan fitted, behind radiator, with switch on dash. Electric fuel pump and filter, fitted above fuel tank. Float cut-off inserted in Autovac. Flashing indicators incorporated into side lights. Semaphore system retained. Switch between the 2 systems, under dash RHS. Flame-arrester fitted into carburettor air intake tube. Remote oilers fitted to rear trunnions, allowing access from under chassis (so access hole through body, un-necessary).
