Description
 
An attractive, coachbuilt MKVI, in sound condition, not used for some time, but now mechanically re-commissioned and driving well. The body is sound, and the engine runs very nicely, sounding healthy. As we understand it, this car is the first built of its later popular ‘long wing’ design, being well balanced and handsome to many eyes. An interesting period in the cars history is a period spent in Africa, for which we have a copy of an article taken from an RREC magazine of 1975. Fundamentally good and sound, complete & correct, fitted with five new tyres, MoT tested until Jan 2015. Chassis Nr. B272LJMGJ 473. £22,500. Snippets: An Italian Architect & “The Father of Wireless”. Delivered to A.H. Currie at Moulsham Lodge, Chelmsford previously the lodge house to Mouslham Hall, built in 1564 & then re-designed in 1730 by the Venetian architect Giacomo Leoni for Benjamin Mildmay, the 1st Earl FitzWalter. The Mildmay family were the dominant family of the region from the mid 1500s to mid 1800s but by 1784 the Mildmay direct male line was extinct, in 1809 Moulsham Hall was demolished. The surviving Dowager FitzWalter relocated to her other seat in Dogmersfield & the family estate was sold in its entirety in 1830. In 1899 Guglielmo Marconi “The father of wireless” opened the world’s first radio factory in a disused silk in Moulsham. A.H. Currie’s father, Robert, was a gentleman dairy farmer with a prize winning herd of Friesian cattle. In 1915 he took delivery of a new Fowler-Wyles single cylinder plough - designed to appeal to those farmers who preferred their plough to be in front of them! John Fowler went on to built a monster machine capable of some 6 furrows! In the 1960s B272LJ had a journey of a life time with Andrew Ayres through East Africa – a copy of the article he wrote is with the car.
