    We have on offer for you today a very early example of the great 100/4 model, which was built on the 2nd May 1955, and it has come from Buckinghamshire for today's sale from the family of the late owner. Mr. Gregory bought the car in 1967, a total of some thirty four years, and although they cannot warrant the mileage of 22,000 miles the family do believe it to be genuine from new. It is described as being an excellent driving restoration project and a much loved car and in fact comes with a box of assorted spares which will help the new owner on his way.

    The history file also contains the V5 registration document and a current MOT until August next year and it is being sold with the highly valuable cherished registration number RON 949.

    I purchasee this car at the tender age of 18 or 19 in 1958 or 9 and sold it on to a friend in about 1962.

    I would be interested to learn it's history since then and details of the current owner. Thanks.

    Spam prevention question (must be answered):
    The father of jokes about warm beer and smoke escaping from wires is Joseph Lucas. Lucas died of typhoid after drinking infected water in Naples in 1902.

    What disease did Lucas succumb to?
