A freshly completed, well executed VDP replica, with all new coach-work, built using a Tony Robinson frame, panelled in aluminium by McFarlane. As well as the body, paint, upholstery, windscreen, hood, tonneau cover, etc, and all aspects of the body being new, all bright work has been re-chromed and the car looks particularly attractive in its Burgundy livery with beige leather. Besides this, a great deal of restoration work has been carried out on the chassis and mechanical aspects of the car: The engine has been overhauled using a new cylinder head and new cylinder block, a new clutch has been fitted, the car has been re-wired, the radiator is re-cored, brakes re-lined, dynamo and starter rebuilt, wheels rebuilt and fitted with new tyres and there is a new fuel tank and fuel pump. As you will have gathered, the car is in excellent condition, driving nicely, and to add to it all an overdrive has been fitted, greatly benefitting high speed cruising. There is a file of invoices with the car, confirming various expenditure over the last few years as part of the restoration process. Do we need to say more?


Chassis No. B179EJ Reg. No. CLB 330

Snippets: The Triple As
B179EJ was ordered by W. F Angliss of Nr 8 Castello Avenue in Putney about whom nothing is known! The 2nd name on the chassis card is that of W. F. Allanson of Torquay who, together with his wife Florence, ran and owned a successful meat business. The Allansons’ had their own winning herd of cattle which supplied both their meat factory and their butcher shops in order to ensure their clients (hotels, restaurants and the public) could be assured of quality products. The 3rd and final A is that of F.W. Anderson of E J Cooke Ltd based at Trinity Works in Manchester. The firm date from the late 1800s and started as manufacturers of leather goods for saddler and harness, by the 1920s the firm were importing tougher walrus hides to use in the cars and aeroplanes. E J Cooke’s adverts of the 1940s show the variety of presswork and machining they do in leather, felt, rubber sheeting, fibre board, cork, paper, “in fact everything but Metal!”.
