SALE AGREED

A very smart, attractive Dr’s Coupe with dickey seat, benefitting from much attention in the 2000s, including a full engine overhaul, re-wire, re-paint to a high quality, complete re-upholstery in leather, and fitted with new hood and carpets. The specification includes P100 ‘bullseye’ headlamps, a nice pillar-mounted spot lamp, twin side-mounted spare wheels, and a large trunk on the rear. Fitted with overdrive, from which the car really benefits, particularly for long-distance cruising. In 2014 the car won second prize at the R.R.E.C Annual Rally at Rockingham, in the same year, completed a 1,000 mile UK tour without problems, and the following year participated in the 20hp Grand Alpine Tour, covering 2,200 miles, again without drama or trouble of any kind. In excellent order, and ready for its next adventure.

Snippets: The Tragedy of the Pullars of Perth
Delivered to Robert Morrison Pullar (1875/1930) of Brahan, Perth (known as Morison to save confusion with other family members called Robert). The Pullar’s can be traced back to the late 1700s with John & Isabella Pullar whose grandson John Pullar was the founder of Pullar dye & textile works from which the family fortune was made. Morison Pullar was an early (and keen) motorist and there is a record in the Dundee Courier of 1924 of him having to pay a fine to the courts! His home of Brahan had been built in 1898 for his parents, (Rose & Rufus Pullar) and designed by leading Arts & Crafts architects Bedford & Kitson of Leeds, In February 1901 Morison’ cousin Frederick Pattison Pullar died a heroic death– several hundred people were skating on Airthrey Loch when the ice gave way, Frederick rushed to the aid of those in the water & managed to save 3 lives; he then went back to assist a young lady but before help could reach them they sank, he was only 26 years of age. Robert himself died in 1930 aged just 38 & GVO25 was re-registered in his brother’s name – Major John Lindsay Pullar OBE who, during WWI served with the 4th Black Watch and himself died in 1950 aged 54. Members of the Pullar family include a Lord Provost, several OBE holders, and are linked to the Sandeman (Port) and Morison (Printing & Accountancy) families of Scotland. During WWI & WII many members of the family served in the Army primarily with the Black Watch & the 4th Volunteer Battalion & the 6th Battalion.
