A really nicely constructed, totally appropriate body built by Horsfields of Halifax in 1987, replicating the Barker barrel-sided design of the 1920s, including correct detail such as the double curvature doors with beaded edges, attractive, horizontally and vertically divided windscreen with suitable rear view mirrors, all well proportioned and authentic looking, really do make this car an attractive proposition. This replaces the second saloon body, fitted in the late thirties, which itself replaced the original Myers & Burnell saloon. The car is very sound, clean & tidy, comes with a full, nicely made set of wet weather gear, including side screens, correct set of lamps including Barker dipping headlights and various other characterful touches. The engine is running sweetly and the car drives well. The large hood allows for plenty of space inside and excellent visibility due to sizeable rear windows. Included with the car is the original logbook from 1925, issued by York Borough Council. To be offered prepared, serviced and newly MoT tested.


Chassis No. GPK4 Reg. No. DN 8197

Snippets: Milburn’s Moth
The first owner of GKP4 was Capt Anthony Milburn of Rufforth Hall who was a scion of the Milburn shipping & colliery family. In the late 1800s the family concern Milburn & Co had offices in London, Cardiff & Newcastle and were said to have the 5th largest fleet in the world, indeed they owned in excess of 35 vessels with all bar 5 being built on the Tyne! Capt Milburn was an earlier flyer and owned his own de Havilland DH.60X Moth G-EBRZ, in 1927 whilst on a sightseeing tour with Mrs. Dorothy E. Ellison the engine stalled and crashed, Mrs Ellison was killed and newspapers of the time reported that Capt Milburn lost both of his feet. In 1930 the Captain divorced his 1st wife Dorothy citing “the alleged misconduct of his wife with a man named Morton” and in 1932 he married Vera Barrett – who was related to the poetess Elizabeth Barrett-Browning. Captain Milburn died in 1941 aged just 50 years old leaving an estate of £185,869; in 1944 was on war duty his son, Peter was killed leaving a widow and a 2 year old son. In the 1970s GPK4 was with Fuad Majzub who had a considerable collection of classic cars - his son remembers driving GPK4 around a field after the saloon body (which was in poor condition) had been removed – it was intended to be rebodied as a barrel-sided tourer by Robinson.
