SALE AGREED

Having just returned ‘home’ from Australia where it has spent its entire life until now, this car has benefitted greatly from the warm, dry climate and is consequently in very sound condition, unlike some of the home market cars, which tended to suffer structurally. The car is attractively finished in two shades of pale green, with very nice chrome work, excellent brown leather, lovely woodwork, superb headlining, working sliding sunroof, etc, and in very good running order, shod with excellent radial tyres which suit it well, enhancing the already enjoyable driving experience. SBA10 is a fine example with a background which adds an extra dimension to its appeal. Offered prepared, serviced, UK registered and newly MoT tested.


Chassis No. SBA104 Reg No KXS 404

Snippets: Australian Philanthropist
The first owner of SBA104 was Ernest William Richards Connibere (1862/1957) who, together with his brothers Charles (1864/1941) and Frederick (1868/1945) started the firm of Connibere, Grieve & Connibere in 1889, (Grieve died in 1899). The firm expanded & in 1920 the company was sold to Sargoods & invested their funds in commercial property. All 3 brothers remained as bachelors & their sister Emma also remained resolutely single. The Connibere’s financial donations enabled the building of a maternity wing at the Women’s Hospital, 3 orthopaedic wards at Mount Eliza Hospital, the support of various missions and much much more. In 1941 after Charles’s death Ernest & Frederick gave £138,000 to the Royal Melbourne Hospital for a nurses wing to be built in memory of Charles. In 1945 Ernest gave yet more money to Melbourne Mission, Ormond College and St Andrew’s Hospital and a kindergarten at Port Melbourne. Ernest was interview in 1954 and when asked about his life he declared that his one hobby was “service to my fellow man”, during their lifetimes the 3 brothers and sister had given over £750,000 to good causes, and as was only fitting upon his death his estate valued at circa £300,000 was given to charity.
