1904 Siddeley 6hp Two Seater
Registration no. EL 259
Chassis no. V169
Engine no. 192/6C
- Considerable research has been carried out in recent years, using original manufacturers records, regarding the accurate dating of Siddeley and Wolseley motor cars, particularly those constructed in the 1904/1905 period. Although these records refer to car no. V169 being supplied to King and Son, there is no note within the records showing the date of order or delivery.
At the present time, with information currently available, recent researches have proved inconclusive in determining the precise date of manufacture or delivery of car no. V169. At this stage there is no documentary evidence available supporting delivery of the car on 15 November 1904.
It should be noted that should further information come to light suggesting that this car was manufactured after 1904, there is perhaps no car more eligible than V169 for grandfather rights to enable continued participation in the London to Brighton Veteran Car Run.
