- We are extremely grateful to Ken Woodham who has carried out further research on this vehicle.
The engine is of Abielle Manufacture, a small French engineering company who opperated from a Parisian suburb.
The brakes are currently set up for only two passengers, if rear passengers are required the brake rods require adjustment.
The car is ready to use, and has completed a 100 mile rally on the Isle of Man recently without issue.
Ken is happy to speak to prospective bidders or the eventual buyer about technicalities on this most unusual veteran motor car.
To clarify, the Veteran Car Company Ltd Dating Panel have not researched this vehicle. Robert Hadfield, whom is on the panel, carried out research for purposes of this catalogue description only.
