Ariel were based at Selly Oak in Birmingham in 1929 and had perhaps the most distinguished designers in the industry, namely Val Page, Edward Turner and Bert Hopwood, each of whom would become famous. Ariel were at the top of their game, with their Square Four imminent, when Val Page penned the twin-port, overhead-valve LF, using the chassis of Ariel's side-valve LB and creating, in effect, a lightweight Red Hunter. UV 5601 is in excellent condition, having been rebuilt to standard form between 2011 and 2013, and is in excellent running order, a super lightweight for events such as the Banbury Run. It is complete with a V5C for its London number, a history file and the relevant copy handbooks.
