c.1947 Douglas 348cc T35
Registration no. 610 UXO
Frame no. T35S 1357
Engine no. T35S 6208
Douglas commenced post-war production in 1947 with, naturally enough, a flat twin, though unlike the vast majority of previous models the T35 mounted its engine across the frame. The former was of unit construction, while the latter displayed even greater innovation with its swinging arm rear suspension controlled by torsion bars, and leading-link Radiadraulic front fork. Its advanced running gear endowed the Douglas with excellent handling and steering characteristics, while the willing engine, although not as quick as some 350s, could propel the ‘Duggie’ at up to 70mph and return 60-plus miles per gallon. The T35 was produced for little more than one season before being superseded by the updated MkIII. Partially restored in 1984, this example was last on the road around 7-8 years ago, since when it has been kept in dry storage. The machine is reported as requiring a wiring loom and rear light but its mechanical condition is otherwise unknown. Sold strictly as viewed, it is offered with Swansea V5 registration document.
