Footnotes

  • A motor manufacturer from 1907, the Birmingham Small Arms Company acquired Daimler in 1910, soon abandoning its own range in favour of a Daimler design powered by a Knight sleeve-valve engine. When BSA resumed post-hostilities car production in 1921 it was with a quite different type of vehicle: a 10hp light car powered by a 1,075cc, v-twin engine made by Hotchkiss. The model sold well, only disappearing in 1925 when rivals Morris bought Hotchkiss, though BSA later acquired rights to the engine for use in its front-wheel-drive three-wheeler. Designated 'TW-33-10', a version of the latter appeared in 1933 powered by a more refined 8.9hp, four-cylinder, sidevalve engine of 1,075cc, which was also used in the four-wheeled, though still front-drive, 'T9' model introduced that same year.
    In 1935 BSA revised and restyled its front-wheel-drive four-wheeler, which by this time had been named 'Scout'. The latter was soon superseded by a 10hp (1,203cc) version for 1936 and this was progressively developed over the next few years, gaining outboard front brakes, a wider track, longer wheelbase, steel disc wheels and a third crankshaft main bearing.
    This particular BSA Scout was renovated by the current owner approximately 18 years ago and its engine reconditioned three years ago, since when the car has covered around 2,000 miles. The engine rebuild included regrinding the crankshaft, white-metalling the main and big-end bearings, fitting new piston rings and valves, and reconditioning the oil pump and replacing gaskets and seals. Described as in generally good condition, with fair/good paintwork and fair interior and electrics, the car is offered with old-style logbook, current MoT/tax and Swansea V5 registration document.
