Footnotes

  • BSA resumed post-hostilities car production in 1921 with a 10hp light car powered by a 1,075cc Hotchkiss v-twin engine. 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. In 1933 a version of the latter appeared powered by a 9hp, four-cylinder, sidevalve engine of 1,075cc, which was also used in the four-wheel, though still front-drive, 'T9' model introduced that same year. Restyled but retaining essentially the same engine and running gear, the second of these four-wheel designs – the Scout two-seater sports car - debuted in 1935. Described by Autocar magazine as 'undoubtedly one of the best-looking small cars in existence,' the Scout progressed through a further four series but did not re-emerge after WW2, BSA having decided to concentrate on producing motorcycles only.

    This particular Scout was purchased as a collection of parts and between 1971 and 19991 was restored from the chassis upwards by the current owner with assistance from various specialists including Vintage Restorations, who overhauled the instruments. Used for local rallies and a holiday in France, the car has always been dry stored and maintained as necessary. Described as in generally excellent condition, this charming post-Vintage sports car is offered with sundry restoration invoices, old-style continuation logbook, current MoT/tax and V5 registration document. An electric radiator fan and SU electric fuel pump are the only notified deviations from factory specification.
