Footnotes

  • Coventry cycle manufacturer Singer & Co Ltd first ventured into the world of powered transport in 1901, making tricycles and motorcycles. By the end of the Twenties decade Singer was the UK's third largest motor manufacturer after Austin and Morris, yet by the mid-1930s was operating at a loss, necessitating a financial reorganisation. Singers of the 1930s were well respected and the 1939 models resumed production after WW2, one of them being a developed version of the four-seater Nine Roadster. Powered by Singer's 1,074cc overhead-camshaft four, the Nine Roadster was progressively developed and in 4AB form boasted telescopic dampers, hydro-mechanical brakes and coil-sprung independent front suspension.

    This example spent the first 12 years of its life in Scotland before moving to Bicester in 1981. In January 2002 it moved to Doncaster and was purchased by the present owner in August of that year. Sine then the car has attended various local classic vehicle rallies, show and steam fairs, but has been SORN'd since 2102 because the owner is no longer able to drive. We are advised that the engine runs and that the transmission and electrics were in working order when 'KOL 723' was last used in 2009, while the seats were re-trimmed in red leather in 2011. The car comes with an old-style logbook.
