Phelon & Moore (P&M) was founded in Cleckheaton, South Yorkshire in 1904. The firm was renowned for its fondness for engines with inclined cylinders, the latter featuring on its new 500cc overhead-valve model of 1923. This was P&M's first 'Panther' and the name would later be extended to the entire range. Post-WW2, Panther added medium-weight 250/350cc models with vertical engines to the range, but its largest models retained the inclined engine that had been around since the dawn of time and served as the frame's down-tube. A range of Villiers-powered lightweights and a scooter were added in the mid/late 1950s, these and the old long-stroke singles being the only types on offer after 1961. First of the Villiers-powered two-strokes were the Models 10/3 and 10/4 of 1956, which used the 8E three-speed and 9E four-speed engine/gearbox units respectively. The engines were carried in swinging-arm frames featuring Earles front forks, the latter at first glance looking just like telescopics. The Model 10 Panthers were last listed for 1962.

This Model 10/4 Panther has the correct Villiers 9E four-speed engine/gearbox unit. The machine was restored in 2009 and appears to be in remarkably original and correct condition. Unfortunately, all documents relating to it have been lost.
