This 1929 16.9 drophead coupé is reported as having bodywork, glass, trim and wheels/tyres to be very good and the two-tone green and black paint as good. The interior was re-upholstered 12 years ago and the tan seats, door cards, dashboard and carpet are still in very good condition, with the hood described as excellent. Engine staring and running is said to be very good and it displays good oil pressure (and is charging well): the radiator has been re-cored. The running gear is either good or very good: our vendor says gearbox, brakes and axles are very good, the suspension being good. Electrics are generally good. A good history file comes with the car, ideal for VSCC motoring in all weathers.
