Chassis no: D3392
1920 Vauxhall D type tourer by Jackson Jones & Colins of Sydney
Chassis number: D3392
Registration number: IB993
Supplied new to Australia, this car was bodied by Jackson Jones & Colins of Sydney as an open tourer & retains its original coachwork to this day. The car was bought back to the UK in the 1990's & extensively restored in Wales. Later on it went through the hands of noted Irish collector Jim Boland prior to being purchased by the current owner.
The robust 4 litre engine gives this car plenty of go & makes for a big powerful vintage tourer. The car sports paintwork in good order in a fetching shade of turquoise along with black wings & a polished aluminium bonnet. To the inside is Black Buttoned leather with aluminium floodboards to the front & black carpet to the rear.
The aluminium dash has a full quotient of period instrumentation with a central C.A.V. (Charles A Vanderveld) switchbox. Similarly the lamps are also C.A.V. model E units. A very patinated shell fuel can is mounted to the running board as are dual sidemount spares. Wheels & Tyres are of the thin beaded edge variety. A full length hood easily erects for inclement driving conditions. The car comes to us with a good assortment of literature, bills & a UK v5 document.
This is a car that starts easily, cruises well in modern traffic & has an unstoppable "Go anywhere" feel to it. These early Vauxhalls were quality items many of which went to the colonies due to their ability to effortlessly cover high mileages in trying conditions.
