Lot 631: c.1933 Panther 490cc Model 90 Redwing

Collectors' Motor Cars, Bonhams (10 September 2005)

Phelon & Moore (P&M) was founded in Cleckheaton, South Yorkshire in 1904. The firm was renowned for its fondness for engines with inclined cylinders, and its new 500cc overhead-valve model, designed by Granville Bradshaw and introduced at the Olympia Show in 1923, remained faithful to the concept. This was P&Mís first ĎPantherí model, and the name would later be extended to the entire range. For 1931, the traditional Panther Ďsloperí was revised as the Models 90 and 95 Redwing, gaining a new 490cc engine and a three- or four-speed gearbox, and continued in this form, fundamentally unchanged, until the end of the 1930s. Presented in highly original Ďas purchasedí condition, this Model 90 Redwing was bought from Elstree Film Studios around 25 years ago and is reputed to have appeared in films. The machine is offered without documents.
