Lot 051: 1912 NAPIER T46 15HP FIXED HEAD COUPE

Van Dijk Collection, H&H Sales Limited (3 October 2005)

PLEASE NOTE: Since the catalogue went to press we have been contacted by ex-Beaulieu curator Michael Ware who has kindly informed us that he remembers Richard Evans of the Manx Motor Museum building this car up in the 1960's. His assertion that he is "pretty certain that all the parts are genuine Napier or period" would seem to have been substantiated in period by the Veteran Car Club's dating inspection (9th December 1970) though, Mr Ware also recalls the possible use of some vintage bodywork in its ingenious construction.
