1921 Napier T75 Roadster
This car is of 1921 manufacture and, although little is known of its early history, this is a Napier which found its way overseas. It was returned home in the late '90s to England from South Africa, where it is reported it had been used as a hot air balloon support vehicle for some years. The car now sports impressive four- seater gentleman's roadster coachwork, looking for-all-the world prepared for the currently fashionable Peking-Paris jaunt. Finished in British Racing Green livery, it is generously equipped for the serious motorist with nickel CAV headlamps, Lucas bulb horn, rear mounted spare wheel and 24 inch road wheels with new beaded edge tyres. Driving instruments include Napier clock and speedometer, Lucas amp meter and a Tapley gradient meter.
This rare and head-turning vintage sports car, which boasts an impressive turn of speed, the 6.2 litre engine requiring only the minimal use by the driver of the four speed centre-change gearbox.
