15 HP, 2720 cc In-Line 4-Cylinder Engine, 3-Speed Transmission, Shaft Drive Chassis No. 18281 One of the most interesting vehicles is this unique Garden car. Fitted to the chassis of one of Britain's foremost early auto builders, the hand-crafted wicker bodywork on this car was created at the Royal Institute for the Blind in Notthingham, England. The story goes that the primary function of this car was to gather flowers and to transport its passengers to fair-weather outdoor social events such as picnics, garden parties, afternoon tea or to use it as a spectator's perch during a fox hunt. This car shows signs of usage and has been exercised on a regular basis. It appears to have been restored in the 1970's, and features vintage Lucas Kings Road brass kerosene headlamps, as well as Landalite cowl lamps, and a rubber bulb operated brass horn. For safety a pair of auxiliary electric driving lamps were mounted to give a bit more dependable lighting. The wicker work is in outstanding condition with the seat pads easily removed for cleaning. One of the most unusual and recognized cars from this collection, we believe this car has great potential for invitations for display from around the world. Please Note: Vehicle is being offered with seller's confirmation.
