Ernie Constable’s 1935 Silver Eagle SG Special tourer – chassis number 13389

This car was restored by Ernie over 20 years ago as a retirement project with his own-designed lightweight fabric body, which gives the car a good turn of speed; always well maintained and a regular participant in local  AOC and VSCC events and AOC Internationals, and the 2000 USA Tour. A winner of many Specials Class awards.

It has now found a new home in Switzerland (August 2020).
