11259 JT 668 Speed 20 SB Mulliner

In a letter dated 27 October 1987, Michael O’Callaghan (AOC 1321) responded to the publication of the first SB Register to say there wasn’t much information on his old car JT 668. He thought the Northampton firm of Mulliner built the all aluminium drophead coupe body. He had the car in the late 50s but broke it up, with some of the parts still around. The engine was in his SA with an ANV 110 gearbox. The wheels, gearbox lamps etc went to Mike Pratt. The body and chassis were cut up. Having only cost him twenty quid from a breaker’s yard he got four years motoring out of it, including passing his test, but no-one could weld the cracks in the aluminium. Influenced by Jock Stephen, he concentrated on his SA models from then on as the ifs was no good and the SB was too heavy. He later got the Charlie Chace SA VDP, 9811.
