WK 8047

1929 Supercharged 4 cylinder Front Wheeled Drive Car No. 12064 Ch. No. 7275 Engine No. 7675 Reg: WK8047. First registered Jan 1929, to a Mr. R. Cecil in London. Uniquely fitted from new with Smiths auto searchlight type C270, extra long range fuel tank and non standard racing instruments; including Brooklands calibration tag. Poignantly as this picture was taken on Remembrance day, its last pre war owner, a Royal Naval Officer, placed the car in storage but never returned for it. The car was barn stored until the 1960s when it was restored and is considered to be one of the most original FWD cars.
