Dellow MK 1 - 1172cc Trials car - 2nd car in production (chassis built using ex WW2 surplus rocket tubes in the general A-frame form of an Austin 7 chassis!!)

Reg number - LGC 193 chassis number - 102 / 2 / 50 (as can be seen in the photos)

Originally black - now currently stripped aluminium ready for polishing or painting to the colour of your choice.

Original front and rear fiddle brakes operated by external lever on drivers side.

Car is known to the Dellow Register as can be seen by the official register listing showing it as the 2nd car of the main production run. First registered on 13/3/1950 with the original buff log book and new V5 present. The car has been in the family for over 40 years!

It is a Wade supercharged version and therefore has the notch in the firewall on the N/S to suit the supercharger fitment, this was the first Dellow to have this set up. Currently it is fitted with a good running 100e engine and e93a type 3 speed gearbox. Running a single carb at present for easy running but will also come with a steel fabricated exhaust / inlet manifold and twin SU set up plus and aluminium Aquaplane inlet manifold so your choice. Runs well and can be driven (short distances!). (It can be seen and heard running on: titled: Dellow Mk1 for sale LGC 193 link below).

The chassis, axles, brakes, prop tube and all space frame elements have been stripped, renovated, rust proofed and painted and are in very good condition throughout. New rear quarter elliptic springs are fitted with new aluminium spring mount castings, which fit inside the rear ends of the chassis tube. New bronze rear axle castings, U bolts, hangers, bushes etc fitted to the rear and I think new king pins in the front axle. Original steering column which is 10" longer than the ford original and very hard to find plus steering wheel. Also has an original Dellow rev counter which is also a very rare item.

The car comes with the original fuel tank, radiator cowl, aluminium wings, bonnet, side panels, firewall, internal panels and flooring. The wings and side panels have been repaired around damaged areas to a very high standard and look very good and original. I had planned to replace the bonnet at some point. Also comes with original windscreen frame and stays.

It comes with 6 wheels which have been stove enamelled silver and have old stock 'new' tyres fitted to the 16" rears. The other set of 16" rears will come with some very heavy duty trials type tyres and the 17" front again with 'new' road type tyre as can been seen in the photos, although not fitted.

The car also comes with various parts as can been seen in the photo and includes headlights, rear number plate light, side lights, instruments, coil, shock absorbers, internal seat back, hood and interior trim which are idea for patterns.

The car just needs final assembly, wiring and general sorting before getting out on the road or hills! I believe that this could now be done without even having an MOT..! It will be a very nice historic Dellow when finished.

Car is located in Bucks and I would like it to be picked up within a week of the auction end.
