A nicely correct and undisturbed example of the sought-after 4½ litre big bore, small boot MK VI, with a lovely air of originality to it, both visually and in the way that it feels and handles. Of particular note is the undisturbed and very appealing original brown leather upholstery, and the interior as a whole is delightful. Sold by us over twenty years ago, since when it has covered just 2,000 miles, and a total from new of just 103,000. The accompanying history file, which is quite considerable, in the form of a box file and two folders, includes various maintenance invoices, letters, etc, a long run of MoT certificates, tax discs and various correspondence. We also have the original buff logbook from 1951, showing the first and subsequent owners and in addition to all of this the car comes with a correct handbook, service manual, a parts list, and is complete with an impressive set of tools, large & small. Serviced, prepared, driving very nicely and offered newly MoT tested.


Chassis No. B386MD Reg. No. WRE 356

Snippets: Isaac Cumberbatch, The Miner
Isaac William Cumberbatch (1888/1971) started his mining career in 1901 aged 13 when he started work as a colliery fireman in Longton. In 1911 Isaac emigrated to Malaysia and from 1911 to 1914 were he rose to becoming the Under Manager for the Cowie Harbour Coal Co at the Silimpopon Mine in British North Borneo where he had 1,000 labourers directly under his supervision. He returned briefly to the UK and after marrying in 1915 he return to North Borneo where he remained until 1917 when ill health saw him return to the UK. Once Isaac regained his health he returned to work and by 1925 he was with Shelton Iron, Steel & Coal Company at a starting salary of £850pa with house & coal allowance which was soon increased to £1,000pa due to his efficiency. From 1934/46 he was General Manager at Sneyd Collieries, from 1947/50 he was the area manager of the National Coal Board; in January 1950 he was awarded an OBE and that same year he became Chairman of the West Midland National Coal Board. Isaac finally retired in 1955 after being awarded a CBE in the New Years Honours List and having celebrated working in the national and international mining industry for over 50 years. After his retirement Isaac kept busy being a Magistrate, Chairman of the Bench and working with the St. Johns Ambulance Brigade. B386MD was with Isaac until 1963 when, according to the chassis cards, it was registered with Premier Mineral Water Co Ltd of Stoke on Trent.
