A lovely example of what many consider to be the most stylish coachwork design to be used on the 20/25 chassis the Gurney Nutting three position Drophead Coupe, of Owen design, hence the term Owen Sedanca. The car is in lovely condition, having undergone restoration work in the early 2000s, including a full engine and gearbox overhaul, a new cylinder head and re-cored radiator, since when it has been carefully maintained, as well as recently being fully re-wired, fitted with an overdrive unit and new wheel discs. The paintwork is high quality, much of the chrome has been replated, the coachwork is very sound, and overall the car is an excellent example, which benefits from Continental tours a few years ago, which it completed successfully and reliably, aided of course by the overdrive, which is a very worthwhile addition for use of this kind. Comes with a history file showing various work done and an impressive toolkit. Winner of various club events, including first in class at the RROC National Meet in the late 1980s. Much admired and it is easy to understand why!..Chassis No. GXB15 Reg. No.AXM 280..Snippets: Chocolatier of Harrogate.GXB15 was delivered to W. Evans of Datchet House, Datchet the house was built in the mid 1740s by the Earls of Kilmorey who kept the house until 1911 when it was purchased by Sir Lionel Cust; he died in 1929 but Lady Cust remained at Datchet House until 1932 when it was sold. It is unclear as to when Mr Evans acquired Datchet House but during 1932/35 the house was occupied by the American film star Laura la Plante who had the top floor (Datchet House was 3 stories tall) removed & the roof lowered!! From 1936 to 1937 GXB15 was with D M Holmes of Whitestone Ironworks in Huddersfield the company was founded in 1850 by William Cartwright Holmes & their speciality was Gas Works. From 1937 to 1944 GXB15 was with Fritz Butzer a Swiss orphan who having learnt his tradecraft as a baker, confectioner & chocolatier arrived in Bradford in 1907. By 1920 he had settled in Harrogate, opened his 1st specialist Tea Shop known as Bettys to this day who Betty is remains a mystery & in December 1921 Fritz changed his name by deedpoll to that of Frederick Belmont! By 1937, Bettys had become so successful that Fritz had premises in Leeds, York, Bradford & Harrogate the interior of the York premises are inspired by the Queen Mary liner on which Frederick & Claire had journeyed on its Maiden Voyage. The Belmonts adopted two children one of which was his sisters son Victor Wild & upon Fredericks death in 1952 Victor (age 29) became MD and in 1962 the firm of Bettys acquired Taylors better known as Taylors of Harrogate purveyors of fine teas & coffees. Between 1944 & 1961 GXB15 was with Mr. Rhodes of Shrewsbury and a Mr Sharman of London prior to the car going to New York with Ernest Bundy an undertaker & keen motorist. Ernest kept the car until the early 1970s when it was sold to Harvey Aronoff of Spring Valley, New York who kept GXB15 for the next 30 years..
