A handsome, spacious and correct saloon, which has benefitted greatly from various attention in recent times, including a new cylinder head, re-cored radiator with new calorstat, new clutch and ring gear, starter and dynamo overhauled, attention to brakes, complete re-upholstery in lovely, soft but durable brown leather, new headlining, carpets, roof covering, etc, and much more besides. Many thousands of pounds have been spent on the car over the last few years. The car is equipped with correct lamps, etc, is in sound condition, running well. Ideally now needs painting to really sharpen up the appearance, although the car is perfectly useable 'as is' for the time being. All in all, a very appealing and good looking D-back, with character and charm. Chassis No. GBA8 Reg No. ALW 20. Snippets: The Soames, Baden-Powell, Churchill & Peel connectionGBA8 was ordered by Capt. Arthur Granville Soames, a nephew of the Lincolnshire brewer Arthur Gilstrap Soames. In 1919 Uncle Arthur Soames (aged 65) married a widow Agnes Helen Peel (age 59) she was a twin daughter of Sir Robert Peel who had served as Prime Minister. When Arthur Soames died in 1934 his estate of Sheffield Park was inherited by his nephew Captain A. G. Soames who that same year divorced his 1st wife Katherine & married his 2nd Annette Constance Jardine (widow of Robert Jardine)!. Annette and Arthur also divorced a few year later with Arthur marrying his 3rd (and last) wife in 1948. In 1912 his sister Olave married Robert Baden-Powell who was 32 years older than Olave. Robert Baden-Powell was the founder of the Scout Movement and his wife Olave was the Chief Girl Guide. In 1947 Arthur Christopher John Soames (son of Arthur) married Mary Spencer-Churchill, she was the youngest child of Sir Winston Churchill; in 1989 Charlotte Soames (daughter of A C J Soames) married William Peel (3rd Earl Peel) the great-great-grandson of Sir Robert Peel, making the familes related by marriage & blood! The family estate of Sheffield Park had been purchased by Arthur Gilstrap Soames in 1909 after the death of the 3rd Earl of Sheffield. During the 18th Century, the grounds of Sheffield Park were landscaped by Capability Brown & the house remodelled by James Wyatt, by the time Arthur Gilstrap Soames bought the property it had deteriorated and A G Soames spent a considerable sum on the restoration of the estate - during WWII Nissen huts sat on the once immaculate lawns! After 50 years with the Soames family, Sheffield Park estate was split up with the National Trust acquiring the grounds which are today open to the public. GBA8 was later registered to the Adelphi Iron Works in Salford; now part of the Fletcher Engineering Group, specialists in the installation & commissioning of textile finishing machinery. A further 15 years saw GBA8 being purchased by Brigadier A Matthews who was stationed at Bishton Manor in Salop which during WWII was used by H.M. Royal Regiment of Artillery. The Brigadier moved to the West Indies and GBA8 was left in storage for several years until it was bought by Dr. J. Dobell who in turn sold the car to Arthur Cyril Smith, Rector of Louth, who from 1960/76 was the Archdeacon of Lincoln. Whilst Arthur Smith was still Rector of Louth he wrote the book South Ormsby Experiment which was described as -an Adventure in Friendship.
