I have enjoyed Bertie (3CP162) since early 2011. Acquired from the Real Car Company, Bertie is a 1937 Sports Sedanca by H.J. Mulliner (4-5 seater with a smaller passenger cabin than those with folding additional seats; this allows a more elegantly sloping rear). The engine was rebuilt and the car rewired under the careful ownership of George Peake in 1994. The body was bare-metal resprayed at that time in two-tone metallic gray. The interior is entirely original and in excellent condition. Bertie drives well at 70-80 Celsius with good oil pressure. The central lubrication system works throughout, as does the hydraulic ride adjustment. All gauges work except the clock, which George says keeps good time but I havent understood how to jiggle into action. The trafficators have been disconnected and discrete turn signals fitted at the rear. The tool kit is complete and I have the original manual as well as an extensive file, pretty much from new. The car has two-tone Ace discs all around, and the Firestone tyres were new in 2011. The mileage is 123,000 from new. We have driven Bertie to Paris and back three times without a problem, and he goes out at least once a month for shorter tours here in Switzerland.

Work I have had carried out include:
Thorough cleaning and refurbishment of the radiator; this was costly due to the difficulty of dismounting and remounting the unit, but dropped the running temperature by > 10 degrees C
Replacement of the temperature measuring system
Rebuilding of the dynamo, alternator and regulator, together with a partial rewiring
Respraying of the rear as well as both rear wings to correct some cracking to the paint
Discretely fitting electronic overdrive, using the foglight knob to actuate; this allows effortless cruising on the splendid French Routes Nationales at 100 KM/Hrs. (I have the original drive shaft, so this can be reversed)
Rejuvenated black leather on the front seats with Swissöl cremes, and had a strip behind the drivers shoulders replaced. Some restitching of the backrest panels was also carried out by a saddler. Maintaining the leather was the only thing the previous few owners did not apparently understand.
A KM speedometer was introduced (a proper one with RR logo) according to Swiss law

The car was inspected by Steve Lovatt from Ristes at the RREDC Swiss Sections 2015 Greasy Fingers Day, and he said it was in very good order.

Not concours but very close, and a reliable, quiet PIII. The car is near my home in Basel, has been looked after by specialist mechanics, and always in a dry garage.
I want CHF 200,000 for Bertie.
With kind regards,
James Cunningham
