Replacing the original Barker Cabriolet, although we are unsure who built by, this car is fitted with an extremely appropriate and very well-executed four door Tourer, which is of dual cowl configuration. This allows for the second windscreen which is a fold-down arrangement with pivoting wings serving the rear compartment, as well as adding rigidity to the body structure. Weather equipment includes full hood, side screens and tonneau cover and appealing features such as a lovely pillar-mounted Grebel spot lamp and mirror, correctly nickel plated, as is all of the bright-work, including excellent bell head and side lamps, in lovely condition. The car is also equipped with twin side-mounted spare wheels, a lovely, divided windscreen, divers helmet rear lamps and various other appealing period touches. The car is well finished in deep blue with suitably harmonising leather interior and black hood, all in good condition. Running nicely and driving well, fitted with a matching set of six Michelin tyres and offered serviced and MoT'd until August 2021. Comes with an old buff logbook, dated 1958, which helps to complete the ownership history. All-in-all, a fine car, handsome, sound and a real head turner! Chassis No. 80YC Reg. No. YE 2723 Snippets: The Munn Millions The first owner of 80YC was Charles Alexander Munn (1885 / 1981) his father Charles Munn Snr died in 1903 leaving a widow & 4 children under the age of 18. The Munn children grew up in a world of unimaginable wealth as their mother Carrie was the widow & 2nd wife of Joseph Armour (his 1st wife was her sister!) The younger Munn brothers Ector & Gurnee had married two sisters Fernanda & Mary Wanamaker; their father Lewis Rodman Wanamaker was a department store magnate & pioneer aviator, the Wanamaker family home of La Guerida in Palm Beach was purchased in 1933 by Joe Kennedy, father of John F Kennedy. Charles A. Munn married twice, his 1st wife was Mary Astor Paul (their eldest daughter Mary became the Countess of Bessborough) whom he divorced in 1930, Mary moved to Paris & married Jacques Alles a WWI flying ace. During WWII Mary Alles worked with the French Resistance using the code name Pauline after her deceased daughter. Charles A. Munn remained single until 1953 when he married Dorothy Spreckels DuPuy McCarthy the sugar heiress. The multiple Munn family connections by marriage & blood extend to Banking (Drexel), Meat Packing (Armour), Sugar (Spreckels), Law (Paul), Politics (Astor), Publishing (Pulitzer) and Diplomacy (Ponsonby). By 1929 Charles had relocated 80YC from his Parisian address of 6 Bis Rue Thiery to 70 Pall Mall in London which was better known as The Guards Club but was in actual fact the premises of The Midland Bank.
