Comprising a shortened 8'2' chassis sourced from the remains of a Triumph Gloria saloon purchased in 2015, DS 1910 is powered by a 1929 Ford Model A engine displacing some 3.3-litres driving through an Alvis Speed 25 all synchromesh gearbox. Retaining a 4.75:1 rear axle and hydraulic brakes with Luvax shock absorbers, the car's 18' 42mm hub wheels are fitted with 5.50 Blockley tyres. We are advised the engine has been newly bored, ground and white metalled and benefits from a Brierley fast camshaft, high compression cylinder head, unleaded valves /seats and breathes through twin SU carburettors fed by a Facet red fuel pump with Filter King fuel pressure filter / regulator from an 8-gallon aluminium fuel tank. Painted in Jaguar Racing Green with black leather seats, detachable aero screens or a detachable windscreen with wipers may be fitted for road use.Now said to be 'ready to compete' with regulation oil and radiator catch tanks, fire extinguisher and timing strut, the car has previously passed inspection by MSA scrutineers. Offered with VSCC Eligibility Document dated January 2018 and Swansea V5 document it has the potential to be very competitive in the right hands in its current form whilst the Alvis gearbox should be more than able to cope with more power if a new owner wished to develop the engine further.
