Dear Prewar Editor:
Fifteen maharajah cars are brought together at Retromobile. Presented by the Museo Storico Alfa from Arese is the car that once belonged to Sultan Mohammed Shah Aga Khan III, a 1925 AlfaRomeo RL SS with intricately hammered alloy touring body.
We fell in love with the Dubost bodied two seater Panhard Levassor Six SS in brilliant oily rag condition. Presented by Bruno Vendiesse who explains the car has the sporty twin carburettor three liter 6 cylinder sleeve valve.
As we mentioned earlier, the maharajas arrived at Paris. Well, their former cars did. This is an ex-maharajah Rolls 20/25 having residence in Switzerland.
Sunbeam handstart... it takes two to tango! Hand cranking the V12 aero is a two man shoulder to shoulder job. Sunbeam record car is started for the first time on the continent in nineties years since the speedtrials in Fanoe Denmark in 1924.
Lucky you when you visit Paris to find a new radiator for your 1912 SCAR.
Yesterday we arrived at Retromobile Paris, and as always it is a great privilege to look around while the stands are still under construction and unbelievable cars are driven and pushed around to find their expo destination. We will try to keep track with the most intriguing automobiles and events around us and report to you.
Armoured World War l ammunition (?) Carrier ; part of a WW I dedicated exposition. It appears the designer did worry more about the radiator core than about the chauffeur. The fresh restored V12 Sunbeam record will be started tomorrow around noon. This will be the first time in 90 years it can be heard on the continent. Sir Malcolm Campbell used it in Denmark in 1924. Next to the Sunbeam the ex Count Zborovski Parry Thomas 'Babs' is on display. This famous car will be started as well along the Sunbeam. This will be a vintage stereo record...
