Purchased by our vendor on a bit of a whim last May, he wasn't really looking for another vehicle but being called Bob he felt it was meant to be his car! An original buff registration book on file shows that this charming front-wheel-drive BSA Scout was first registered on June 28th 1935. Purchased in June 2000 by a Glynn Edwards as a project, it appears from a letter in the history file from a former owner to the BSA FWD Club that the car was undergoing rejuvenation as long ago as 1989. Mr Edwards carried out a very thorough rejuvenation which was finished in June 2005, and photographs are on file showing some of the work in progress. In the file are a set of wood frame plans and it is believed that much of the Ash frame was replaced during the rejuvenation. Mr Edwards was apparently 92 years old when he sold the car to our vendor, and it is only being sold now due to moving home to somewhere with less garaging. The BSA is described by the vendor as having a good paintwork, and very good bodywork, engine, gearbox, and interior trim.
