CPA 873Chassis no. 23137Engine no. 69475Introduced in 1932 and the smallest ever Lanchester, the Ten was unique in its class at the time, having both a Daimler fluid flywheel and Wilson four-speed pre-selector gearbox. The car had an adequate performance with a top speed of just over 60mph. Little is known about the history of this example apart from the fact that Barry Trevarrow acquired the car following the death of local enthusiast and friend Royston Ball, who had enjoyed the car for some years. This Lanchester is offered with a V5C, an original spare parts catalogue and an instruction manual.
