Registration: AH 114
Chassis no: 13124
Engine no: 20282
Engine size: 3191 CC 4 Cylinders
One of three known survivors of 100 Napier type T64’s built in 1914 as part of a War office order to Napier and dispatched to Flanders during WW1.
Ah114 was donated to the war effort by the Norfolk based family and returned to them at the cease of hostilities.After it’s return it was then despatched to Mann Egerton to be rebodied as you see today.
The Gentleman’s Estate coachwork was made to order for the customer. The purpose of the car was for use entirely upon the owners Norfolk estate in taking the ‘guns’ to the shoot and other similar duties. This was its role for 18 years until 1932 when AH114 was first registered for use on public roads.
Such large Edwardian became unpopular during the 30’s and war years, however its reliability and sound construction enabled it to avoid fate during these lean years. AH 114,s thoroughbred pedigree was eventually recognised by the Hon. Patrick Lindsay who purchased the T64 in 1955.
Ten years later AH 114 was purchased by Lord Montagu for the Montagu Motor Museum, where Lady Montagu designed the present paintwork in an authentic Edwardian style. The rear door still bears the insignia of Lady Montagu.
Napiers are best remembered for their racing exploits; the colour now know as Brtitish Racing was earlier known as Napier Green. Eventually the Montagu Museum was able to purchase an original race car and AH 114 returned to private ownership.
To the eye AH 114 is a pure time warp. The exterior is all hand/brush painted and is beautifully striped to the lower section. There all sorts of Mann Egerton makers plates and Napier plaques around the car, all of course in brass. The Electrical system is C.A.V . and located on the bulkhead.
The rear compartment is simply magnificent; the rear door has a leather pocket and cloth boarder with ivory fixings to the top. Inside there is buttoned leather seats with all operational windows, there is a smokers hatch and twin decretive lights to the ceiling, all windows also have operational silk blinds, air vents to the front and rear.
In our showroom and ready for viewing.
