Vintage and Prestige Fine Motor Cars are proud to be offering this 1927 Hispano Suiza H6B Park Ward foursome Coupe for sale. This was the Olympia show car new in 1926 shown with Hooper 2 door coupe Bodywork. The first owner was Lt-Cdr Montague Graham White. He sent the car back to Hoopers in 1937 for minor modifications such as the installation of a sun visor etc. His exploits are well documented and he appears with the Hispano Suiza in "The Golden Age of Motoring - 1900 -1940" by Roy Bacon. The Hispano Suiza won 1st Prize at many ‘Concourse D' Eegance’ meetings including…
1927 Monte Carlo. Grand Prix plus Silver cup
Cannes. Grand Prix plus Plaquettes plus Perrier Jouet Cup
1928 Bournemouth. Bainbridge Cup plus Grand Banner
Le Touquet. Grand Prix plus Finest car all classes
Southport. First Prise, cars over £1,500
1929 Brighton. Edlin Trophy
1930 Cannes. Grand Prix. Silver Challenge Cup
The Hispano Suiza has undergone an extensive restoration and is presented in excellent running order throughout, The current enthusiast owner Has greatly improved the car spending vast sums with specialist engineers Kenworthy & comany to put it in tip top order. The car has just had a full service & been displayed at Salon Prive before being given to us to sell. As a consequence the car presents beautifully & is absolutely ready for extended use.
The current body is a Park Ward two door foursome coupe, body number 3253, not dissimilar to the original Hooper body. It was built by Park Ward in 1929 and fitted to a six & a half litre Bentley engine. We have paperwork to trace the body all though its existence until today where we find it on the Hispano which it fits and suits beautifully. There are numerous photographs of the body being fitted to the car.
The interior of the Hispano Suiza is dark green leather to the front and rear seating areas, the rear seats being of the occasional fold down variety with the leather extending also to the door cards. Carpeting is a matching green with fawn wool headlining being fitted. There is a large easily operated sunroof in situ for summer motoring. Unusually, both the front and rear windows hinge open allowing for a huge volume of cooling air to pass through the cab for more tropical motoring.
The dash board is a magnificent item made from Ivory and contains a correct set of the original requisite instruments. The various switches have a knurled finish and a delightfully tactile feel to them in operation. Meticulous in the extreme, the owner supplies us with the following information:
Temperature gauge made and fitted, on dash.
Coolant expansion tank made and fitted. Radiator cap modified so mascot can be removed without breaking the water system.
Electric fan fitted, behind radiator, with switch on dash.
