Delivered to its first owner, Mr. Clarke, in March 1947, this HRG 1100 was used extensively by its first two owners for hillclimb, sprint and trials competition in the UK. A wonderful album of pictures featuring Mr. Clarke competing in the car, plus trophies that he won, accompany the extensive history file. The original sales paperwork from Charles Follett remains along with numerous photographs of the car throughout its life.
The car moved to California in 1964 and remained in the hands of one family there until fairly recently. Following a restoration carried out in the mid '60's, the car was successfully shown in concours events on the West Coast. On its return to the UK the car was re-issued with its original registration number and is now ready to continue its interesting life with a new custodian.
HRG's are currently enjoying a period of recognition as people begin to appreciate the wide variety of events for which they are ideally suited and it is rare to find an example with such a well documented history.
