1936 Railton Straight Eight Special SOLD

1936 Railton Straight Eight Special

The Railton marque was founded in 1933 by Noel Macklin, following his sale of the Invicta company. The business operated from The Fairmile Engineering Company in Cobham, Surrey, with input from Reid Railton, who was famed for his designing of a number of World speed record cars.

The first new car to be produced was the Railton Terraplane, based on a Hudson 8 cylinder chassis, this 4 litre model featured coachwork by Ranalah and boasted exceptional performance for the period, being capable of accelerating from 0 - 60 mph in just under 13 seconds.

The Light Sports Tourer model, launched in 1935 was a particularly rapid machine, able to show a clean pair of heels to considerably more exotic and expensive cars and reach 60 mph from a standstill in just 9 seconds.

Presented here for sale is a purposeful looking Railton Straight Eight Special, powered by the famed 4.2 litre engine. It has been in the present owner’s hands for the past 45 years. Created around 50 years ago, it has been used and enjoyed for trips to Silverstone and various events, however in recent years, it has seen only occasional use as the owner’s sailing exploits have taken more of his time.

Looking very much the part in British Racing Green, with twin aero screens, an attractive finned boat-tail and large fishtail exhaust, this car has great presence and is guaranteed to attract considerable interest wherever it is seen.
