The Singer 10hp debuted at The Cycle & Motor Cycle Show in November 1912. Because it weighed less than 7cwt and was under 1,100cc in capacity (actually 1,096cc) the 10hp Singer was classed as a cyclecar, hence the choice of venue. But unlike the majority of contemporary cyclecars, the new baby Singer was a proper light car and thus a development of immense significance. Produced for more than a decade, the Ten was a huge commercial success for Singer and is regarded as a landmark model in the history of the British motor industry.
This example comes with a letter from Rootes (Singer's owners) dated October 1968 and addressed to a previous owner, from Hertfordshire. This letter reveals that chassis 'C4413' is a 1919 model, though the registration dates from circa 1910/1911; registered on 1st January 1919, it would have been produced towards the end of 1918. At around this time (1968) the car was sold a gentleman who kept it until 2000. The next owner purchased the Singer at auction in April 2005. Used sparingly, the car was last MoT'd in 2006 and has been garage stored since then, though it has been run recently. Accompanying documentation consists of the aforementioned letter, a quantity of expired MoT certificates dating back to the 1970s, and a V5C document.
