1934 2 seater streamlined requiring full body restoration. This is one of only 6 cars left in the UK known to the Aero Minx Register, not all of those are roadworthy, so she's well worth saving. The car was purchased as a restoration project in 1990. Family, work, too many other projects and now age have got in the way!
Current V5 registration document in my name. Low number of previous owners.
The rolling chassis looks to have been restored, and it steers. Some of the rear aluminium body panels have also been restored, together with part of the wood frame. Most of the other panels are present, including 2 bonnets, but will need repairs. The hood frame and both side screen frames are present, together with the windscreen, and glass.
Comes with 2 non-original engines in parts, believed Hillman 10hp, and 2 gearboxes, plus seats and various boxes of parts and instruments (possibly incomplete at a guess). The badly rusted steel wings and running boards may be useful as patterns. 2 new old stock half shafts are included - now becoming scarce. The unique Aero Minx radiator surround is also present, plus the "Aero Minx" script, but no radiator. There is neither trim, nor wiring.
Handbooks, copies of articles and road tests, plus copy of the parts manual are all included. More pictures are available.
We need to recoup costs to date, therefore offers will not be considered. The car will need trailering away.
