Designed to carry 4 adults with luggage,max speed 50mph and fuel consumption 45mpg. Named the Top Hat because men at that time could comfortably sit in such a car wearing their top hats – this is borne out by an article that tells us that J.P.

This car latterly belonged to an avid car collector and has been in his collection for many years.
