For those who are not familiar with this model, the Bantam Singer Nine is a car which was produced by Singer from 1936 to 1939. It was the first model from Singer to have a pressed steel body. It was offered as a new economy model at the 1935 Motor Show in London, replacing the earlier Singer Nine series.

Singer specialised in making small sports cars during the 1930s and had considerable success in rallies, hillclimbs and races.

This model was built on the underslung chassis that had proved so successful for the Singer Le Mans range and was powered by the same 972cc single overhead cam engine, with a slightly lower compression ratio and a single Zenith side draught carburettor. The engine generated approximately 25 BHP which was transmitted through a 3-speed gearbox with synchromesh on 3rd gear. A pressed steel saloon body with either 2 doors or optionally 4 doors, was bolted to the chassis and the interior was furnished with two folding seats at the front and a rear bench seat.

This car was a design based on the successful Ford “Y” type and looks very similar to the contemporary Morris 8. This early model of the Singer Bantam displayed a mascot in the form of a chromed flying Bantam Cockerel on top of the radiator. This was discontinued in 1937 when sharp mascots were outlawed for the protection of pedestrians.
