Charming - this is the word most used to describe this little rocket
Everyone who sees it, gaffaws and waves heartily as we speed by, exhaust noise almost overcome with the whine of the Supercharger
This beautifully creation has been crafted by the best - Barry Foster built the engine, keeping the original engine size (847cc) for a little more mid range ooopmh (remember the J2 whizzies along with only 36hp whilst this little missile dances along with twice as much)
The immaculate restoration was put together by the "Old Dutch Master" Gerard van Putten with shipbuilder Theun Hoogmoed, building the bodywork
Everything is in brand new condition and the attention to detail is beyond most restorations, by a long chalk - having taken 9 years you can see nothing was left untouched and no stone left unturned
The history folder is astounding will all notes and invoices for the rebuild, as well as pictures everywhere
Headline details are listed below, and whilst not exhaustive sets the picture for those in the know:-
60mm Venolia pistons, Super sports camshaft by Bayton Jones (of course), who also did the new aluminium cylinder head, solid copper head gasket, 2 brush dynamo with internals by Carwood, 4 star differential by Roger Furneaux, steel diff. housing, Hartford shock absorbers, ENV gearbox modification, all instruments restored / made by John Marks, HV5L J4 carburettor by Burlen, Volumex compressor, bodywork by T Hoohmoed (Old Dutch Master) and a Donald Campbell 4-spoke steering wheel - amongst very many other features
Originally J 3155 was delivered to Maurice Oliver of Budleigh Salterton, via P Pike & Co Ltd in Exeter in April 1933
All works records of the build have been kept as well as raft on correspondence thereafter
The J4 was a Supercharged racing version of the J2 of which 2494 were build between 1932 - 1934 (£199) , whereas the J4 and at over twice the price (£495), was limited to only 9 units build
The authority on these cars, Barry Foster, suggests only 35 or so have been converted to J4 specification making them very unusual indeed
We never realised so much fun could be found a such a small package!
