*£20,000 spent in last six years
*Holden bodywork
*Thought to be one of three such 20/60s

Powered by a 3.0-litre six-cylinder engine, this 20/60 is said to run effortlessly at 50mph but has more in reserve if needed. Our trade vendor says much of this car's life was spent in Australia, before coming to the UK in 2007. There is some early history and it was eventually found in a Brisbane workshop, needing restoration. That work is said to have been completed before leaving Australia and in the last six years it is reported that £20,000 has been spent. Prior to that it is said the Holden bodywork was fully stripped and re-painted and the engine overhauled. The engine is described as having had an extensive re-build and is 'smooth and silent'.

With £20,000 reportedly spent on this 20/60 in the last six years it is said to run effortlessly at 50mph. It is believed to be one of just three such 20/60s and would make an ideal addition to any serious pre-war car collection. Offered by a Trade vendor.

£40,000 - 60,000
€45,000 - 68,000
US$49,000 - 73,000
