Chassis: C97
One of the very last Prince Henry Vauxhalls built, this car was acquired new by keen cyclist and discerning automobile enthusiast T.W. Badgery. He had the car clothed by Midlands coach-builder Hoskison with a lightweight aluminium tourer body. Evident by the 140,000 miles clocked up by 1931, Badgery enjoyed driving his high performance Vauxhall very much. The car was then laid up until it was acquired by famous journalist and son of the original designer Laurence Pomeroy Jr. in 1945. Like Badgery, Pomeroy enjoyed the Prince Henry very much and would go on to own chassis C97 until his death in 1966. From his estate, it was acquired by fellow Vintage Sports Car Club member and past president Sam Clutton. He sold the car in 1970 when it was acquired by the late Reg Long from whose estate it will now be offered at Bonhams' December 2016 Bond Street sale. Like the three previous owners, Long used the car extensively and made several subtle improvements to ensure it could keep up with modern traffic. Having had only four owners from new, the Bonhams sale offers a unique opportunity to acquire one of the earliest sports cars.
