This beautifully restored Singer 9 Le Mans Two-Seater is a credit to its current and previous owners. In its last custodianship, the Singer underwent a complete restoration that was completed in 2016 and consisted of a full body-off rebuild with the fitting of a new ash frame, a new bulkhead and a new rear panel. The other original body panels were restored and refitted. We understand that the original instruments were rebuilt and new drive cables fitted; a new wooden dashboard and renewed upholstery, interior trim and carpets (to the original style) completed the interior of the sports car. The original hood frame has been restored but we understand that it requires new covering (the original sidescreens are included in the sale) and a new tonneau cover is supplied with the Singer.

Mechanically, the engine, gearbox, and front and rear axles were all overhauled. New components were installed in the rebuild of the braking system and all road wheels were grit blasted, checked and resprayed. The chrome shell of the radiator, as well as the mesh, were renewed.

The vendor, who has cherished the Le Mans for four and a half years, tells us that it runs and drives as was intended by Singer, and is certainly ready to be enjoyed and welcomed at Singer Owner’s Club and Vintage Sports Car Club events.

The history file includes the V5C registration certificate, a 1950s continuation registration book, a reprint instruction book, a Solex carburettor booklet, a Singer Owner’s Club dating certificate (confirming that the first owner was a Miss B Warburton of Bangor, Co. Down), a copy of the factory production records, numerous invoices and correspondence.  The Le Mans comes with its original toolkit.
