This is Peter Watts’ 1939 Roadster, which he has owned since 1971. He fully restored to its present immaculate condition 40 years ago with the exception of the running boards. This was because the bodywork under the doors and rear of the front wing had rotted away and when he eventually managed to find replacement wings and running boards they were not exactly the right ones for the car and he was unable to line them up. He promised one day he would sort it all out, and now, true to his word, two brand new, made to measure running boards have been fitted.
But as you can see in this picture on the banking at Brooklands, he had trimmed the brackets and painted them to match the car, and it looked fine.
The picture below was taken at the 2012 Footman James Classic Car Show at Shepton Mallet – its first outing with them fitted.
When they are not swanning around in the Roadster, Peter and Sara play music in a ceilidh band. Whilst this has nothing to do with Singer Cars, you can check on what they get up to by visiting their website – www.muchadoband.com.
