This is the late Rowena Heath’s attractive 1960 Series lllB Singer Gazelle Estate, which, as far as can be ascertained, is the only example of this model currently on the road in the UK, having spent most of its life on the Isle of Man.
Rowena was looking for an historic vehicle that would serve more than one purpose and was told about a Gazelle Estate for sale near Rugby. “The car had good paintwork and the underside appeared original – the paint was still even in the rear wheel arches!”
Rowena found that the car handled in an assured manner and could pull away strongly from roundabouts at 20-30mph without dropping into 2nd gear, and its climbing capability was fantastic. Rowena told us – “The Gazelle was equal in performance and handling to a Nissan Note I once hired – pretty good for a car 48 years older!”
Does anybody know where this rare car is today?
