 TEAL OF THE WEEK NO 152

There's a lovely-looking car for sale on the Car and Classics website.  http://www.carandclassic.co.uk/car/C833028 

 

It has the appearance of a beautiful Bugatti Type 35:


What a lovely Bugatti - and a snip at £112,000 - but hang on a minute. A left hand drive Bugatti? Do such things exist? Surely they were all right hand drive? And doesn't that suspension look very like a Teal 35B or Teal Type 59's? And that tail looks very Teal-like. And the mudguards. And the turned dashboard. And that's not an external gearlever on the left, is it - it's a handbrake, surely? Could this be the one missing left-hand drive Teal made by Bob Jones and Bob Lewis, with aluminium bodywork by Mike Hall ?

As it happens, we have three photos of that most rare LHD Teal at the works at Grimsditch Hall in the mid 1980s. Here she is, with Mike Astill's Type 35 in blue beyond:


They certainly look similar. LHDrive, one raised driver wind-protector to left, narrow radiator, same mudguards and suspension, same tail.... Hmm.

So possibly a Teal chassis with Teal body and Bugatti additions? Nice wheels and brakes. You decide.

Thanks Adli, David and Andy for info. She's a beauty anyway you look at her. I think we can put her in the register as Teal of the Week No 152.
