Then and Now
30th Jul 2013
Chris Chilcott has sent in some photographs of his 1926 Super Sports Frazer Nash then and now
Photo 2 Is of the car after it was shipped to Zanzibar later in 1928, where it was registered 573 on Zanzibar plates. Dunstan Crarey was a civil engineer responsible for road building on the island. The Nash was raced round the new roads along another Nash (Reputed to be PG 961) owned by Watkins Pitchford. Dunstan Crarey started a long programme of improvements to the car, before its return to the UK in 1930/31.
Photo 3 After being rebuilt by AFN in 1931, the car returned to Zanzibar with several updates, lowered screen, no running boards, rear mounted spare and now painted black plus a bonnet strap! It was returned to the UK in early 1933, when it was traded in against a 1931 Boulogne HX 2286
Photo 4 After losing its original body to the ex Redaway anzani, and it’s original engine to the Chris Russell recreation of PF1144, the remains were acquired by Chilcott in the late 70s. This photo is its final re-incarnation as a Meadows engine Super Sport seen here in its finest hour – winning the class & coming 5th O/all in the 2002 GP Historique at Monaco.
