This example of 14 Light 6 Model ASXSB as initially introduced on June 14th 1933 (ASX denoting the larger 1781cc engine) was available only in "DeLuxe" specification which gave the buyer a sliding sunroof, two windscreen wipers, rear seat folding centre armrest, a patented "No Draft" ventilation system along with a larger power output and all at no extra charge thus making it the same price of £215 as the standard 14 model. Production ended during August 1934 by which time 23,294 had rolled of the Luton assembly lines. From our research, it appears that this car was originally registered in Flintshire, North Wales, as 'DM 8865', a number range issued in this area until 1936. With a DVLA registration date of July 9th 1959 which is some 23 after the car was produced it is impossible to decide why this is the case although an educated guess might lead one to believe the car was laid up at the outbreak of WW2 and remained so until 1959. The original registration was removed in 2002 and the car reallocated the 'DAS 948' number it carries today. This example would appear to have had little or no restoration and has an excellent patina, the car drives when started and the vendor and current registered keeper states he has driven the car locally on several occasions. We have no other information regarding this example.
