A two-door, four-seater Convertible version of the marque's Bantam Saloon, the Singer Roadster was first sold in 1939. The traditional body comprised alloy panels fixed to a wooden frame. Powered by a 1074cc SOHC four-cylinder engine allied to three-speed manual transmission, the newcomer was reputedly capable of some 65mph. Suspension was by leaf springs all-round and the drum brakes were mechanically operated. The model re-emerged virtually unchanged after WW2, and remained so until the 4A variant of 1949. This featured a Solex carburettor in place of the previous SU and featured a four-speed gearbox. The 4AB of 1950 sported a new chassis with independent coil-spring front suspension and a mix of rod/hydraulic brakes.

Finished in Cream with matching tan upholstery, this particular example is described by the vendor as being in "good" condition with regard to its bodywork, paintwork, electrical equipment and interior trim, whilst he regards the engine and transmission to be in “very good” order. Supplied new to dealers T.H. Garner of Birmingham in March 1951, the Singer is understood to have been the subject of much expenditure in the 1990s and 2000s. Work carried out included a photographically documented respray in c.2001 and overhauling of the mechanicals by Trevor Cornelius and Ian Blackburn. More recently, between 2015-17, the car was further improved by marque specialist John Parker who was selected to rebuild the engine, cooling and braking systems.

Offered with a comprehensive history file comprising invoices, restoration photos, sundry correspondence and much more, ‘LOE 912’ is offered with full weather gear. A number of spare parts can also be collected by the purchaser from the vendor’s home in Lymm, Cheshire.
