Brief History

The 10/30,11/40 and 12/40 cars of which very few survive, have side-valve engines. Of 1460cc for the 10/30 and 1598cc for the 11/40and 12/40.

The earliest 10/30s were advertised in July 1920 as “The Car for the Connoisseur” and were priced at £685 for the open two-seater, relatively expensive at the time.

Within a year, private owners and works drivers were winning awards all over the country, and this set a trend which was to continue throughout the 1920s and beyond.

DB3364 is known as the one and only 11/40 in existence.

In the early 1950s DB3364 was restored by Sutcliffe of Macclesfield and has not undergone any further restoration work since; a testament to the restorer and its owner.

As this is the last surviving 11/40, you can have the pleasure of purchasing a piece of history.

The car starts and runs through all gears. The chassis is in excellent condition with the body to match.
