TEAL OF THE WEEK – No 119
 
 
 
 
One of our finest Teal Type 35 boat-tails  is owned by Dr Wolfgang Knupfer, keen Tealer and loyal TOC member, and is located near Ulm in  the beautiful  Baden-Wurtenburg  region of  southern Germany.   Wolfgang has owned her for three years ( ex Don Jenkin, Cornwall ), and has done quite a bit of work on her over the winter ( see  below):
 
 
 
In the workshop
 
 
She is equipped with  a 2500cc 6-cylinder Triumph motor  (130 bhp) with four-speed box and overdrive  on 3rd and 4th, new sky-blue wire wheels (Tealer Hector Martin drove over from Amsterdam to Wolfgang’s to pick up the old wheels,  have them refurbished and re-tyred, and David Ward has now fitted them to Hector’s Teal – ex-Gigi), a Bugatti steering wheel, and beautiful proportions.
 
Wolfgang is doing more work on her this spring ( a little different from dentistry), and promises us more photos when all is  complete.  Meanwhile, here is this lovely Teal to enjoy – an Ode to Joy, as Schiller would have told us…or as Keats would have it ‘a thing of beauty is a joy forever’.  She’s a delight, Wolfgang; thanks for the photos.
