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.
