TEAL OF THE WEEK – No. 26
This delightful Teal, widely acknowledged as one of the finest Teal Type 35s ever built, was created by Phillip Searle over several years up to 2007. Phillip, a skilled engineer, developed Bob Jones’ design, and used only the finest-quality parts in his Teal; he was painstaking and unhurried in his approach in order that each detail should be correct and of the highest quality. This beautiful and powerful (6C/2500) Teal became one of the final Teals to be built.
Phillip’s unique Teal was built on the latest, lowered Teal Type 35B chassis, with Granada front suspension and steering. This delightful sporting motor car was briefly owned in 2009 by John Williams, in whose time these photos were taken (thank you), and then became the proud property of A. Halabi, who has been driving this Teal in central London for the past three years, which must have turned quite a few heads…
