TEAL OF THE WEEK No 117
XWA522T
 
 
 
 
Graham Elsam from Lincolnshire has owned a unique Teal for some years.  Here it is photographed in Wainfleet soon after a recent MOT, and also  below being refuelled by Graham over the pavement, a system that we senior (=old) Tealers will remember from the 50s and 60s.  The wheels of Graham’s unique beauty are most unusual, as are the spline fittings.  Graham says 3 of the 4 wheels have fallen off at various times, but they seem secure now.  You can see below that the tyres are rather thin, which combined with the 2.5 litre Triumph six under the bonnet and a bit of rain makes for interesting motoring…  The front ironwork of this glorious Teal looks like it may have been modified.  Doesn’t she look like an authentic 1920s racer?  Thanks for the most intereresting photos of your splendid Teal Type 35, Graham .

(PS: petrol’s not cheap in Wainfleet, Lincolnshire, is it?)
