The asking price is 45,000 Euros. Here is the link to cut and paste:
Update: Sep 18 for sale in Germany for 30,000 Euros. This car is almost certainly also TOW No 74
Does anyone recognise Teal PUG 306 P ? Would be grateful for any reply on the Discussion Forum on this website – thanks. (Yes – see TOW No 74)
Thank you, splendid Tealer Wolfgang for this information. This Teal has now been designated Teal of The Week No 151.
TEAL OF THE WEEK NO 152
There’s a lovely-looking car for sale on the Car and Classics website. http://www.carandclassic.co.uk/car/C833028
It has the appearance of a beautiful Bugatti Type 35:
What a lovely Bugatti – and a snip at £112,000 – but hang on a minute. A left hand drive Bugatti? Do such things exist? Surely they were all right hand drive? And doesn’t that suspension look very like a Teal 35B or Teal Type 59’s? And that tail looks very Teal-like. And the mudguards. And the turned dashboard. And that’s not an external gearlever on the left, is it – it’s a handbrake, surely? Could this be the one missing left-hand drive Teal made by Bob Jones and Bob Lewis, with aluminium bodywork by Mike Hall ?
As it happens, we have three photos of that most rare LHD Teal at the works at Grimsditch Hall in the mid 1980s. Here she is, with Mike Astill’s Type 35 in blue beyond:
They certainly look similar. LHDrive, one raised driver wind-protector to left, narrow radiator, same mudguards and suspension, same tail…. Hmm.
So possibly a Teal chassis with Teal body and Bugatti additions? Nice wheels and brakes. You decide.
Thanks Adli, David and Andy for info. She’s a beauty anyway you look at her. I think we can put her in the register as Teal of the Week No 152.
WHAT’S THIS? EXCITING DISCOVERY –
TEAL OF THE WEEK No 153
Tealers will recall that about the first eight Teals made by Ian Foster in 1983/early 1984 were called Worsleys (see page 2 of this website for details). An early Teal has recently been re-discovered with the above plaque attached to its dashboard. This chassis-number 10002 appears to be that of the second Teal (or Worsley) ever built – and as such the earliest Teal known to the Club. More info and photos to come. Exciting times!
Here we are:
Not bad for Teal/Worsley No 2 from 1983, is she? Looks like she’s been well looked after ; she’s Teal of the Week No 153.
TEAL OF THE WEEK No.154
NEW TEAL OF THE WEEK (No 154)
A Teal Type 35 four-seater appeared on Ebay this week (7/8/17) which hasn’t been seen in Teal circles for about 10 years. She’s registered TIL 1930, is dark blue, with an 1800cc engine and she has less than 28,000 miles on the clock. See September 2019 update below…
She has a rather lovely and unusual dashboard for a Teal, with a switch marked aerial (!). She also is fitted with an elephant Bugatti radiator mascot.
We understand that this Teal was originally bought in uncompleted kit form by Cliff Sedman, completed by him and then sold on many years ago, and that considerable cosmetic improvements have subsequently been carried out…There‘s no doubt Teal of the week No 154 is a beauty; but not cheap. Nor should she be.
Update: September 2019: this lovely Teal has been purchasedfrom Total Head Turners by Richard C . Richard is enjoying his beautiful Teal while investigating its earlier history, which may have involved ownership by Cliff, former distinguished Teal Owners’ Club chairman.
TEAL OF THE WEEK No 155
Do you know this Teal? Tealer David Ward has a copy of a 1990 magazine called YOUR CLASSICS in which it is featured, but neither he nor I are familiar with this Teal. Some early Teal Club members may recall seeing it, perhaps, and may remember who the owner was, and where it went to….
Do you know that registration number CKH 850T? It isn’t registered anymore, but is she now under a new plate? And what’s that mascot on the dummy radiator filler in picture one? Do you recognise those unusual hooded headlights? Could she be on the Continent? Has David discovered a new Teal of the Week for our records?
Any answers would be much appreciated on the Teal Discussion Forum page of this website, or direct to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks, Tealers.
THIS TEAL HAS NOW BEEN DESIGNATED AS
TEAL OF THE WEEK No 155
