This is a rare surviving example of BSA's 1075cc T9 model, registered in September 1933 and now showing 70,416 miles on its odometer. The V5C shows four registered keepers, with its last prior to the vendor having owned it since the early 1950s. He had the BSA, nicknamed Bumble, restored circa 2014/2015 but passed away before it could be put back on the road, with just a few basic jobs to be done. It has been in storage since then and thus still requires recommissioning. The car is reported as turning over, but no attempt has yet been made to get it running and driving (although it was fine before its restoration). The overall condition is very good throughout, with the hood and interior in practically as-new condition. Upgrades include 12-volt electrics, fuel pump and additional water pump; the original light units will also come with the car as part of the spares. 

Paperwork includes the V5C and a huge amount of history with copies of road tests, and bills and information dating back to the 1950s. There's also photos of the restoration, an owner's notebook of work carried out over several years, an old V5 and buff logbook plus technical manuals and owner's handbooks. The car has been local to East Anglia all its life, with the vendor hoping it goes to a buyer who will love and understand it.
