2,000cc. This Swallow Doretti is well known within the owners club. During the late 1990's, following an earlier rebuild, it was purchased by Totra Motive Power in 1999 who sold it to a Swiss resident and, it would appear from the correspondence, was driven to Switzerland and was used by them both there and in the UK. It changed hands in 2014 and remains registered to that owner. The car was sold by ACA in 2017. The buyer, who is now our vendor, undertook a comprehensive recommissioning which included brakes overhaul and engine service. Two new front chassis outriggers were also fabricated and fitted. Although the body shows various battle‑scars, it is now fully sorted mechanically and described as running and driving well. It comes with a substantial amount of new and difficult to obtain parts including bumpers, bumper irons, over‑riders, lights, seals and brackets. Eligible for the Mille Miglia and various other events. Re‑registered in 1979, it registers six owners since. The history file contains various receipts, some copies of rebuild photos, correspondence between owners and a photocopy of the original manual.
