First owner was Leslie Vard, brother of Jaguar works rally driver Cecil Vard, and well know test trial driver.
The car had a number of well known Irish owners and was raced in the Phoenix Park.
It remains in long term Irish ownership requiring full restoration.

The father of jokes about warm beer and smoke escaping from wires is Joseph Lucas. Lucas died of typhoid after drinking infected water in Naples in 1902.

What disease did Lucas succumb to?
