B and M Side Valve Cloverleaf (3 seater)

(1923)

This wonderful Clover leaf side valve Aston-Martin, chassis number 1926, was first owned by a very sporting motorist, N T Beardsell. Indeed, Beardsell even entered it in the 1924 Aston Hill Climb in May, the very venue that gave its name to the marque. During this event, the car came in 2nd behind another similar Aston-Martin side valve.

For many years, chassis 1926 has been fitted with more sporty 2-seater coachwork and it continued to be entered in competitive events.

More recently #1926 has been painstakingly restored back to the same specification as it was built back in 1923 with the attractive 3 seat layout. The first event that the car was seen was the 2013 Spring Concours at Greenwich where the car won the pre-war class. It then went on to appear as the 4th car in the 101 car timeline during the Aston Martin Centenary Celebration at Kensington Palace in July 2013.

B and M Side Valve (3 seater)

A vast majority of the 54 production Bamford and Martin cars were built with a 1.5 litre side valve engine. The engine, designed by H.V.Robb had the head cast integral with the block. This particular example, chassis 1941, is a long chassis tourer with 3 seater cloverleaf bodywork from 1924 and was photographed whilst on display at the Brooklands Museum.

This particular car has a very interesting history as it has been rescued from scrap yards three times in it’s life. The current attractive body, whilst not the original, is correct for the car. The engine is capable of delivering 38 bhp, enough for B&M to advertise its top speed as 72 mph. Sports models had an improved output of 45 bhp but in general, the side valve engine was not powerful enough to compete with more modern engines and AM went on to develop the 16 valve.
