• 1928 Earl’s Court show car

We are delighted to offer for sale one of the earliest Aston Martins from the Bertelli era, TS10.  This wonderful car was the company’s first ‘Standard Sports Model’ and was in pride of place for their 1928 stand at the Earls Court Show; it was one of their earliest short-chassis cars carrying a light 2 seat body. The car was acquired by the Maharajah of Patiala and was taken to his residence in the Punjab, India.

Any record of TS10 was lost for many years apart from it being offered for sale in 1967 by Mr Paraamjit of Lucknow Uttar Pradesh. It then went off radar again until it resurfaced again in the early 2000s – not only in a poor state but quite literally in pieces. The original engine and worm drive rear axle were sadly no longer with the car, however Andy Bell of Ecurie Bertelli, managed to source the last known correct wet sump engine, number TS18 and manufacture a new rear axle. The car was restored by Andy during the mid 2000s and now presents in excellent, restored condition and finished in a distinctive yellow colour which is believed to be the colour it was painted for most of its time in India.

This rare car has many unique features and is a key part of the Aston Martin’s history so sure it must take pride of place in any great collection.
