A Frazer Nash in the 1930s .

The note on the rear of this photograph says "1930s, Eyam, Derbyshire Hillclimb Trials". Judging by the mud-plugging going on in the photograph, this looks like a trial rather than a hillclimb to me. The badge on the radiator, and the shape of the bonnet & front axle arrangement, leads me to think this is a 1930s Frazer Nash, one of the chain-driven cars so popular in pre-war competitive events, and still a favourite in VSCC competition even now, some 70 years later. Does PF 4064 survive somewhere, and does anyone recognise the badge fitted to the headlamp bar, just ahead of the radiator? The driver has chosen to go bare-headed, with only a pipe for comfort, his passenger (the 'bouncer') opting for a trilby to keep his locks in order.
A Frazer Nash in action
Enthusiasts of the Frazer Nash and GN cars, could do worse than have a look at the Frazer Nash Car Club Website (link here), as there is some interesting info to be found there. If you wish to advertise some FN parts for sale, or for parts that you need, the Frazer Nash pages in the classified section here at oldclassiccar may be of use.
