  1. I would love to see an original NOS part in KG No.3 if you can send photographs? My email address is: nathanjsaunders -at- out look .c0 m
  2. Consider Renaissance Wax. Renaissance Wax is the finest cleaner/polish wax available, specified by museums, art galleries and conservators throughout the world. It will gently lift the grime of antiquity and murky deposits of other polishes, leaving surfaces delightful to see and touch. May be used on any solid surface including wood, metal (coins), marble, onyx, shell, stone, ivory, plastics or leather/paper. Its translucency allows unlimited applications and polish never stains or discolours. The hardness of the matured wax coating gives excellent protection against normal spillages,
  3. I don't think the K model had the steering damper, they seem to have been retrofitted a bit later on in 1940? Above average "balloon" tank and NOS Tecalemit grease gun added to the pile.
  4. Here are some recent photographs, featuring my quest to build a factory new KM 20. Using as many original parts as possible, many unique to prewar and early war machines. Where possible, new old stock. The majority of parts are the later, very few are reproduction, some are used. Named after one of my great-great-grandmothers.
  5. Almost every part I have for Ada. Some parts up front need reproducing, such as the battery and paper ephemera. All N.O.S O.E.M from the 1940's/50's, with the exception of: Used 1930's/40's/50's O.E.M: DU 142 F Headlamp Shell DU 142 F Reflector Cone Front Number Plate Front Hub Dust Cap KM 20 Crank Cases Timing Cover Valve Chest Cover MT 1130 Shell and Bulb Holder Rear Lifting Handle Lycett Aeroelastic Saddle Badge ROMAC Tape Tin, Scissors and Information Sheeting Reproduction/Modern Lucas Magdyno Date Plate Engine Oil Pressure Indicator Ensign
  6. All over the world, England, France, The Netherlands, Germany, Austria, Italy, Greece, Malta, Egypt, Malaysia, Thailand, Australia, United States and Canada...so far.
  7. New in today, a NOS Ammeter (dated September 1939). A year later than ideal but I won't let that bother me...too much 😁

  9. Been working on the new project since December Pete, with the same driving force and eye for detail. Here's a sneaky peek at project Ada!
  10. Not me on eBay I'm afraid, I've sold most of her accumulated parts on Facebook including the steering wheel. The project was based out of an attic room and a rented outdoor space, which was less than ideal to begin with, unfortunately due to family relations the restoration became impossible maintain due to lack of work space. I can't afford to rent a workshop large enough for a Matador and I don't own my own property.
  11. In 1998, yes. Once you've cracked time travel, let me know. She was just shy of £800 in the 1970's...(I have the receipt!)
  12. It's called having to sell your project for half the cost due to circumstances beyond your control. At £7000 I'm loosing money and quite a bit.
  13. FOR SALE: 1944 A.E.C Matador - £7000 ono An extremely low mileage wartime (July 1944) 0853 Matador with full history. Chassis number 7837.

A very clean wartime engine with
