“Dear GE & Mulliner Registrars,
For a period of about 3 years (1926 – 28) the Austin Motor Co. issued
a series of Car Numbers for chassis delivered to the Gordon England
and Mulliner coachbuilders (and probably other companies). Whilst
doing some research a while back I made a list of these, and I
thought that it might be of interest to share this and if possible
add to it.
Chassis Car No. Car Date
19834 CHA1-830 Special 8/7/26
27751 CHA1-1758 GE Cup 7/1/27
29386 CHA1-2491 GE Cup 1/3/27
34326 CHA1-2970 (One-off?) /4/27
44403 CHA1-4189 AD Van 15/10/27
45568 CHA1-4832 R Saloon 21/10/27
48088 CHA1-5936 AD Tourer (Aus) 1927
49918 CHA1-6664 Mulliner saloon 16/12/27
(53028) CHA1-8191 (Mulliner) 8/3/28
53723 CHA1-8531 GE Cup 23/8/28
55342 CHA1-9273 Mulliner 23/3/28
Some of these numbers are taken from logbooks or have been
transferred on to other cars.

A small piece for the GE Register Archive
From Light Car and Cyclecar Mar 9th 1928 page 24,
‘Around the Trade
Gordon England Ltd, the Palace of Industry, Wembley, have taken over
the distributorship for Gwynne cars for Essex and Herts. Special
England Sports saloons and sports two seater bodies are to be
standardised, thus increasing the present available range of Gwynne
cars. Messres Sydney Cummings will be pleased to receive inquiries
from those outside the aforementioned territory‘

A very ‘special’ 1926/7 Gordon England Saloon. This photograph was given to me by my local garage who in turn was given it by a customer. This would have been a rather expensive university student car and so I’m wondering if this was a publicity photograph used in an advertisement by Gordon England. Has anyone seen this photo before and know anything about it? I understand today that the Gordon England saloons were rather flimsily built and perhaps only one exists. All rather handsome and jolly photo!

Comment: I would like to gather as much information as possible,to enable me to build a replica Gordon England Brooklands car.
I would like to communicate with any other like minded people,who have original or re-created cars,to assist me in gaining the knowledge,drawings and measurements for my own venture.
I live near Great Missenden,Bucks,I own two box saloons and a ‘stripped down’ special (for the project).
I am not new to the task in hand,having skills in metal fabrication and wood working.
If anyone can help,in any form,I would be pleased to hear from you.
Kind Regards ,
I spotted this on Facebook today, thanks to Alan Parrot for posting it,
