Reg Parnell's ERA challenger
Posted 14 May 2009 - 13:28
In particular I am interested in finding out what happened to the original 7 bearing twin cam engine, was it ever finished?
I think Paul Emery probably fitted the brakes into an Emeryson? As he installed SS Jaguar brakes into the Challenger when he fitted the Lagonda V12 engine.
I have most of the car minus body and brakes.
Any information would be greatfully received to help with the rebuild. Thank you Duncan Ricketts

thank you very much Doug. Anything helps. I'm not good with compter tech. We are off to Oulton with R3A and I'm in R4D.
We have some photos which might help, Duncan - and some movie.
Using Karin as typist. Thanks Duncan

Do you have pictures of the car when transformed by Emery and how it was looking when you bought it?
Expect I can be of some help.
Hi J-M, thank you. I do have a copy of Autocar March 1939.
I only have a photo of when it was found in America.
It looked vaguely like an e type jaguar when it was in america.
I only bought the chasis and suspension which were relevant to the original car.
The Lagonda engine was sold before I bought it.
I have been trying to find a photo and once I have I will post it here. Thanks again Duncan
