In trouble

Asked by Peter Doogood

IN 1939 my father came home in a brand new BSA Scout sports car, much to my mum's disgust. I was only six at the time, but was wondering if you or your readers could shed any light on the car?

THE Birmingham Small Arms company started making cars in 1907 and owned the Daimler company before selling it to Jaguar. The BSA Scout was a pretty front-wheel-drive sports car made between 1935 and 1939. It began with a 9hp four-cylinder engine that grew to 10hp in the Series 2. The last series, the Series 5, was built in 1939 and was available as a two-seater, four-seater, or rare two-seater drop-head coupe.
