AutoviaDear Pre war car,
Attached is a pic of my 1937 Autovia saloon,we have just attended the ''Sunday Scramble" at Bicester Heritage.
The reson for my message is a request,July will see the 20th Autovia rally and we are attempting to get as many Autovias together as possible (the record to date is 5).

I am attempting to locate and contact the owner of  the "special saloon" that is somewhere in Europe.
The car was sold by H&H at an I W M Duxford  sale and subsequently sold by Lankes Auction house in Germany after which contact has been lost.

Could I ask through your pages that if the owner of someone that knows of the cars whereabouts(or indeed any missing Autovias) contact Gordon Thomas through This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

A 1931 23.8 Ho Sunbeam
 This photo taken somewhere in Germany shows me as the proud owner after buying the car from the original owner for £70 then driving none stop down to Munich where I was staying for a few weeks. Whilst there driving fast on unmade roads broke a half shaft, but luckily a Mercedes Lorry one was altered to fit. Those were  the days, about 1959. I do hope the car still exists as I loved it, but being rather hard up it was rather thirsty so had to buy something smaller.
