1928 Willys-Knight 70A saloon
Big vintage saloons offer character and usability well beyond their financial value, and enjoy loyal support. American examples are especially usable, being built to cross the vast distances of the US without missing a beat. Brightwells’ Willys-Knight is unusual, having been built by the company formed by Willys and Crossley, based in the north west of England. This three-litre straight-six example had a body-off restoration in the 1990s and the vendor, who bought it in 2011, has clearly looked after it well. Said to drive well, lusty old saloon car motoring doesn’t get much better than this.
