1947 Vauxhall 10 - first drive in 41 years

I'm afraid this is now for sale. Have a look at eBay and you will see - have a bid if you would like to own it. I'm afraid I just don't have time to do the work (and won't be hppy with a rough job if I rushed it) so it will have to go. See http://www.abs-zero.com (click through to 'the old site') and also the listing on eBay at http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=200946082683 (starts 9pm on Wed 24th July 2013). Thank you to everyone who has looked at this and taken the time to write a nice comment - they really have been appreciated. :-) I still own the other Vauxhall 10 and will keep that a while longer as it's already part restored. If anyone wants to see it, I'll make a similar video and upload it. My plan to have two Vx10 cars restored to pass on to my two boys will have to wait a while... :-) If you've seen my other video of this car you will know I bought it after it had been stored in a barn for over 40 years. I have since rebuilt the front brakes and needed to turn it around in the garage to get better access to the rear brakes to rebuild them too. Unfortunately the starting of the engine is missed off the clip, but as I've now rebuilt the fuel pump and put new fuel in the tank, starting up is pretty easy - pull out the choke, turn on the ignition and press the starter. There's still no coolant in the engine, hence why I turned off the engine before stopping. This is the first time I've attempted to drive it at all, so a big moment for me. Hope you enjoy it, feel free to comment if you like.

Moskvitch 407 first start after 30 years
My friend bought a good old Moskvitch from 1960 which sat since the 1970's. He finally got it started after several weeks of preparation. The engine was stuck and when it first started it ran on three cylinders only. Probably a defective valve.

1919 Buick First start since 1952
This is the first startup of this 1919 buick six roadster that had been sitting in a barn in ohio since 1952. It was parked there with a bad differential. My boss bought it on Ebay and i gently disassembled the engine, cleaned out the 50+ year old oil, freed up the piston rings and put it back together. I had to substitute a newer coil to get a strong spark and had manually filled the float bowl of the carburetor. No fuel pump was hooked up or water in the engine hence the short run time. This is a very cool early overhead valve engine with an aluminum crankcase,cast iron cylinder block, roller tappets, exposed valvetrain, zero gap piston rings, and electric start. This car had about 14,000 miles on the odometer. Enjoy the video! Check out my other video/slide show for engine disassembly pictures.

This is the first time anyone has attempted to run it, note the 6V electrical system being Boosted by a 12V jump pack - OK for short periods if the 6V battery is good. The fuel system is still unproven at this point, so running was achieved by pouring a small amount of fuel directly down the carburettor - there's no reason why it shouldn't fire up straight away in normal use, but here it presumably starts out flooded. Oh the joys of carburettored engines!
