1949 Vincent Rapide

Sold 04/21/2015

I have to sell a 1949 Rapide unfortunately. I have a bit of provenence, it runs fine and has all matching cases and frame, and is registered with the VOC, who have sent me the paper on the original manufacture dates, specs, and tests.

Originally built for Canadian Export, it was purchased by a collector and stored with a large collection until his death. One picture shows it at an exhibition in England with a sign noting an engine rebuild by a notable British Vincent expert. I would like to get 60 thousand US for this beautiful example.
