On Friday August 16, Mecum will auction this K2, chassis #1804 as lot #F150. This car was originally shipped to Los Angeles (Moss Motors?) on December 1, 1950. The car was originally painted blue, but is now looking good in BRG. This car is unique in that it was one of a few K2's to come equipped with a DeDion rear end. The car now sports Hallibrand wheels, Brooklands wind screens, and a Cadillac 331 with dual Carter carbs. 1804 was featured in the June 2010 issue of Auto Trader's "Classic Cars & Parts."

On Thursday August 15, Mecum will auction this L type, chassis #743 as lot #T121. This same car appeared on Ebay a few years ago and doesn't look like it has changed much. The car was originally delivered to the Harris dealership on December 2, 1948. It was originally painted maroon with brown interior. Unfortunately we don't have any ownership information on this car, nor do we know when it was imported into the States. To learn more about the car and see more photos, please click here to visit Mecum's web site. If you like historic tour's...or even mud-plugging rallies, the L type is a great car.
PS: Just over 190 L's were built and we know of 53 that still exist!
