Produced by Singer & Co Ltd, this was the first Singer 1½ litre Le Mans to be built of a total of only 71 cars. It was supplied new to Joseph Patrick, who went on achieve major successes in pre-war trials and rallies with the car.
1934 was a particularly good year for both the car and Joseph Patrick; he won The Watkinson Cup for the best performance by a member of a visiting club in the Abingdon to Abingdon Trial, The Bernard Norris Cup in the ‘Sunbac’ Colmore Trophy Trials and an award in the Brooklands One Hour Trial. In 1935, Patrick won the P. J. Evans Cup for the best performance for over 1100cc in the Abingdon to Abingdon Trial with no marks lost!
Following a successful racing and rallying career, the car ended up in Scotland after it had been purchased and later stored there by a sea captain. With some help tracing the car from the Singer Owners Club, the car was purchased by The Patrick Collection in 1986. After joining the collection, it underwent a complete rebuild and restoration in order to bring it back to its former glory. In 2023 The Patrick Foundation donated the vehicle to the British Motor Museum.
