Olle Ljungström has identified this car as being Chassis no. YX5107. Olle says, "8-litre YX5107, one of H L Good's two 8-litres (the other being YM5036). This being the original shape of Thrupp & Maberly saloon. Subsequently modified with odd boxlike wings according to Good's request. Sold by Sotheby´s in 1991. See BDC Rewiew 241 p. 315 (2005) for details and newer photo. Note however that chassis number stated there twice differ and unfortunately both are incorrect! — Jan 30, 2009
