"One of only three Singer Le Mans Special Speed Models imported new into North America via Revecomb Motors of Vancover, BC. This car was sold to its first owner in San Diego, California, where it became a well-known sight at Four Cylinder Car Club events in the 1950's. It was used in local competition and featured in the Salon section of the March 1953 issue of Road & Track magazine. Only 135 Special Speed Models were produced in 1936 by Singer Motors in the UK, which has no connection with the Singer Sewing Machine Company in the USA."
