1930 ASTON MARTIN

Owned by Brian McMillan.

The back view of my car was taken coming into a beautiful valley in Scotland. Tony, in photo, is 6 foot 6 and it was a tight fit with both of us plus luggage for 6 weeks in the little car

This Aston was the personal car of Bert Bertelli who was the owner and chief engineer of AM from 1927 to 1935.

     It ran in the first RACQ rally in 1932 driven by Dusty Rhodes.

It is a 1.5 litre single O/H cam, twin SU engine with pressure fed cam and crank from a dry sump. It also has a split cooling system so that the head gets the coldest water.

     The Ulster model, which would do 100mph, had bigger carbs and a modified cam.

     A delight to drive on good winding country roads, with 14" drums to pull it up quickly.

     It is geared to do 100kph at 3300rpm. I have seen 4400 and it should rev safely to 6000 though not on its small carbys
