Noxal Sidecar double adult

I travelled from Bath to Plymouth from 1948 to 1952 in a Double adult Noxal sidecar. My older brother and I sat in the back my mother in the front. It had red upholstery and distinctive flutes each side of the bonnet like a Vauxhall car only with the narrowest point at the tip of the nose and the widest part near the windscreen. It was pulled by a 1936 Norton Model 18. I have never seen a picture or a Noxal brochure showing this model and would like to see one. Thank you.

I saw a Noxal at at a swap meet here in Ohio about six years ago. I just dug out the photos of it from a dusty box in storage. A good friend has a Brough to which he'd be interested in attaching an English chair. If you have an interest in the photos I have, I will gladly e-mail them to you. You may use them however you like. Cheers! Richard Sheckler

I also have a couple of snaps of a VP aluminium sidecar. I think the 'Titanic II' was a 'Britannia Launch Saloon'. With some dimensions and a few accurate and detailed views of the undercarriage, I think I could build one. I'd use real teak wood decks on it.

The same seller also had this VP chair. Before these two, I had never seen or heard of either one. I don't know what became of them. It's possible a Brit collector bought them.

All the best!

I see that you had in your web site a Noxal sidecar catalog from 1937. Can you help me find a copy of this catalog?
