Freestone & Webb DE36 Whereabouts

Post by Barrie » Tue Mar 19, 2019 8:32 pm

[*]Does anyone know if the one-off Freestone and Webb DE36 (a very well proportioned car!) still exists.
If so where is it?
I understand that it was supplied to its first owner in Jamaica. Is that correct?

Chassis 51238 ( K 7999) Freestone & Webb Special was for sale a couple of years ago in Jamaica.
The car was totally vandalised and nearly was on its way to the scrap yard.
It was bought by someone in the USA with the intention to restore it.
The sister car FW 1950 chassis No 52801 was sold to the USA in 1979.

Thank you.
If there is any further info I'd be grateful to hear.
I hadn't realised it was one of two as I thought it was unique.
In my eyes it's the best looking of the DE36s

Thank you for that last photo which I'd not seen before.
Are there any others out there or, even better, of the interior.

Whilst having a tidy-up I came across this black and white photograph.
On the back is stamped Freestone & Webb LTD Feb 49
It appears it was taken at the same location as the picture I posted on 19th March and that the driver is the same.
