SS 100 DHC from 16 May 1939 Motor magazine


During 1938 S.H. "Sammy" Newsome at the time a successful SS Jaguar Distributor who had been very successfully campaigning an SS 100 in Rallies & Hill climbs asked William Lyons to build a deluxe version of the popular SS 100 sports car.

Lyons reportedly told Newsome he already had too many different models to build.  Newsome contracted with the factory for 50 bare SS 100 chassis to build his idea for a deluxe SS 100 DHC with roll up windows & a wider body. Early in 1939 he has Avon Coach builders of Coventry build 2 prototypes.

World war 2 cancelled any further production

I am indebted to http://www.strever.com/avon/ from where I found this information in this section about the SS100 DHC.

Gavin Fairfax Ltd of Virginia Water -Triumph Car dealers 43

Gavin Fairfax Ltd of Station Parade, Virginia Water. Surrey are the feature business in this short article.


Gavin Fairfax Ltd traded for many years from premises adjacent to the railway station in Virginia Water, Surrey, UK.
They sold and serviced serveral brands from the BMC, British Leyland group. The tax disc above is from the era when the garage was a Rover area dealer and also held franchise for Austin, Morris and Triumph motor cars.
They held the Rover franchise over a long period as this rear window sticker show. As the car shown is a early Rover P6 the sticker must date from before 1970 and could be as early as 1963.

The business was bought by the Stratstone Group.  Gavin Fairfax Limited company number 831261 was established 15 December 1964 and changed its name to Statstone (Virginia Water) Limited on 1 January 1977.

A liquidator was appointed to a company called Gavin Fairfax (Laleham) Limited on 6th March 1972.

There was an earlier business with the same name as evidenced by the earlier window sticker illustrated above.  Unfortunately, as of yet, I have been unable to find any details other than its name.  I have read that they sold Jaguar cars at some point in their history.

I have Gavin Fairfax Ltd listed as Rover and Land Rover dealers in 1961 and as selling the Bond Equipe GT.

Gavin Fairfax Garage - a Memory of Virginia Water

I found this on the Francis Frith website:

Does anyone have any memories or photos of the garage at station parade, I lived there from 1957 to 1960 at flat Number 3, the building was typical of the 1930s with white rendered walls and castle style crenelations at the top. I recall the neon signs at the front elevation of the building (glowing in red and green) at night it was a BP branded petroleum sales site with Standard Rover and Jaguar marques. a showroom and a cafe at the end of the building near the station.
A memory shared by Keith Norris on Dec 9th, 2007.
