Argyll in 1948 A J Cronin novel – any photos?

In his 1948 novel, Shannon's Way, A. J. Cronin wrote of a "...brass-bound Argyll ambulance." Are there photographs of such a vehicle? Are there any such that have been restored? The Argyll automobile was surely a beautiful automobile!

Re: Value of 1912 14hp Colonial Argyll

Hi Robert
in reply to Robert Gibson Value of 1912 14hp Colonial Argyll



Argylls strangely have not a great following in Scotland although I know of five here (in Scotland). I am rebbuilding two at the moment and if you want to send me some photos I will attempt to advise.

Cheers
