This SS 100 was delivered though the Parker's Bolton agency in Manchester, England, in 1938. It would spend the first 24 years of its life in the United Kingdom, before coming into the car of Eugene Faust, who brought it to New York in 1962. It remained with Faust for seven years and during that time received a restoration. Its original engine, number M 545 E, had been replaced with number M 499E earlier in its life. During the restoration, Faust replaced the original fenders, but they are still with the car as spare parts.
Ron Keno of Mohawk, New York purchased the car in 1969 and kept it for many years, driving it only during the summer and fall seasons.
The car was painted gunmetal gray for much of its life. It has recently been repainted a dark blue with a red leather interior.
In 2009, this SS 100 Roadster was offered for sale at the Sports & Classics of Monterey auction presented by RM Auctions. The car was estimated to sell for $250,000 - $350,000 and offered without reserve. As the gavel fell for the third and final time, the lot had been sold for the sum of $341,000, including buyer's premium.
