Star 10/12 Motor Car, 1912


One of four models exhibited by Star of Wolverhampton, UK, at the 1912 Olympic Motor Exhibition is this Star 10/12hp 'Victoria' 2.4 litre motor car. With room for two on the large leather seating, with an additional 'dickey' seat (a much more simple wooden bench fitted to the rear of the car which can be folded away easily) for two more (folded away in this image, however in more recent photographs I will upload at a later date, the dickey seat is on display and ready for use), this Star 'Victoria' Coupe is now on display at the Black Country Living Museum, Dudley, UK. It is a fantastic example of a typical late Edwardian car
