Maudslay 17hp 'Sweet Seventeen' Landaulette, 1909
This large Maudslay 17hp Landaulette is a good example of a motor car that you would most likely be seen driven by a Chauffeur, with the owner riding in the rear 'saloon' in privacy and comfort, and so would be a very exclusive style of body. This Maudslay 'Sweet Seventeen' was acquired from the Maudslay Motor Company by the Coventry Transport Museum in 1962, and the decision has been taken to conserve the vehicle in it's current, possibly original, condition rather than restore it.
