As Secretary of the newly formed Polish Section of the RREC (illustrated article in the next RREC 'Bulletin') I have a query about a member's car. I have asked many questions on this forum concerning my 1975 Silver Shadow which some of you may remember. And received excellent and caring replies!
1934 20/25 GRF3 with Kellow-Falkiner coachwork has had a very chequered history before he purchased it and transported it to Poland from an Austrian museum (Johannes Vonier). It was in rather a dilapidated state. He has magnificently restored the car and you will see it gracing the Bulletin article. The member does not speak English.
I was just wondering if any knowledge of this car exists with you in Australia (I am Australian by the way). I have looked up all the internet posts on the important and historic firm Kellow-Falkiner as I must confess I did not know of their existence! Dreadful lapse...
I hopefully await your response or further information about this coachbuilder. I believe Tom Clark has mentioned them in his book "RR & B in a Sunburnt Country" but it is now prohibitively expensive to buy (300 GBP used).
Perhaps someone might scan the relevant entry and email it to me? Grateful for anything really...

I cannot find any reference to the car in the Tom Clarke book.
