In the 1920s and 1930s, Singer was one of the largest English car manufacturers, which means it's a make with a long tradition in Great Britain. In 1954, it was acquired by the Rootes Group as a luxury brand (along with Hillman, Humber and Sunbeam), and in 1967, Rootes was taken over by Chrysler. Singer production was discontinued in 1970. From September 1959 to August 1960, 12,491 Model III A Gazelles were built. They were typical mid-class sedans with limited editions of station wagons and convertibles. The model's distinctive feature is its "rollover fins," which were also used for the 1958 Chevy Impala. The Model III A was the only model to have twin Solex carburetors.
The history of Book's Singer Gazelle is quite colorful. The car was first registered on November 30, 1960, in New York. Back then, the sticker price was $2,522. From 1975 to 1985, the car was registered in Miami, Florida. From 1985 to 1990, it was not registered. It was then imported to Germany. The Singer has been an "honorary citizen" of Münster since October 21, 1990, and Book has gradually completely restored it to match the original.
For classic car fans, the technical specifications of the Singer Gazelle are presented below: 4 cylinders, 1,494 cubic centimeters, approx. 60 horsepower. Length: 13 feet, 10 inches, Weight: 1.2 tons, Speed: 84 mph). Despite its small size, the car has a trailer hitch. And there's yet another special feature: The model can also be driven as a "Coupe de Ville" version - semi-open with the roof over just the back seats.
