Registration BK 2287.

This veteran beast is from the first generation of motoring.

The engine is a 700cc AC unit positioned under the driver, with hub clutch and two speed gearbox.

It has completed the London-Brighton Pioneer Run and is MOT’d and on the road.

1914 Warrick Motor Carrier, registered BK 2287

01motorcarrier

This is my 1914 Warrick Motor Carrier, registered BK 2287.

02motorcarrier

The Veteran Car Club, which issued its pioneer certificate, confirms that it’s a 1914 model, which makes it eligible for the prestigious Pioneer Run. It has taken part several times, most recently in 2007.

According to its logbooks, it was first registered on 12th March 1921. This is the year that registration became compulsory in Great Britain, so many older vehicles show 1921 as their initial registration date.

Steering is of the tiller variety. Push it to turn right, pull it back to turn left. It’s easy enough to get used to it, though the turning circle is not brilliant by comparison with later vehicles.

The controls are on the tiller steering column. Throttle is the top lever and the choke is below. Pulling either control lever toward you advances it.

The shorter handle, above the tiller steering, is for the gears

When the gear column is forward, you’re in neutral (as in these pictures). First and second gears are obtained by pulling the gear column toward you. The petrol tank can also be observed above.

The driver sits above the engine.

There is some vibration at a standstill, though it eases when you drive off. Prior to starting, you prime the carb (above) and turn on the petrol tap.

You can see the advance-retard lever in the pictures above and below, on the right side of, and just below, the seat. It is adjusted once you’re on the move.

You can also see the hub gear and clutch from each side in the photos above and below.

The starting handle is on the left of the picture below.

The Warrick’s Commercial Box

When I bought the Warrick, it had been refitted with a home-made passenger section at the front (see below).

The previous owner had this installed many years ago, and used it like this for the Pioneer Run (pictured below in the 2007 Run) so that his mechanic could come along for the trip.

The Warrick’s original box is in excellent condition for a wooden structure that’s nearly 100 years old.
