This car is currently being restored by Kevin Davie in Victoria, Australia

Jon Leighton discovered the existence of the Buckler register some years ago at a traction engine rally where the register had a stand. He spoke to somebody at the stand about his square tube Buckler and was told that there was no possibility of this car being a real Buckler as Bucklers never made a chassis using square tube. Jon was a good friend of Derek's and as he had shipped it direct from the factory to Australia was a little disappointed by the response from the register. Some years later a photograph of this car at the factory was discovered.




"Can you tell me if the square tubed DD2 has a Mistral shell which was originally made with dark green gel coat (BRG)? If so, it will be the one I rode in with Granddad at 115 mph (down Amersham Road).
It had a Coventry Climax engine, was fully completed at the works apart from details of body finishing.
They were building a wooded crate for it to be exported to Australia. That is all that I remember." M.Buckler
