Another exotic Astura is the Farina bodied car CYY 45 - see this photo taken at the Sliding Pillar Rally in 2002. At that time I think it was owned by Ron Francis. Where is it now I wonder?

No, Doug's Astura is CXT 596 distinguishable by the cyclops head light. I'll post a picture when I can find it!

Robin.

P.S. James, might you be a 'luck sod' one day who inherits his father's Astura?  Wink

So, did Doug's dad have another Astura as well as CXT 596 which Doug says was his father's from new and is in original condition? The oldest club register I have is 1969 and that lists Doug as owning CXT 596 and his father a Flaminia GT and a Ferrari GT. The '69 register doesn't list CYY 45.

Yes he did, i remember talking to my dad about this car whilst looking at it and he told me the history, i may be wrong about the from new bit if its the red car that was from new but dougs father definatly owned it, the cyclops car was fitted with a supercharger whilst dougs dad owned it and the green car was just standard, seemed to be the trend to own more than 1 in the "good old days" Eddie Gee had atleast 3 at 1 point  Shocked one of which is my fathers

As I understand it, Astura CXT 596 is chassis 33-5142 and was UK registered 8th May 1936.  The engine was 91.539.  In 1952 it belonged to J G Crowther, and in 1967 to Douglas Crowther.  It is a 3rd Series open 4-seater.
Attached a photo of it in 2010 found on the web I think.

Astura CYY 45 is chassis 33-5272 and was UK registered 11th August 1936.  The engine was 91.1027.
In 1952 it belonged to J G Crowther and later to David Clayton and then Ron Francis.  It is a 3rd series short chassis with 4-door pillarless saloon body by Farina.
Attached a photo by Theo Jansen, also from ca. 2010.  I have a better one as a print, yet to scan.
