This is the only car of its type in existence.
The Anderson Special Mark II car is the second of a series of four 'Specials' designed and built by James Anderson during the 1920s and 1930s. The cars all took part in road and hill-climb races.
The appearance of the Mark II is not unusual to us now. But in the 1920s it seemed very different from other cars.
James Anderson followed his father into the family garage business at Newton Mearns, just outside Glasgow. He was a modest man with astounding creativity and inventiveness.
He devised and patented innovative machine tools, such as the revolutionary Vertimax vertical lathe. Some of his machine tools were adopted by major manufacturers.
Film and film-making was another of James Anderson's passions.
