30068 is an R3, sold 29th October 1934 to Lancashire Dyno & Crypto for us as a demonstration unit for Publicity Films.

Fitted on a girder base, with 110V alternator and a DC generator. 2 flywheels, Wico mag No 618, later changed to No610 on the 27th December 1934.

Radiator cooled.

I don't know if 'Publicity Films' was a company or just what the vehicle was going to do. As the name was capitalised I assume it was a company.

Yep a rather interesting one that, shame it's been converted to rotary magneto, I wonder if the internals are still intact.

Well it doesn't look like I'll be getting to find out - Mr Dinning has gone dark on me

Well, I now have the chance to find out. Following a long grind of a drive south & around the M25 (how can any road be so jammed up on a Sunday?) it is now sat in my garage.
The seller had info that the engine had come off a cockle boat - doesn't sound too likely unless it was sold off from its demonstration unit job.
