Special:

- At the time Singer was one of the most prolific manufacturers of motorcars in the UK. By 1928 Singer was Britain's third largest car maker after Austin and Morris.

- The 10/26 replaced the earlier Singer 10 Model and was fairly advanced for its day. It is easier to drive than many other cars of the time.

- This two-seater with dicky seat has a four-speed manual gearbox + reverse operated by gate change mechanism, a bronze Solex downdraft carburettor, a central throttle pedal, a 12-Volts electric system, odometer, oil pressure gauge, amp meter, electric starter, a 32 liter fuel tank, coil ignition system and rear wheel drive.

- The ladder-frame chassis with steel body has a 90 inch wheelbase, worm & nut steering, original cloth wiring, ROTAX (London) head lights, side lights and switch box, quarter-elliptic leaf spring front suspension, longitudinal semi-elliptic leaf spring rear suspension, standard Dunlop Cord Five Grooved 50X19” tires and mechanical drum brakes all round (1925: the first year that the Singer featured 4-wheel brakes).

- A rear luggage rack, removable side windows/curtains, side mounted spare tires and a 2-gallon "SINGER" petrol can on the running board were optional.

- Both two- and four-seater open top models (Roadster and Tourer) were available, as well as Saloon and Coupé variants.
