Ariel 1943 350cc OHV model W/NG “De Luxe” frame # XG 42472 engine # BH 35914
The basics of the “Red Hunter “ could be traced back to a Val Page design, but the name first came into use in the 1932 programme that had been designed by Edward Turner.
The new sporty OHV models in 250, 350 and 500cc capacity were very good-looking, reliable and sturdy.
They became great performers in off-road competition work as well as for fast touring and were produced till 1960, when Ariel management decided to concentrate on two strokes and phase out four stroke production.
From 1936 on the “ De Luxe” models were available as touring versions of the Red Hunters.
This machine is in unrestored and good running condition and it has been used for racing at some time in the past.
