The Swift Registers

A Register of all Swift cars known to survive was set up in 1962 by the Bean Car Club which caters for owners of all makes of veteran and vintage vehicles. It also set up Registers for ABC, Vulcan and Bean cars and commercial vehicles which were all part of the Harper-Bean group in 1920.

The Swift Car register was transferred to the Swift Club when it was formed in 1985 and a Register of Swift Cycles was started in 1999.

The Registers contain details of all Swift cars and Cycles known to be in existence, together with the last known owners name and location. At present (Sept 2010), there are 212 cars and some 200 cycles on the Registers. Their details are very helpful to determine the model and manufacturing date of the one or two 'new' Swift vehicles which seem to be found every year. The details are also useful to authenticate 'new' cars when applying to the licensing authority to retain the original registration number.

The full details of cars and cycles and their owners are strictly confidential to the club Secretary and Registrar and are not disclosed to any third party, the Club members or commercial organizations without the owners permission when possible. An abridged version of the Registers is sent to all Swift Club members on a 'strictly confidential' basis. The abridged version does not contain the owners address other than the county, /country.

Owners of Swift cars and cycles thought not to be on the Registers, or where the registration details have changed, are invited to send details of their vehicle on one of the Registration forms below which can be printed out.

It is not necessary to be a member of the club to register your car or cycle, but you would be very welcome to join us.
