Nothing is showing on their website as a Square Four, so difficult to say without any information.

If you are after an early Mark 2, this is on eBay - nothing to do with me.

Looks mostly standard, but the front wheel has been changed to the later full width alloy hub.
Sounds like a lot of work has been done on the engine, shame he couldn’t put a new seat cover on as the gaffer tape doesn’t look good.

Pete,
The square four in Pembrokeshire used to be my one, I sold it to Pembrokeshire classics , the bike has had extensive work done to it, Bennett longman alternator, lester Grant twin leading front brake, new club con rods fitted , the lower cases have been rebushed and line reamed. New tyres and brake linings and fitted with craven panniers. The speedo has been professionally rebuilt. It starts good and ran well. The last long trip I had done on it was from Shetland to the annual rally on the Isle of Man, via the Yorkshire Dales. I know the red is not correct but it was the only red the powder coasters up here had, the tank was resprayed by a man in Edinburgh. The engine is also fitted with a Morgo pump, the valve oil pipes have been fitted with John Reed Aspelby’s conversion. The seat has been reupholstered in black leather with red piping.
Hope that can help you. Dean Mitchell.

An interesting arrangement at the top of the plunger units too.

Wasn't the 'laid flat' Amal fitted to USA export bikes in place of the Solex I'd expect
to find on a 53 Mk 2?
