Joe Rayner‘s 1932 Morris Minor Two-seater (ZV 83851) is seen here on a short foray away from base to Lackandarra Upper, County Waterford, where the imposing Monavullagh Mountains can be seen in the background.

This photo was taken at Beaulieu in May 1967 according to the handwritten caption on its reverse. The car is an unidentified 1934 Morris Minor Two-seater wearing polished wheel discs, an aftermarket accessory that was available from motor factors such as James Grose, Brown Bros and Halfords among others throughout the thirties. The Network’s photo archive contains just one other similar photo of a Minor, the wheel discs in that instance appearing on a 1930 Gordon England Two-seater Minor special.
