1929/30 Gordon England Minor Saloon Special

This excellent ‘front-on’ view of a newly built G.E. Minor Fabric Saloon Special was taken outside the Gordon England ‘Palace of Industry’ workshops which were constructed for the 1924 British Empire Exhibition on the Wembley Stadium complex in N.W. London. The car’s fabric skinned body was mounted on rubber blocks, and had a single point greasing system. Further luxuries included a sliding ‘sunshine’ roof and Moseley ‘Float-on-air’ seating. Gordon England built at least three variations on this theme with similar bodies being mounted upon Austin Seven and Triumph Super Seven chassis. The Minor version was priced at £175 at launch in the late autumn of 1929. (LAT Red 7538)
