1930 Gordon England Minor Two-seater special

Gordon England had an aeronautical engineering background and used these skills to good effect during the twenties when his lightweight bodied Austin Seven ‘Gordon England Cup’ models achieved much competition success at Brooklands. In 1929 he launched two Morris Minor special models, a Stadium Saloon and this pretty open two-seater. The Morris factory did not have such a model in their range and it is reported that Morris Motors approached the Gordon England concern with a view to G.E. designing a version that could be produced in volume at Cowley. The resultant model was named the Semi-Sports and 744 were eventually produced upto July 1931.

VO 4346 was a 1930 Nottingham registered car and had been fitted with polished wheel discs, a popular accessory at that time.
