PN 8736 – 1932 Minor homebuilt special
This vehicle was first registered in East Sussex in early 1932 and possibly started life as a Minor 5 cwt van, the door shape and height providing the clue. The van rear section and roof look to have been modified to resemble a shooting-brake, although this is not clear. The photograph was probably taken in the late fifties or early sixties as is indicated by the attire of the young men (students?) present. The radiator mascot appears to be a plastic goldfish while the leather strap and bulge on the bonnet top are possibly un-necessary adornments, affixed to indicate that something with more than 19bhp lies hidden beneath.
