YD 4198

Side valve chassis SV 13467 left Cowley at the end of February 1932 and was shipped to the Jensen Brother’s coachworks in West Bromwich.  It was then fitted with one of their new 2+2 McEvoy special bodies and registered by Somerset County Council as YD 4198 shortly afterward. This photo was taken in 1971 when the car was in the ownership of James Peacop in Cheshire, remaining in his custodianship until 2017 when it was sold at a Brightwell’s auction, achieving a record sale price for a pre-war Minor. Sitting behind the McEvoy is 1930 Minor Tourer EC 6065, which at that time was extensively campaigned by Jim in VSCC trials events. This photo appears here courtesy of Mike Adams who owns the Jensen/McEvoy section of the Harry Edwards archive.
