GY 8404

IOTW no.538 (see archive) also shows an image of this 1932 Morris Minor Saloon taken in the early post war years. This second glass plate scan was taken around the same period and shows the car alongside a 1934 Minor Saloon variant (BNO 505) and the family’s beautiful Lagonda sports saloon. Sadly, BNO 505 is not currently recorded on the DVLA database although GY 8404 is mentioned there, albeit nothing is known post 1990. Ken Martin does have a photo of GY 8404 (reproduced here with thanks) which was taken in 1987 at the Morris Register’s Stanford Hall rally. It seems likely therefore that the car has survived as it looked well cared for just three years prior to its last recorded DVLA mention. Is the current whereabouts of this Minor known by anyone?
