TE 8277 was a 1929 Lancashire registration which adorned this Morris Minor Special. The image originates in the Harry Edwards Photographic Archive and is one of three photos of the car. Harry was a meticulous note taker, yet his register notes fail to mention this car at all. The special body bares some of the hallmarks of the 1933 military Minor scout/radio cars but could also well be that of a homebuilt. The greatcoat and military style hat of the man standing alongside TE 8277 might also indicate that he was a member of His Majesty’s armed forces, although that could be a Royal Mail cap badge!
