IOTW no.604

At first glance this just looks to be a run-of-the-mill snapshot of what could be a 1932 Family Eight. A closer look reveals that it isn’t. Athough this car is fitted with sidelights it doesn’t have an OHC engine under its bonnet, while the give-away is that other than a development model, the long wheelbase Minor was never fitted with a short ‘fluted’ radiator as installed on the 1932 season short wheelbase models. The last clue is that BNO 475 is a June 1934 Essex registration making it a final season Minor Four-door Saloon with of course the upright headlamps as seen on all SV models.
