IOTW no.697

By October 5, 2023IOTW

Now this is an interesting snapshot. A quick glance reveals the Minor to be a 1932 sliding-head saloon with its distinctive constrasting colour inset in the door panel. A second look rapidly puts paid to that theory, as an OHC Minor radiator adorns the chassis as do Lucas 1120 side lamps along with 29-31 Minor wheels. The car’s Surrey registration (PG 7483) reveals the truth as it was issued in the spring of 1930. So at some point in the pre-war period its body was changed. The all important body joint on the scuttle is obscured by the two females, so what bonnet was fitted and was the fuel tank still scuttle mounted?
