This 1930 Gordon England Two-seater Minor special was first registered in Bradford, Yorks in mid-1930. Fred Dobson owned KW 8071 throughout the 1940’s while living in Weymouth, Dorset during which time the car was used extensively. It’s known that both of these photographs were taken while Fred and his wife were on holiday in Northwich, Cheshire, some 240 miles distant from Weymouth.  The Minor looks to be in reasonable condition and up to the task of transporting the couple around the Cheshire countryside. Period photographic evidence suggests that Gordon England produced more than just a few G.E. Two-seater Minor specials although none are known to have survived into the 21st century.  (Images courtesy of the Harry Edwards archive)
