I(s)OTW no.642

Gordon England was a noted automotive personality throughout the Twenties and well on into the Thirties decades. His car designs owed much to his WWI aviation background. His use of  lightweight timbers and body bracing cross members coming directly from that experience. His ‘England’ Specials, produced at Wembley, all had rubber mounted bodies to help isolate the occupants from bumps and other uneveness in the road surface. The two models seen here were available to purchase from late 1929 to the early spring of 1931, the two-seater providing the inspiration for the Gordon England designed 1931 Morris Minor Semi-Sports model.
