I have very little information about the car before it came to me.
It was owned by a lovely couple from Darlington who sold it because it was too small for their coming family. They sold it to a friend of mine who then sold it to me. I don't know much more than that.
Well, I've just had an amazing bit of news. (14 April 2020). Thanks to Lynne Bembridge for this information.
The car was owned by Lynne's father, John Meadowcroft who lived in York who bought the car shortly after the war, probably about 1948 and it was presumably bought from a garage in York.
He loved the car and maintained it meticulously and only parted with it in 1955 to buy a house. Despite being well maintained there were many times, particularly in winter when the starting handle had to be used. That was probably a reflection of the battery technology of the day which wasn't a patch on today's battery capabilities.
During his ownership he lent it to his twin brother to go on honeymoon with as his brother only had a motorcycle. One memory came from John's wife who often recalled the case of brake failure when going down a hill in Filey. Thankfully the situation was controlled and there was no damage or injury. All the photos are black & white and don't show that it was dark green in colour.
