VAHGUARD: BRITISH MOTOR HERITAGE MORRIS MINOR 1000 60th ANNIVERSARY COLLECTION MOD

The Morris Minor was launched at the 1948 London Motor Show, Britain's first since the cessation of hostilities, alongside another legend the Jaguar XK120. In its original form it used a 918cc side valve engine and its headlights were mounted low in the grille. Foreign market legislation forced the lights up into pods on the wings in 1951 and then, when Morris Motors merged with Austin in 1952 to create BMC, the Minor received the Austin-designed 803cc A-Series engine. This was updated to create the 'single screen' Minor 1000 in 1956. The Minor was Alec Issigonis' first complete car design and possessed extremely surefooted handling which was many years ahead of its competitors. Engine: 948cc 4IL OHV Power: 37bhp@4750rpm Torque: 50lb.ft@2500rpmMaximum speed: 73mph 0-60mph: 25.9secs Produced: 1,303,331 (all Minors).

VANGUARD : BMW AUSTIN SEVEN DELUXE THE 4th OLDEST SURVIVING MINI MODEL

Austin Se7en De Luxe, Farina Grey, A-A2S7/108: The Fourth Oldest Surviving Mini. Gladys Hobro bought XLL 27 new in 1959 and kept it until June 1986 but only used it when she and her family returned home to Bognor Regis from Khartoum, Sudan, where they were based. Second owner, Chichester-based David Gallimore, never started his intended restoration and offered the 30,041 mile car for sale in 2011. It was purchased, in the original but very rusty state modelled here, by three Mini enthusiasts from Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, Richard Bremner, Bryan Smart and Robert Lancaster-Gaye. In 2012, having proved the car's production history, significance and originality, they consigned it, unrestored, to Bonham's auctioneers. They'd initially feared losing their Pounds 10,000 investment so were amazed when it sold for Pounds 40,250. Researched with the help of the BMIHT Gaydon.

VANGUARD - VAUXHALL ASTRA 1.7CDTi - WEST MIDLANDS POLICE


The Police Information Technology Organisation (PITO) chose the five door Astra as its recommendation for the basic section vehicle classification. This means that many forces are running Astras and finding that the economy and longer service-life offered by the diesel variants is a real bonus. The low-revving nature and flat torque curve of a turbo diesel suit the urban environment in which these vehicles work and also offers a higher resale value, something that has become a more important consideration to the police in recent years. The car modelled was used by the West Midlands Force, working around the Birmingham area from 2004. Shop here

This maroon MKII 1800 capture something of the look of this ugly but cavemous car. For some reason we're not convinced by the front, around the bonnet/grille area, but the rest of the land-crab is well captured and the finish is nicely worked. It's just that front..Shop here
