First proper sports car, purchased 12th September 1961, for £ 753.18.0
One of the early Mk1 Midgets, 948cc, and later supercharged. Second hand Shorrocks blower, bought for £ 30, totally transformed the performance, from 42 bhp to a mind boggling 68 bhp.
It would pull 7000 rpm in top with the aeroscreen fitted, 114 mph.
Used extensively for hillclimbs and sprints, it really was a wonderful handling little chariot.
Owned until 1964.
