The picture showing the aqua marine blue engine looks like a Gardner 6LW, I had a Scammell Pioneer for a while, which uses that particular engine.
Not Cafe related but a bit of useless infol.

kevin baggs of k. baggs trimming is doing this one.

about the most expensive bloke in the world but extremely good at what he does but he's who the customer insisted on.

as far as a clue, its a factory conversion to a british make the way karmann is to the germans.

and it was originally built in 1934.

The only Britiah conversions that speing to mind are Mulliner Park Ward, but I can't place the original car unless it's sommat daft like and Austin Ruby.

i'll put you out of your misery.

its a 1934 tickford bodied milman minx.

as far as were aware, the only one left. the customer has had it for 35years and never come across another.

he did all the woodwork and only had an original sales brochure to go by. i just had to make most of the panels to go round it before painting the thing.

will have it back in in a few weeks so can see it with the hood done.
