First delivered to Mr A J Hammond on 22nd June 1927 it was subsequently “sold for scrap” in 1964!
Fortunately it was not broken up, but was in fact saved by a Mr Ralph Ferrie of Brownhills, Staffs. and some time later in 1973 it was “adopted” by the viewers of ATV Today, the nightly news programme. A total, televised, ground up restoration then ensued. It was even christened “Harriet” and introduced to the storyline of TV soap “Crossroads”
The ATV restoration is included in the extensive history file in the form of the most incredible DVD. They even manage to interview one of the car’s early owners!
Despite the full restoration, it manages to retain a very “original” feel, with lots of fantastic features including a period picnic basket.
Well known to the everyone in the world of classic Morris motoring and all associated clubs, this really is a true one-off.
Opportunities to purchase such note-worthy classics with such extensive and well documented histories are very rare and we anticipate a great deal of interest in this TV star!
