Extended Description

The VW Camper is a truly iconic vehicle that has a special place in many people’s hearts and now, following a partnership between Corgi and Coca-Cola we are pairing the two globally admired heavyweights into one fantastic little model. The history of the VW Type 2 starts with Dutch dealer Ben Pons, the first agent outside of Germany to sell VWs, who in 1947 drew a sketch of a Lieferwagen (light delivery van) that he saw a market for in Holland. VW's engineers worked on the concept and displayed the first vans in 1949. Production commenced in 1950 and other variants such as pick-ups, campers and buses were soon available. The 'split-window' was produced until 1967, by which time 1,477,330 had been made.

 

This 1:43 scale model of the VW Camper is of the highest Corgi Vanguards quality and dons a livery inspired by Coca-Cola in the 1960’s.  So, if you or someone special is looking to start or expand on their die-cast or Coca-Cola themed collection this would be the perfect starting point for the adult collector.

Description
The Type 2, affectionately known as ‘Camper’ in the UK was the second car model introduced by Volkswagen in 1950. Following the naming convention of the Type 1 (Beetle), it was predictably named ‘Type 2’ but depending on body style was officially known as the Transporter, Kombi or Microbus. The Type 2’s influence was commercially widespread with regards to forward control (vertical front) but also socially during the counterculture movement of the 1960s – hippie van/wagon inspired paintwork on a ‘Camper’ still remains just as iconic today.

Extended Description

'ESK', Squadron HQ, C Squadron, 3rd Battalion Scots Guards, 6th Guards Armoured Brigade, England, 1943
The British Churchill infantry tank may have been slightly cumbersome in appearance but was certainly one of the best Allied tanks of WWII. Championed by Winston Churchill, who insisted on the production of a new infantry support tank capable of crossing shell holes and trenches on the battlefield, the Churchill proved to be reliable and resilient, with thick frontal armour which made it impervious to all but the most powerful German guns. First used during the disastrous Dieppe Raid of 1942, the Churchill would go on to see action in North Africa, Italy and the Far East, before playing a significant role in the Normandy Invasion.

A rugged and flexible design, the Churchill was used as the basis for some specialist vehicles to overcome the strong German fortifications of the Atlantic Wall, such as the AVRE (Armoured Vehicle Royal Engineers), a tank featuring a 290mm mortar, which fired a short range charge designed to obliterate concrete bunkers. In addition to this, the Churchill Crocodile was a heavy mobile flame thrower, which was probably feared more than any other Allied vehicle by defending German troops.

Ahead of the invasion of Normandy that began on D Day, 6th June 1944, the 6th Scots Guards Tank Brigade was formed in England and included the 3rd (Tank) Battalion Scots Guards, equipped with Churchill tanks. In July 1944 they landed in France and would serve from then on mostly attached to the 15th (Scottish) Division.

Extended Description

Fans of cult TV show ‘Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons’, the follow up to Gerry Anderson’s spectacularly successful ‘Thunderbirds’ series, might be surprised to learn that the series celebrates its 50th anniversary this year, having ?rst appeared on screen in 1967! To celebrate 50 years of the indestructible Captain we’re proud to re-introduce a special edition of Captain Scarlet Classic Spectrum Saloon Car in commemorative packaging.

The Spectrum Saloon Car is a five-seater vehicle available for use by all Spectrum personnel. An 18 ft (5.48 m) long independent four wheel drive vehicle capable of speeds up to 200 mph (322 kmph), the SSC is powered by a gas turbine situated under the rear floor. Hot gas from the combustion chamber drives compressor and power turbines before being ejected through the rear grill.

The car's bodywork is made from lightweight resilient Fleetonium alloy fitted to a specially strengthened chassis with the main rib following the contour of the vehicle as a safety measure in case of overturning. The nose is strengthened for use as a ram and the tyres and the windscreen are all bullet proof.

The car is equipped with powerful quartz headlights, a long-distance viewing laser projector with optical telescope coupled to a TV screen in the cabin, an infrared beam with centrally mounted detector eye, sidelights and trafficators. The vehicle also boasts transverse gearing, independent suspension and magnetic brake drums which provide powerful controlled braking by means of electromagnetically generated opposing magnetic fields.

Road/tyre friction heat at high speeds is countered by wing intakes, while a central housing and a rear-mounted fin maintain the vehicle's stability at speed. Safety air bags are fitted as standard.

Ford Anglia 1200 Super, Platinum Grey & Ermine White 1:43 Scale

SKU/Part Number

VA00131 Limited Edition

Extended Description

The Anglia modelled is remarkably original and has covered just 16,000 miles since being registered to Mr George Irwin Smith on 1st May 1964, by Dinnages of Wivelsfield Road, Haywards Heath, West Sussex; the company having been the Ford Main Dealers for this area from 1956 to the present day. Current owner Colin Moir, a time-served Ford mechanic who runs his own garage business in Aberdeenshire, saw the car at the 2013 NEC Classic Car Show Silverstone Auctions' sale and, having wanted one when he was a Ford apprentice, purchased it on impulse. He then had to fly back to Scotland, pick up his low-loader, and drive back to Birmingham to pick it up!

In 1964 Mr Smith paid ¬£475 for the car, plus ¬£99.10s 6d purchase tax, a delivery charge from Ford's Halewood plant of ¬£13.00, and a fee for the number plates of  ¬£2. 5s. The road fund licence was ¬£5.10s and the garage charged ¬£1.15s.6d for fuel and oil. However, he received ¬£260 for the 1959 Morris Minor he traded in. Dinnages serviced the car regularly until October 1973, by which time it had covered only 13,647 miles. In 1977 it was sold to a second owner who stored the car perfectly but did few miles. It has never been welded or painted and current custodian Colin Moir, the car's third owner, enjoys taking it to local shows along with his 1930 Ford Model A.

Triumph Herald 1200, Monmouthshire Constabulary

Monmouthshire Constabulary, which became part of Gwent Constabulary on April 1st, 1967, were early adopters of the then experimental Unit Beat Policing (UBP) methods being trialled in the early 1960s. The concept took constables off the 'beat' and into 'panda cars', allowing them to cover much larger areas and still walk a beat to meet the public. However, the advent of radios meant the UBP cars were constantly responding to calls and the beat concept gradually faded away. This car was one of six Heralds bought in September 1966 purely for UBP work, a task the reliable tight-turning Herald was ideal for. They were not fitted with blue lights or sirens in this role.

During the late 1950s, as traffic density increased and radio technology improved, the government and police started to look at different methods of policing both beat patrols and traffic management. The first 'Z' car-style policing experiments were done in Kirkby, near Liverpool, in 1959 and entailed replacing beat policemen with uniformed two-man police patrols in cars. The term 'Z car' was coined by Colonel Eric St Johnstone, then Chief constable of Lancashire, during this trial and eventually became the title of a long running BBC TV series on which St Johnstone acted as technical advisor. These experiments led to the UK officially introducing Unit Beat Policing in December 1966. Some forces resisted initially but it had become almost universal by the end of 1968.

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 £10,000 investment so were amazed when it sold for £40,250.

When launched in 1959, designer Alec Issigonis' Mini revolutionised the automotive industry by pioneering the mass production of front-wheel-drive transverse-engine cars. Then Formula 1 World Champion team owner John Cooper, a friend of Issigonis, immediately saw its nimble handling as an opportunity to create a powerful competition car and, after building a prototype, persuaded BMC's bosses to produce it. It was launched in 1961, started winning races and rallies immediately, and became the cool must have car of the 1960s, selling in much larger numbers than initially envisaged. The Cooper S added more power and the example modelled here was a BMC press car tested, with enthusiasm, by Autosport magazine in August 1963.

Austin Mini Cooper S Durham Constabulary 1:43 Scale

SKU/Part Number

VA02540 Limited edition

Extended Description

The Cooper S modelled was a Durham Constabulary Traffic Car and was usually operated by a female crew of two. It was one of several Mini Cooper S vehicles on their fleet, as period photographs prove, but the car itself no longer exists. Mini Coopers were popular traffic cars in the North East as their size and spritely performance made them very agile in both the urban and countryside topography that makes up County Durham. Their front-wheel-drive configuration also provided good traction in harsh winter conditions on the North East's hills. They were rarely used for dual carriageway or motorway work though as Durham Traffic Police used more powerful Jaguar Mk2s in this role.

The Mini Cooper's potential as a police car was obvious immediately the 997cc model was introduced in 1961. However, it really came into its own in February 1964 when the 1275cc Cooper S version arrived. Its greater engine capacity meant extra torque so less performance was sacrificed when the vehicle was carrying the weight and aerodynamic penalties police traffic patrol cars incur when fully equipped. It became a popular vehicle in this role with police forces all over the UK, especially those in the North, and was used in a basically standard form except for the fitment of an alternator to handle the Police vehicles greater electrical load and often, but not in this car, motorsport derived twin fuel tanks to give greater range.

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 sidevalve 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.

SKU/Part Number

VA06310 Limited Edition

Extended Description

Morris Motors was founded in Cowley, Oxford, in 1913 when bicycle manufacturer William Morris launched his first car, the Oxford 'Bullnose'. In order to celebrate their Diamond Jubilee, Morris produced a special edition Marina 1.8 TC 4-door costing £1,500, which was £362 more than a standard TC. One was supplied to every BL dealer in the UK for the M registration of 1st August 1973. All were in a new colour, 'Citron' and featured a black vinyl-roof, black door-mirrors, dual-layer black pinstripe, navy blue cloth seats, Sundym glass, front fog lights, citron-trimmed grille, side repeaters, and 'Jubilee' wing badges. The Marina Owners Club believes only 5 roadworthy examples of the 2000 produced remain.

The 'Jubilee' modelled is owned by Sussex-based enthusiast Paul Viney who restored it over a 3 year period ending in 2010. He was inspired to do this because, when he was a child his Uncle, Keith Best, had bought a new Marina Jubilee in 1973 and Paul had loved it. He was subsequently given his Uncle's car as a surprise present on his 16th birthday and, after some work, put it on the road on his 17th. He passed his test 4 months later and, sadly, wrote it off after only 11 days. Twenty years later Paul decided to find and restore a Marina Jubilee and his immaculate current car, which has the Leyland Special Tuning steering wheel off the original, is the result.

Daimler Sovereign (Series 1) 4.2, Willow Green 1:43 Scale

SKU/Part Number

VA08805 Limited Edition

Extended Description

Jaguar's MD and founding father Sir William Lyons orchestrated the purchase of Daimler from the BSA group by Jaguar Cars in May 1960. Commercially this was a sensible deal as Jaguar needed more factory space, which they got, and Daimler, in comparison, were under utilizing their premises. Jaguar also received the compact 2.5-litre Edward Turner-designed V8 which, when fitted to the Mk2 bodyshell, produced a profitable car different in character to the Jaguar on which it was based. Jaguar was also able to put a stop to Daimler's SP250 'Dart' sports car and its projected replacement which, although modest in comparison, could have stolen sales from the soon to be announced E-type.

Following BMC's badge engineering lead, Jaguar produced a Daimler version of their world beating XJ6 which featured Daimler's classic fluted grille and different trim. Combined production of the XJ derived Daimler Series1 and 2  was 45,413, roughly a quarter of the type's entire output, and the Daimler sold to buyers who might have found a Jaguar just a little gauche in comparison; Daimler being long time holders of the Royal Warrant. Thus the name provided a useful extra income stream for relatively modest tooling investment. At that time the XJ was the most refined saloon car in the world and the revival of Daimler's classic 'Double-Six' badge when the XJ12 was announced in 1972 took Jaguar into direct competition with Rolls-Royce and Mercedes-Benz.

With supercar looks and V8 muscle the SD1 is many people's favourite police car, the livery suited the profile and it typified a new breed of high-visibility, high-speed, police traffic car. Probably the most famous police SD1 is C356 YST, the car restored in 2014 for the C4 TV programme 'For The Love of Cars', by Ant Anstead working with SD1 specialists Robsport International. It is now owned and exhibited by the Grampian Transport Museum and arrived there on January 10th, 2015. The following day its main police driver, Ian Slorach, came down to see it and enjoy some high-speed laps of the museum's track in his favourite patrol car. Early 1980s Aberdeen was rich with oil-money and local dealer, John Clark Specialist Cars, sold many rapid Audis and BMWs which owners 'tested' on the Stonehaven bypass after it opened in 1984. Grampian Police needed to deal with this and commissioned a police specification Vitesse 5-speed manual that sat slightly higher to aid pursuits over obstructions. To minimise cost and weight, while improving reliability, the car was stripped of its electric-windows, sound deadening and other luxury trim items. It entered service on December 10th, 1985, immediately becoming an urban-legend and object of fear among local supercar owners, and served until July 20th, 1988. It led a hard life, suffering several crashes and breaking three back axles, so definitely earned its retirement in the museum.

Ford Escort Mk1 1300E - Sahara Beige 1:43 Scale

SKU/Part Number

VA09525 Limited Edition

Extended Description

The 1300E modelled is one of the later Series 2 cars, built entirely at Halewood on Merseyside, and is considered one of the most original and best preserved examples in the UK. It was initially sold on June 19th 1974 by Ford dealer G. W. Johns, Chiswick, West London, to Mrs D.L. Hawkins of East Ewell, Surrey, who specified one extra, aMotorola AM radio costing £45. Her family retained the car until June 1984, at which time it had covered only 21,603 miles and was still wearing its original tyres! Second owner Robert Watt, from Walton-on-Thames, Surrey, used it sparingly and looked after it for 27 years before selling it in 2011.

When third owner, Keith Bennett, purchased it the odometer was still showing only 36,241 miles and the car was still in very good condition. However, as one of the co-founders of the Escort 1300E Owners' Club, he had it resprayed in the original colour to make it perfect for exhibiting at shows, and it became well known among Escort aficionados. Current owner, Dorset-based Barry Connolly, an Escort enthusiast and collector, bought it in June 2017 from a dealer, Appreciating Classics of Norfolk, and is delighted with the car, which complements the 4-door Sahara Beige Mk1 Escort XL he also owns. The car has still covered less than 43,000 miles, remains in excellent condition and is totally original except, thankfully, for some new tyres.

Triumph Stag Mk2 - Sapphire Blue 1:43 Scale

SKU/Part Number

VA10112 Limited Edition

Extended Description

The Stag modelled was purchased from BL Dealers F.W. Warwick and Son, Petersfield, Hampshire, on June 12th 1974, by David Ford, from Hayling Island. It cost £3146.56, including a £41.45 laminated windscreen and a whopping £292.98 for a Radio-Mobile 108SR cartridge 8-track player. He had major engine repairs carried out on the car in 1980, which resulted in a court case with the garage concerned; correspondence in which Ford stated "car worse than before" has remained with the car. Stag specialist Clive Tate did a full engine rebuild in 1990, after it had blown up while Ford was holidaying in Wales.

He obviously loved the car though, as he kept it until July 2011. David Ford had the body restored in 1994 at a cost of £4300, and second owner, Peter Harper, carried out more restoration work including having the seats retrimmed in the original shadow blue Ambla vinyl, a new blue hood, and new stainless steel bumpers. However, he only kept it 18 months before current custodians, Cambridgeshire-based David Currington and Helen Field, purchased it in December 2012. It's now covered just over 90,000 miles and, having been well looked after, is a very good but usable example. David and Helen have had the hard-top resprayed and the manual-overdrive gearbox rebuilt after reverse gear sheared off. They are enthusiastic members of the Stag Owners Club, attending events regularly, and enjoy using the car all year round.

Ford Cortina Mk3 2000E, Black

SKU/Part Number

VA10317 Limited Edition

Extended Description

The Cortina modelled was first registered on October 6th 1976 and still carries the Ford Special Vehicle Operations plate on its slam-panel announcing that it was a special order; black paint with a cloud grey interior. This is such a rare colour combination that the current owner believes it may have been unique. The first owner was an Essex-based printing company but, after being traded in, it was purchased from Tony Levoi Motors, Southend, Essex, when three years old by Warner Frederick J. Harvey, a local man.He used it until 1990, by which time it had only covered 59,000 miles, but after that date kept it stored in a dry garage until 2015.

Mr Harvey lightly customised it by fitting gold stickers showing his initials and crest above the door and boot locks, plus the words Special Edition on the rear wings and Black Lady on the front wings.Current owner Dorset-based Bruce McDermott, a long-standing Ford enthusiast, purchased it in 2017 because he was impressed by its excellent original condition; the rare interior was perfect and the car even still had its optional Carrello front spot lights. He then restored the car's faded paint, taking it down to bare metal before respraying it, and was surprised and pleased to find it, unusually, needed no welding. The 2000E (E for Executive), was the most expensive and luxurious Mk3 Cortina and is thus highly prized by collectors today.

The MGB modelled was registered in January 1974 and is presented as it was when new. However, it’s led an interesting life. When only eight years old, after being damaged, it was partially rebuilt by MG Specialists Chatham’s in Braintree, Essex, and returned to almost as-new condition.

Since then it’s been well cared for by a number of owners as the car’s substantial history file proves, before being purchased in 2013 by the current owner, David Trotter, who is based in the French Alps. He sent the car to well-known MG specialist Oselli, who fitted one of their fast-road 1950cc engines, converted it to left-hand-drive, and carried out various other works to improve it.

Land-Rover Series 1 80" - Poppy Red

SKU/Part Number

VA11118 Limited Edition

Extended Description

It became clear almost immediately after the Land-Rover's launch in 1948 that it could be used in a far greater number of roles than Rover had initially envisaged. The vehicle modelled is the first Land-Rover built for the fire service, and thus the first to leave the Solihull works painted red instead of green. It was actually the first of a batch of four dispatched in February 1949 to the Derbyshire Fire Service, all of which were handed over to Derbyshire's Divisional Fire officer at the same time.

They were among the last vehicles made using the R86 1948 model-year numbering sequence, before production of the subtly different 1949 model-year vehicles commenced. Other than the red paint they were all standard vehicles and were used to transport equipment and personnel around Derbyshire, a region where off-road capability is important because of the topography. All four were painted green to be sold off in the mid 1960s and the current owners, North Yorkshire-based Robert and Rachel Sargeant, spotted the vehicle on eBay in 2010. It was by then painted blue and had been off the road for 35 years but, although in very poor condition, it was complete and unmodified. The Sargeants embarked on a total restoration to return it to its original condition and livery that took 570 hours of work but was finished in time for the Series One Club's rally in June 2012.

Being somewhat cash strapped at the time, Chrysler UK were unable to develop a wholly new car to meet demand in the burgeoning new hatchback segment so effectively re-skinned and downsized the Avenger.  This meant that, when launched in 1977, it was natural for forces such as the Sussex Police, who had used Avengers extensively, to employ the Sunbeam in a similar unit beat car role in both rural and urban locations.
Sunbeams could be seen at stations all over Sussex during the seventies and early eighties, and the car modelled was based at Chichester Police Station.

Ford Cortina MK4 - Signal Amber

SKU/Part Number

VA11914 Limited Edition

Extended Description

The more sporting S specification Cortina was popular with customers who wanted the stiffer suspension and improved handling it offered. However, the vast majority of the nearly 3000 S specification cars built were the 4-cylinder 2.0S, as the 'Cologne' V6 engined 2.3-litre version tended to be ordered with an automatic gearbox in the more comfort-orientated Ghia specification. The 2.3S modelled, which has a manual 4-speed gearbox, is therefore one of only 476 produced at Dagenham for the UK market, one of only two remaining and the only currently roadworthy example.

Built in June 1978, and registered on July 3rd, it also features the extremely rare 'Orange Cadiz' upholstery instead of the more common grey. The previous owner, a Cortina enthusiast, enjoyed it for almost two decades but wanted to sell it to someone who would restore it. In August 2017 the current owner, Cambridgeshire-based aircraft engineer Simon Hoar, was able to persuade him that he was the man for the job. Simon had grown up with his dad's Mk4 Ghia, and loved it, but had rolled that car and written it off when aged 17. Thus, he initially bought the 2.3S to restore and give to his dad, Richard, to repay that long-standing debt. However, Richard found out, ended up helping, and the pair now share the matching-numbers car. Their concours standard complete restoration was finished in April 2018 and won Classic Ford Magazine's 'Restoration of the Year'.

Ford Fiesta MK.1 Festival Prairie Yellow

VA12509 Limited Edition

Extended Description

|Description
The 'Fiesta Festival' was a Special Edition model, launched in 1980, which was based on either the 950cc or 1100cc models and featured prominent side-stripes and Festival badging on the tailgate.  Dinkar Jhalera from Buckinghamshire purchased his Fiesta Festival new in October 1980 from Ford main dealers Godfrey Davies of Neasden, London, and has kept the car, which has now covered approximately 75,000 miles. He had it rust-proofed by Ziebart immediately after purchase and, as per the firm's warranty conditions, Zeibart steam cleaned and reapplied their antirust treatment every two years until their 10 year anti-corrosion guarantee expired. As a result the car has remained in very good original condition.

The Fiesta Festival Special Edition was only available in 7 colours and only one option was offered, the wonderfully titled 'Convenience Option Pack' featuring a removable rear parcel shelf, head restraints and Ford pushbutton (p21) MW/LW radio. This was not fitted to the car modelled. The 950cc version modelled cost £3250 of which £217.39 was car tax and £423.91 VAT, while the 13bhp more powerful 1100cc model cost £3424.61. However, twin door-mirrors, electric washers, intermittent windscreen wipe, rim embellishers, bright bolt caps, a rear wash-wipe and the distinctive side and rear decals were standard on all Fiesta Festivals. Buyers could choose either Bitter Chocolate, Tan, or Indian Red 'York' cloth trim on the centre inserts of the car's 5-position rake adjustable front seats.

Ford Escort Mk2 1600 Sport - Signal Orange 1:43 Scale

SKU/Part Number

VA12617 Limited Edition

Extended Description

The Escort Sport was launched on March 4th 1975 along with the rest of the Mk2 range and was available as a 2 or 4-door saloon, both of which could be specified with an automatic gearbox. It sat above the GL but below the Ghia in the pricing hierarchy and featured a twin-choke Weber carburettor, high-lift camshaft, distinctive graphics, spotlights, sports wheels and a close-ratio gearbox. Although it rode 12mm lower than standard, it used a modified version of the standard suspension rather than the more specialised components used on the RS models.Power came from the 1.6-litre Kent Crossflow engine that had previously been seen in many Fords, including the Escort Mk1 Mexico. The current owner of the car modelled, Steven Maclean from Aberdeenshire, bought it in 2016 after it had been totally restored by friend, neighbour, and fellow RS Club member Gary Bell in 2009.During this nut and bolt rebuild Gary modified the car extensively but retained the original 'narrow-arch' factory look, its distinctive 1600 Sport graphics, original paint colour and interior. The modifications included fitting a Vauxhall C20XE engine (a very popular transplant in the Escort world), which is fuelled by throttle bodies, a close-ratio Ford type-9 gearbox, Bilstein suspension, uprated brakes and completely new black trim and carpets. The result is a car which looks standard but packs nearly 200bhp and, because the bodyshell is quite light, has fantastic performance.Engine: 1598cc 4IL OHV Power:83bhp@5,500rpm Torque: 92lb.ft@4800rpm 0-60mph: 11.1 seconds Maximum speed: 101mph Weight: 868kgs

MGB Roadster V8, Don Hayter's car, Brooklands Green

SKU/Part Number

VA13005 Limited Edition

Extended Description

Don Hayter is often described as the father of the MGB and was closely involved with its styling and development after joining the MG design office in February 1956 following a similar role at Aston Martin. He rose to become MG's Chief Engineer, and kept the MGB one step ahead of the ever-changing safety legislation in the seventies, while making a profit for BMC/BL at a time when many other divisions didn't. When MG's Abingdon factory closed in 1980 he sold himself an unused 'development' bodyshell (for £939.55) and 3.5-litre V8 engine, then built himself the only factory-made MGB V8 roadster (factory V8s were all GTs), the last MGB to leave Abingdon. Although the MGB was eighteen years old when MG was unexpectedly closed, Don and his team had been working on an update for the profitable US market using the O-series 2-litre OHC engine (including a very quick O-turbo), larger brakes and other modifications. Twenty or more redundant pilot-build bodyshells were left from this project and it was one of these that Don bought; identifiable because the inner-wing was reshaped for fuel injection. The car also features the first MG-badged rocker covers cast, which had been left unused in the development department. It has appeared in many magazines and TV programmes while still in Don's ownership, including an episode of Clarkson's Car Years, and is now owned by long standing MG enthusiast, Berkshire-based Edward Vandyk.

Vauxhall's UK Special Vehicle Operations department in Worcester created this Mk2 Carlton demonstrator for Police forces to test in 2.6-litre form. However, although it was used on active duty by West Mercia Constabulary and at least three other forces, no replicas were purchased. This was because the Police generally preferred the more powerful and commodious Senator 3.0i, especially in its later 24v form, which although it was based on the same floorpan and mechanical components set as the Carlton was slightly more expensive. The distinctive 'Tiger-Stripe' livery on this car was standard for West Mercia Constabulary in the early 1990s and remained on the car even when it served evaluation duties with other forces.
