BSA Bantams

Three BSA Bantams, once an everyday sight as they were used by the Post Office to deliver telegrams.

 

A variety of British motorbikes

There was a wide variety of other British motorbikes on display including other BSAs and Triumphs.

 

Wolsley 1100 and Ford Zodiac

Now some cars, a 1966 Wolsley 1100 (or is it a 1300?) alongside a 1965 Ford Zodiac.

 

Morris Minor Traveller, Morris Oxford and MGB

A Morris Minor Traveller with its wooden trim around the "estate" part of the body and a 1967 Morris Oxford.

 

Mk2 Jaguar

A Mk 2 Jaguar, always one of my favourite cars.

 

Jaguar E Type and Triumph 2.5

Another Jaguar, a real classic, an E Type, beside it is a Triumph 2.5.  Why were all the best cars simply dropped rather than being updated in the BL era?

 

Austin Gypsy

An Austin Gypsy, their answer to the Land Rover, this example is in Police trim.

 

 

Ford Mustang

One of the few foreign exhibits was this American classic, a Ford Mustang.

 

 

Postman Pat's van - an Austin

Postman Pat's van - an Austin (Seven?) - one for the younger visitor to enjoy.

 

 

Morris Minor Traveller

Another Morris Minor Traveller, this is quite a late one being a "G" reg., 1968/69.

 

Singer Vogue

A 1966 Singer Vogue, at least Rootes Group "badge engineering" meant something in that the Singer Vogue was a better trimmed version of the Hillman Super Minx.

 

Ford Consul Capri

A rare Ford!  A Ford Consul Capri, even rarer than the saloon version the Consul Classic.

 

James motor tricycle van

James motor tricycle van

Two views of a rather unusual vehicle, a James motor tricycle van.  The front end is very much motor bike, though it does have a steering wheel rather than handlebars!  Not sure of the motor, I seem to recall James motor bikes used Villiers 2 strokes but this would need a bit more power than that I suspect.

 

 

Line up of Land Rovers

Forward Control Land Rover

A line up of Land Rovers including a less common forward control version.

 

Steam showman's engine

An Aveling & Porter showman's engine belonging to Ron Darch, a Yeovil coal merchant and oil distributor.

 

 

Miniature traction engine

Miniature traction engine

There were two miniature traction engines present, both with youthful drivers.

 

 

Traction engine driving a saw bench

Traction engine driving a saw bench

A traction engine powering a a saw bench, they were used to power equipment such as this as much as they were used for haulage.

 

Showman's engine and steam roller

A showman's engine and a steam roller.

 

Grey Ferguson tractors

There were a few tractors present including this pair of "little grey Fergies" - Ferguson TE20's to give them their proper name.

 

Unipower tractor

I'm not sure if this Unipower should be called a tractor or a truck, either way it was engaged in moving logs around the steam driven saw bench seen above.

 

That's it for this Rally, there are photos of the area around the rally site on West Bay, the organising club's own site is at WEST DORSET VINTAGE TRACTOR
