Stanley Mann's advertisement
in Classis and Sports Car (believed late 1980s)
 
 
 

"I bought this car privately in Coventry, shortly after my demob from national service, in about 1957 as a non runner for £100. After some investigation it fired up having sorted the timing. It was enjoyed and seen by many in the Warwickshire area trouble free for some two years until the skew gears in the turret 'crossed swords' in quite an expensive mess. As this was my only form of transport I sold it - again as a non runner - for £100.

Stanley Mann Racing Ad above: The car having had a face-lift; no running boards & replaced with cycle type wings, a modified hood arrangement & a louvre bonnet. The asking price (from memory) - £67,500 this would be around 1986."
