After starting life as a Park Ward four door Saloon. the coachwork on the car was nicely converted to a two door Drophead Coupe much later. The design is well balanced. and the work has been done to a good standard. creating a desirable and attractive opening car. which is now in good. useable condition. running and driving well. ideal for fun. but not pristine. Driven the length of France and back again by the last owner. without problems. Now back in the UK after a spell in the Channel Islands. and back on its original UK registration number.

Chassis No. B70DG. Reg No. BRE 334. £75. 00.

Snippets – The Downings.

The first owner of B70DG was George Henry Downing (1866/1937) a member of the Downing Tile & Brick family of Chesterton. G. H. Downing's father James had several tile & brick companies – Rose Vale. Crown. Chesterton to name a few. In 1892 James Downing declared himself bankrupt but four of his sons James. Charles. Frederick & Sydney formed their own company James Downing & Co. this also ran into financial problems in 1911. Their brother George was a successful businessman in his own right with interests in collieries. quarries. transport & garages; he formed a new family firm with the name of G. H. Downing Ltd which was reputed to be the largest firm of tile makers in England. The tiles & bricks had fascinating names – “Double Crown”. “Staffordshire Knot O. P. ”. “Iron” & “Acme”. In the mid 1930s George Downing was appointed JP & in due course became High Sherriff of Staffordshire. Hi son Ken Downing was a successful racing driver whose co-drivers in the Connaught Works Team included Ken McAlpine. Reg Parnell & Mike Hawthorn. His mother was taught to drive by Bill Perkins who was chauffeur & riding mechanic to Sir Henry Seagrave!
