The owners of a vintage car which was registered in Buteshire more than half a century ago are appealing to readers of The Buteman for information about the vehicle’s history.
Trish and Alan Leaver, who live near Honiton in Devon, are the proud owners of a 1955 Ford Popular with the registration number DSJ216 - the suffix SJ indicating that the vehicle was originally registered in the county of Buteshire.
The Leavers are only the fifth owners in the car’s history, and they’re keen to hear from anyone on Bute who knows the back story of a vehicle which cost around £400 when new and was marketed at the time by Ford as ‘the cheapest new car you can buy’.
If you can shed any light on her story, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01700 502503. We - and the Leavers - look forward to hearing from you!
