8.HAB 681 37S 12324  Estate not on dvla noted as broken in 1972  in the 1973 newsletter . The letter was from J.A.Beggs of Garden Hey Road, Meols, Cheshire. This gentleman knew of the car from 1951 to 1962 when it vanished until 1965 when he was offered it for spares. As totally rotten it was eventually scrapped. The exterior wooden framed body was steel panels and wooden frame with four doors to the side and two to the rear to a Massey design first registered in Worcester. The screen was opening, well upholstered with a plain straight dash ( non RM) but used RM front wings with everything else especially made
