|Richard bought the Turner in 1997 from a friend in the village next to Watlington south of Kings Lynn in Norfolk who restores classic cars, mainly Aston Martins and Jags etc. His friend had bought the Turner at the RTS auction in Norwich and was a near 'basket case'. The friend did not really have the time to work on it and sold it to Richard, for his wife. Richard's son is restoring the car.
The car does not have a chassis number plate, but has a BMC engine without a number plate, and came with Registration Number plates CMG 196 A. All the information available from the Auction house was that the seller was a Mr Pye of Spixworth near Norwich, who has moved away.
In 1980 it was owned by a Miss Dawn Holmes who lived in Norwich. She married a Mr. B. Lincoln of Buxton, Norfolk. Attempts to locate them have been unsuccessful.
