Bottom Line

The April 2016 issue of Irish Vintage Scene (Issue 119) is on sale now, and contains your last chance to win our massive giveaway for one lucky subscriber worth €2,000 to mark our tenth year in existence.

This month’s cover car might look relatively commonplace at first look, but dig deeper and you find that it’s actually just one of four survivors of its kind; the diesel-powered Ford Granada 2.1DL was very economical, but less refined than its petrol counterparts and so was less popular too, and this original Longford-registered example is believed to be the only Irish one left.

The April 2016 issue of Irish Vintage Scene (Issue 119) is on sale now, and contains your last chance to win our massive giveaway for one lucky subscriber worth €2,000 to mark our tenth year in existence.

This month’s cover car might look relatively commonplace at first look, but dig deeper and you find that it’s actually just one of four survivors of its kind; the diesel-powered Ford Granada 2.1DL was very economical, but less refined than its petrol counterparts and so was less popular too, and this original Longford-registered example is believed to be the only Irish one left.

By contrast, our second feature car is a two-stroke, three-cylinder DKW 3=6 from the fifties, which was assembled in Ireland and has a unique Irish motorsport history behind it; it’s now a treasured part of the collection on display at Kilgarvan Motor Museum.

Our main tractor feature this month recounts the tale of a much-loved Ferguson 20 that’s been part of local life in its home village since the fifties, having served as its first owner’s everyday transport, while our second looks at a three-tractor collection from Co. Kerry that includes machines from Ford, Ferguson and International.

Our feature motorcycle this month is sure to bring back memories for many readers, as the Honda CD175 was a very popular commuter bike in Ireland in particular, and our commercial feature on a stunning restored Bedford O-Type lorry rounds off this issue.

An extensive list of show reports includes the IVETA Indoor Vintage Show, Gerard Murphy Memorial Run and the NEC Classic Motorshow, and all of the usual favourites are in there too, so don’t miss out – get your April 2016 issue of Irish Vintage Scene today!

The Features

Precious Metal

This beautiful Ford Granada has a precious nature that goes beyond its golden hue. It’s an original 2.1 DL, a factory diesel model that is now rare in the extreme. This Irish example has been lovingly restored by a Cork family of enthusiasts to stunning condition throughout.

Faithful Ferguson

This year sees the 70th anniversary of the commencement of production of the Ferguson TE20 in 1946, and sixty years since the end of production in 1956, so it’s the perfect time to look at a very original Irish example owned by a vintage enthusiast from Co. Cork.

The ‘Works’ Wonder

I’m sure that almost all classic car enthusiasts dream of a barn fi nd, or buying the same make and model of a car from their youth. Some even dream of reviving an old competition car to relive its glory days. John and Trevor Mitchell of the Kilgarvan Motor Museum in Co. Kerry have managed to fulfil all three dreams with their DKW 3=6.

Into The Blue

A loyal and dependable commuter machine that’s come into its own as a classic these days thanks to its extensive chrome and mechanical simplicity, Honda’s CD175 is as respected as it ever was. Maurice Cleary has done the model proud in this award winning restoration.

Bedford Beauty

For some of us, the restoration hobby can be incorporated into the day job. Brian and Gary Grant are a father-and-son team from Co. Antrim who have managed to do just that, mixing in the restoration of some classic and vintage vehicles with their modern truck repair business, and this stunning Bedford O-Series is the result of one such project.
