Irish Vintage Scene Issue 176 February 2021

Taking the cover spot of the February 2021 issue of Irish Vintage Scene are a beautiful pair of Mini Clubmans that have been restored in West Cork – a saloon and an estate – while a stunning Riley One-Point-Five with a local Co. Tyrone history also features.

Our monthly tractor feature is the unique story of a wartime Fordson Model N that amazingly has been in the same Antrim family since 1957, and was restored from derelict condition having stood unused for decades, while our motorcycle slot goes to a desirable 1961 Norton Dominator 88SS that’s been built into a beautiful and period-correct cafe-racer by a Dublin specialist.

Our commercial feature looks at a mint, low-mileage 1980s Toyota Land Cruiser J70 imported from the UK, while we also tell the story of the unique Beradino GT, a one-off sports car built by a German engineer as a lifelong project. 

All of the usual favourites are in there too, so don’t miss out – get your February 2021 issue of Irish Vintage Scene at any good newsagent, or order it here with FREE POSTAGE!

To provide the vintage and classic vehicle enthusiast in Ireland with one place to source all they need for their hobby.

<strong>What’s in this Issue</strong>
Club Classics

Revamped for the seventies but still unmistakeably a Mini, the straight-nosed Clubman received a mixed reception in its time – after all, the much-loved Mini was an impossible act to follow. But by now the Clubman is cherished by fans as much as its forebear, including these two West Cork beauties.

The Land Girl

Although always in the shadow of the iconic Model T car, Henry Ford’s Model F tractor of 1917 was just as revolutionary in terms of agriculture, and its lightly updated successor, the Model N, carried the model into the 1930s and played a huge part in WW2 food production both during and after the war. Geoffrey Mark’s example has been part of his family since the 1950s.

Life of Riley

‘You have the life of Riley,’ is usually said in good spirits to make out someone is having a cushy time in their lives. In this case we refer to what many old vehicles should really have at the end of their lives, and the effort of one painstaking restorer has ensured the beginning of a new chapter for this example.

Dominant Gene

From its early days as one of the all-time great British motorcycle manufacturers to its turbulent times in more recent decades, Norton has retained its cachet with riders and is still held in very high regard by many ardent fans. Dublin’s Robbie McGrath is certainly one, and he pulled out all the stops on his stunning 1961 Dominator 88SS cafe racer.

Land Grab

Buying a vehicle in another country sight-unseen takes a leap of faith, but Galway’s Tony Ryan’s trust in a UK seller was rewarded with the most original Toyota Land Cruiser J70 you’re ever likely to see.
