Irish Vintage Scene Issue 187 January 2022
On the cover of our January 2022 edition is an extremely rare Irish survivor that’s enjoyed the limelight in its time – this 1952 Jowett Javelin is thought to be the only remaining example of 26 Irish-assembled cars, and became famous in more recent years when it regularly appeared on the TV series ‘Ballykissangel’.
In this issue we follow it on its first return to Avoca in Co. Wicklow, where filming took place. Our second featured car is a Morgan 4/4 that’s recently been beautifully revamped after many years in storage, but sadly not before its owner passed away unexpectedly.
Our tractor feature this month outlines the ambitious restoration of an Ursus C-385 from very poor condition, essentially being saved from the scrapheap!
Our featured motorcycle is a 1972 Honda C50 that’s been rebuilt to stunning order, while our commercial feature tells the story of one of the most historic vehicles in the country – the 1921 Leyland FE fire tender of Dublin Fire Brigade, which celebrates its centenary this year.
And, as an extra bonus this month, we bring you a history on the Corrie Foundry in Cavan, which was a famous piece of Ireland’s engineering heritage for generations.
To provide the vintage and classic vehicle enthusiast in Ireland with one place to source all they need for their hobby.Tom Heavey, Managing Editor, Irish Vintage Scene
