Irish Vintage Scene Issue 188 February 2022

We kick off a new year with our February 2022 issue, on the cover of which is an Irish-assembled DKW Junior that has recently been restored by one of its previous owners from back in the late sixties, none other than John Mitchell of Kilgarvan Motor Museum in Co. Kerry – this 1963 Junior is one of DKW’s famous two-stroke, front-wheel-drive models, and returned to John in need of a serious amount of work after many decades of deterioration.

Coincidentally this month, our second featured car is another unusual front-wheel-drive from Germany, this time a 1935 Adler Trumpf 1.7-litre that was tracked down in Holland by a life-long fan of the marque, and brought to his home in Co. Wexford for what turned out to be an epic, 6.5-year restoration project.

Our tractor feature this month outlines the heart-warming story of a sixties Ford 3000 tractor that’s been a treasured part of a Co. Tyrone family since the early 1970s, and which has been recently returned to its former splendour.

Our two-wheeled feature tells the story of the restoration of a 1960 Lambretta Li 150 to nothing short of concours condition, while our commercial feature is without doubt the most unusual van we’ve ever seen, a three-wheeled V-twin Raleigh Light Delivery Van from the mid-1930s that was something of a landmark in its locality for decades. 

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