Issue 175 (Jan 2021)
Taking the cover spot of the January 2021 issue of Irish Vintage Scene (our Christmas edition) is one of the rarest cars we’ve ever had the privilege of featuring – this racy Panhard CD GT is one of only 179 built in the mid-sixties, is certainly the only one in Ireland, and survives in extremely original condition. Our second car feature this month relates the tale of the owner of a stunning Wolseley 16/60 and his family history with the model, which stretches back to his father’s company cars in the 1960s.
Our tractor feature this month looks at a Massey Ferguson 35 with Ford-derived Duncan cab, a tractor that’s become a popular fixture in its hometown, while our commercial vehicle feature showcases a beautifully-restored Leyland Beaver with matching four-wheeled trailer, which was bought to commemorate the early days of its owners’ haulage family. Our featured motorcycle is an unusual 1957 DKW Hobby scooter ‘barn find’, while our On the Spanners project roundups drop in on our managing editor’s Ford Anglia estate and a contributor’s rare Irish-assembled VW Anniversary Beetle. All of the usual favourites are in there too, including our annual Christmas crossword and bumper giveaway to mark this special time of year, so don’t miss out – pre-order your January 2021 issue of Irish Vintage Scene right here and receive it before it’s in the shops, with FREE POSTAGE!
