Issue 191 IVS & Issue 45 RC
IRISH VINTAGE SCENE ISSUE 191
The cover of our May 2022 issue showcases a now-rare, top-of-the-line Hillman Hunter GLS, a luxurious and potent saloon in its day thanks to its twin-carbed 1,725cc Holbay-tuned engine. This one’s recently been restored by a life-long fan of the model, as his father bought an identical car brand new in 1973. Our second car feature brings us another sporty pairing, this time two very original Series 2 Alfa Romeo Spiders owned by a former rally driver.
Our tractor feature this month looks at a Nuffield DM4 from 1957 that has spent almost all of its life on one farm, while our two-wheeled feature tells the story behind a very racy 1939 Triumph with a competition background and a multitude of performance modifications. Rounding off the features in this issue, our commercial feature goes to a stunning trio of classic Scania V8 trucks – a 141, 142 and 143 – that are shown with pride by a Dublin-based haulage company.
