Issue 208 (October 2023)
The cover feature of the October 2023 issue of Irish Vintage Scene tells the story of a true survivor, a stately Rover P5B that’s been in the same Dublin family since 1973, at which point it was only six months old. In that time it has been stolen twice and had the odd prang, but was always cared for by its owner and remains a very handsome and usable machine today. Our second featured car is another once-common family motor that’s now highly collectable, a Morris Minor 1000 that recently returned to its long-time former owner after 22 years apart.
This month’s featured tractor is a Ford 2600 tractor that’s been restored to absolutely stunning condition by a very enthusiastic young owner, after it was gifted to him by a relative after its long working life. Our commercial vehicle feature looks at a recently restored example of one of the most famous pickup trucks of all time, the Toyota Hilux, while rounding off our features for this month is the story of a unique Dunstall-style Norton 650 motorcycle that is half race bike, half work of art. Lots of the usual favourites are in there too, so don’t miss out – get your October 2023 issue of Irish Vintage Scene!
