Issue 216 (June 2024)


SKU: N/A Category:


Heading up the June 2024 edition of Irish Vintage Scene is an eye-catching Vauxhall Viva HC in bright red, which holds a special place in its owner’s heart as it was his first car back in the nineties, when it was already a classic. Even though it had been sold off decades ago, man and machine were reunited again in the last few years, and it’s been treated to a full restoration back to its former glory. Our second feature car is also a restoration tale, but a bit of an epic by all accounts, as this extremely rare 1928 Armstrong Siddeley 12hp coupe has sat around waiting for attention since the early seventies. An original Irish car from new, and sold at a dearer in Co. Limerick, it’s been worth the long wait, as over the last decade it’s been rebuilt to an incredible standard from derelict condition.

This month’s featured tractor is an unusual machine that you won’t come across often. This BMB President garden tractor was picked up as a long-abandoned project missing its engine and many other hard-to-find parts, leading its owner to come up with inventive solutions to bring it back to life. Our featured motorcycle is a beautiful BSA Bantam post office bike from the 1950s, and our commercial feature tells the unique story of an unrestored 1986 Toyota LiteAce that was rescued from a shed in Dublin, where it had sat with low mileage for twenty years after its first owner passed away shortly after its purchase.

Lots of the usual favourites are in there too, so don’t miss out!
