Mk2 Consul 8834 LJ
First up is a picture showing a Mk2 Consul registration 8834 LJ driving away from us. Note the stick-on demister affixed to the rear window. Parked up, and with a learner's L plate in the back window, is a Mk1 Ford Cortina, with a Mk1 Transit van further up (registration HVY 576C). If this Transit is C reg., then this must have been one of the very first Transits as they were introduced in 1965, the year for a C suffix registration. Heading our way is a substantial Scammell tipper lorry, owned by Hoveringham. Parked in the distance is a VW Beetle, and to the right a BMC FG breadvan, owned by Wonderloaf. Just in view at the bottom of the photograph is a 105E Anglia, perhaps a basic model.
Mk2 Consul SKU 832
In this photo, another Mk2 Consul features, this time driving towards the photographer. To the left is a D registration Ford Cortina Mk1, and in front a BMC 1800 registration DHD 798E. Further up is a 1968 Wolseley 16/60, and an 1100/1300 registration KJX 152G, also from 1968. This BMC car is in hot pursuit of a lorry operated by Thomas Sugden & Son Ltd, Flour Millers of Brighouse. The Wonderloaf van is still parked to the right. Also note the Austin dealership sign on the righthandside. Later photos of Central Garage feature in this period photographs section, see link at the top of this page.
