Homepage. This page: An amusing motoring-related calendar features a 14hp Vauxhall from the late 1940s.

Re-painting a classic Vauxhall 14hp saloon.

Oddball items of motoring ephemera can be an interesting thing to collect. This old motor-related calendar falls into that bracket for me. It features a young lad in overalls, a brush, and some tins of paint. He's "helping out" by re-painting his father's post-war Vauxhall 14 in a fetching shade of green, although the brush-painted finish leaves a lot to be desired. The lad is saying "Won't dad be pleased!" - I'm sure he'll be very emotional when he sees his prized Vauxhall in its new colour scheme...
The actual calendar section, which originally featured beneath a flap, is long gone, so I can only guess at the age of this item. The car reminds me very much of a 14hp Vauxhall, and the lack of full running boards suggests a late-1940's, rather than pre-war, example in all probability. Who published this calendar I sadly don't know.
