from a four door saloon, initially into a two door coupe, and then later into a
rather handsome convertible, this car has benefited from various work in the
last year, and now makes a useable, interesting and unique open four seater.
Would perhaps benefit from some cosmetic improvement, but basically a good car,
running and driving well, MoT tested until May 2013.

to W Turner, a partner in the sheet metal firm of Turner & Savage Ltd.
Turner & Savage’s customers included the coachwork company of Park
Ward & Co Ltd - in 1926 Turner & Savage issued a Winding Up order
against Park Ward in respect of unpaid invoices which they duly paid! During the
1970’s B190YD was with Paul Plasson a resident of St Mary’s Mansion in
Little Venice, London. These mansion
blocks first appears in the late 1800s and were initially unpopular as they were
associated with the “free artisan style of living” in Paris!”
This period of redevelopment coincided with the revival of the Queen Anne
style with distinctive features such as turrets, wrought-iron details & the
red & cream brickwork. It was
during the 1980s that B190YD was transformed by Mackenzie Coachworks into a 2
door coupe – the 3rd special bodied car that they had done for
their client who was a designer based in New York.
