Latest Request for information

Looking for information on GPW Jeep registration number KWF 58.

Andrew Norman


Dear Mail Call

I'm looking ( have been for 30years ) for any information or possible fate on my late father's GPW. 

An original crate Jeep, first registered in Cottingham East Yorkshire registration number KWF 58.

Please see the attached pictures.


Last known whereabouts at Eldon Hill Quarry Derbyshire part of the Thos W Ward dynasty, Sheffield.


My dad headed and managed departments within this group and Sold the Jeep after being pestered by the quarry manager.


A new company car already on the drive, made the hard decision a tad easier.


It's had a double page article in a military vehicle publication but Sadly no feedback Perhaps your members could help, always worth a punt.


I attend the annual Chatsworth country show most years and naturally took great delight in savouring a modest selection of military


vehicles... Especially the Jeeps. I can recall spotting one away from the line up, I'm quite sure the registration number was very close


to KWF  !!


Thanks in advance Andrew.

Looking for an early Daimler Scout car.

Peter Cook

Chairman BSA Front wheel drive club.


Dear Mail Call


The BSA Front Wheel Drive Club, of which I am the Chairman, represents the owners of BSA Front and Rear Wheel Drive Cars produced by the BSA Company in Birmingham between 1929 and 1939. The BSA FWD vehicles represented the first Front Wheel Drive vehicles produced in volume in the UK. Production of the three and four wheelers totalled around 10,000 and today some five or six hundred survive world-wide.


This year is the ninetieth anniversary of the introduction of the BSA Front Wheel Drive car in 1929. The BSA FWD Club are marking the event with a rally at the British Motor Museum at Gaydon on the 6th and 7th of July 2019.  We are inviting the owners of BSA motor bikes, Daimler and Lanchester cars. I would also like to find an early Daimler Scout car, which as you may know was designed by the BSA design team before it was moved to Daimlers to allow BSA to concentrate on guns and motor cycles.  The suspension units are very similar to those used on the FWD cars.  If you could point me at any owners of a Scout car I would be very grateful.


I have enclosed a data sheet BSA FWD Cars which you might find helpful together with a piece on the rally.
