DC’s first owner was Robert Vaughan from Peterchurch, Hereford who owned her for 31 years. Robert sold DC in 1984 to Jeffery Jay who also lived in Hereford – he had her for 19 years. Things then changed quickly - she was next owned by Rowan Morgan from Wormbridge, Hereford for 12 months before being sold to Bailey Classic Cars Ltd in 2006. They employed Wrightsons Car and Body Works to restore the chassis and body work - I have receipts for £3336. She was then sold to Kevin Honey from Redditch in 2007 who kept her for 6 years before the Land Rover Centre in Huddersfield took her on to further restore her.
We bought her in 2013 from the Land Rover Centre. Since then she has been used at shows and carefully maintained. She has had new springs fitted and last winter the engine was overhauled including: rebored cylinders, reground crank, resurfaced head, leadfree inserts fitted and valve seats reground (£530) also £500 of new engine parts were fitted. Selling reluctantly due to house move and lack of garage at new house – she is too good to leave outside.
