1969 Austin 1100 6cwt Van
With the club forming in 1990 it wasn’t long before there was so much kit needed to attend shows that it had out grown club members Boot capacity.
In 1995 the club committee made the decision to purchase a club van, ‘Buttercup’ was chosen over other makes due to availability of parts. Starting off green she became a rolling advert for the club gaining the club some sponsorship money through advertising. She came with the Morris bonnet lift handle and badge.
In the winter of 2007 she needed restoration with the van back needing too much work she had a fibreglass replacement fitted and the opportunity was taken to change the colour. A member’s wife saw the freshly restored van called it Buttercup and the name stuck.
She has been a work horse for the club ever since.
