Bedford Van & Vauxhall Chevette reunited

4 years ago we finished the restoration on the ex works Jimmy McRae Vauxhall Chevette HSR which Jimmy drove in 1980. Soon after that, we purchased an ex DTV Bedford CF van to go with it. It needed a lot of love and attention and now it is all pretty much finished. This is quite a unique pairing and we would like to thank Steve Rimmer for the opportunity to make this happen. It has been a lot of work but the photos now show that it is all worthwhile. This will form part of our display for Rally Day at Castle Combe on the 21st September 2019 and Jimmy will be there with us at the event. Almost a year ago now, my Dad, Bill Gwynne, passed away and in his honour we wrapped the car in the livery he used when he drove the car during 1981 on the Motoring News Rally Championship events, for a 12 month period. It has been a humble week seeing the wrap come off the car but many thanks to Steve for allowing me to have it in his livery for the last 12 months, it has brought back some great memories for many people.
