We recently featured the Cotswold Motoring Museum and Toy Collection, located in the lovely town of Bourton-on-the-Water. You can see that post at this link.
The museum's main draw is a lovely assortment of cars ranging from the early 20th century until the 1970s. There also are scooters, caravans and an extensive collection of toys.
I really enjoyed visiting this car collection and wanted to share more of it with you than space permitted in my prior post. It's always a bit of a challenge trying to decide how to organize these photos, so I decided I'd just post them in the order I encountered them at the Museum.
Not sure about the vintage of this one, but likely from the 1970s. One of the cars that greets visitors as they enter the museum.
1932 MG J2
The J2 is a two-seater (J1 was a four-seater). You could buy a new J2 back then for under £200.
1952 Jaguar MKV
A gem of the post-war period.
1938 BMW 327
One of the most strikingly beautiful car in the collection, this sporty convertible is powered by a 55 bhp 2 liter 6 cylinder engine.
1946 Standard 8
1956 Jaguar XK140
A popular export to the American market, capable of speeds of almost 140 mph.
1956 Sunbeam Alpine
A rare sporting car.
1936 Morgan Super Sports
Classic 3-wheeled car, designed by a man interested in racing.
1938 Fiat 500 Topolino
A small 2-seater car with a tiny 13 bhp 569 cc engine. Capable of 53 mph while delivering 48 mpg. Much like the Volkswagen bug, it was intended to be a car for the masses.
1964 Ford Zephyr 6 MK3
Land Rover Carawagon
Finally a few car-related artifacts from the museum's collection.
