Coventry's first registered car, DU1, stands in a storeroom at the Daimler Company's Radford factory as immaculate and road-worthy as the day it was biought nearly 50 years ago. The 23 h.p. sedan has attention lavised on it daily by a group of Daimler apprentices whose skill and enthusiasm have saved quite a number of historic Coventry cars from the scrap-heap, and converted them into exhibits which would grace any showroom. The vehicles are far from museum pieces however, for they are as mechanically sound as any of their modern counterparts, writes a Coventry Evening Telegraph" reporter.In our photo is Richard Crofts in the driving seat, Graham Turner(left) and Eric Lindsey checking the engine.16th December 1960 "
