Mistaken identity
2 November 2012
With reference to your Straight from the Plate in October TCM. The picture of the fantastic commentary box, shows a James and damaged A40 pick-up...

I’d like to point out that it in fact is an Austin A70 BS3 Hereford utility/pick-up, which finished production in 1954.

The give away is the front grille, and the Austin of England air intakes, just in front of the doors on the top bonnet section.

Being a Hereford owner with classic motorcycles, I have noticed your very good mag likes to have correct details, or at least correct them later. Incidentally, the price in 1954 for a A70 pick-up was £1100.
