NEC Classic Motor Show 2016: British Motor Museum to reveal 'hero' cars

Published 07 November 2016

An array of 'hero' cars will be displayed on the British Motor Museum's stand at the NEC Classic Motor Show later this month. The museum, which unveiled its new name at the show last year, will be bringing along three cars to tie in with this year's show theme of 'heroes and heroines' to event, which takes place on 11-13 November.

Visitors will be able to see the first pre-production Land Rover, affectionately known as HUE thanks to its registration plate. Also on the stand will be the first four-wheeled Wolseley, an 1899 3 ½ hp voiturette, and the 1976 Monte Carlo Rally winning Mini Cooper S.

In 2015, the museum unveiled its new name and re-furbishment plans at the show. This year, staff will be on hand to talk about the museum’s new look and Collections Centre, both of which opened to the public in February 2016.

Staff from the archive department will also be taking enquiries for Heritage Certificates, which are produced for a wide range of British classic cars.
