[20 NOV 98] MUSEUM OF BRITISH ROAD TRANSPORT PRESS RELEASE
Early Christmas Present For Motor Museum

Coventry’s Museum of British Road Transport has had an early Christmas present in the shape of a 1973 Range Rover in superb condition. The vehicle has been very generously donated to the Museum by Coventry man Doug Blencowe in memory of his wife Patricia. Doug said

"We were the first and only owners of this vehicle and covered over 250,000 miles in many happy and cherished years of motoring. It has been a very special vehicle to us and it was always our wish that it should take its place alongside other vehicles that sya so much about the history of Coventry. I am delighted that it is going to one of the best museums in the world."

Barry Littlewood, Managing Director is delighted with this latest donation. He commented

"The Range Rover has been such an influence in motoring, particularly in respect of four wheel drive, and the Museum is proud to be able to display a vehicle in such superb condition and one that has had such strong Coventry connections all of its life. We are indebted to Doug Blencowe for his outstanding generosity."

The vehicle will be officially handed over to Andrew Corner a Board Member of the Museum on Friday 27 November at 9.30 am at the main entrance to the Museum, where picture and interview opportunities will be available.
