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
"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.
