One of the cars is an ex­tremely rare Speedy model (right), which de­spite its project car con­di­tion is ex­pected to raise £6000 to £8000 at Herefordshire Ve­hi­cle Auc­tion’s sale at Ledbury Rugby Club, Herefordshire on 7 July. A 1927 Austin Seven Chummy, which has a £3000-£3500 es­ti­mate, is also on of­fer.
