The ex­ten­sive col­lec­tion in­cludes orig­i­nal en­gi­neer­ing draw­ings, pho­to­graphs from ve­hi­cle test­ing ses­sions and work­shop man­u­als. The to­tal tar­get for the fund is £175,000. The Trust will be at­tend­ing sev­eral clas­sic car events around Bri­tain this year with the aim of sup­ple­ment­ing its ar­chive cen­tre fund-rais­ing ef­forts.
