Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

Sir Arnold Clark, the founder of Bri­tain’s largest in­de­pen­dent group of car deal­er­ships has died aged 89. Bri­tain’s first bil­lion­aire car dealer was born in Glas­gow, where he set up his first show­room in 1954 with a Mor­ris Ten-Four he bought for £70. A state­ment said he passed away peace­fully ‘sur­rounded by his fam­ily.’ He amassed a col­lec­tion of clas­sics, in­clud­ing Ford Model Ts, a Citroën Clover­leaf, and a Rolls-Royce Park Ward Sin­gle Tourer. He was knighted by the Queen in 2004 for ser­vices to the mo­tor trade, as well as for his char­ity work in Scot­land.
