Cow­ley gems on dis­play

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

The last Mon­tego made is on show at an Ox­ford shop­ping cen­tre. Tem­plars Square is host­ing the Cow­ley Clas­sic Car Dis­play, fea­tur­ing a range of lo­cally built clas­sics, and cel­e­brat­ing the city’s au­to­mo­tive in­dus­try her­itage.

Nine cars will be in the lime­light there up to Sun­day (12 Au­gust), among them a 1948 Mor­ris Mi­nor, the third old­est known, and a 1963 Mor­ris Mini which has stayed in Ox­ford­shire since be­ing built. The cen­tre­piece is the last car off the line at Cow­ley – a 1994 Mon­tego, due to re­turn to the Bri­tish Mo­tor Mu­seum to­mor­row (10 Au­gust).

The dis­play, an an­nual event since 2014, has been or­gan­ised by lo­cal res­i­dent and Cow­ley car en­thu­si­ast Tanya Field.
