A 1947 car which was reportedly once owned by Harry Mortimer will be making a rare appearance at The Yorkshire Post Motor Show & Classic Car Rally in June.
The Riley RMA (like the one above) will be among hundreds of restored classic cars at the event at Harewood House â€“ although according to the news story in the Yorkshire Post, its owner, Andrew Greenhough may need to do a little bit more research on the vehicles famous driver.
He is quoted as saying that was registered on Valentine's Day 1947, "â€¦by its first owner, the wartime jazz man and radio band leader, Harry Mortimer."
However it seems he was much more enthused by the car itself, saying: "It's not bad to drive. Because they were built just after the war, engineering skills had improved.
At the time they were quite modern mechanically but the bodywork was traditional with a wooden ash frame."
Harry Mortimer was born in Hebden Bridge in 1902 and died in 1992.
