The present owner of the Beckenham Special, HBP 270 (below), which Keith Salmon used in trials, hillclimbs etc, when it was new, is seeking the pre-war history of the car, which he is restoring. It was well-known in its day and if anyone can help, we can forward letters. The car’s last appearance was possibly at the MG Register’s 1964 Rally. It is not to be confused with the other Beckenham Special owned by Peter Glover. The address of Salmon’s widow and daughter are also sought, to return borrowed photographs.
