Owner: Vernon Mortimer - based in Somerset
Vernom Mortimer is the founder of the Speedsters & Spyders Club and the editor of the Club Magazine
He puchased his car from Chesil at the Stoneleigh show in 1991
The company had just changed its name from 'Street Beetle' as new owner Peter Bailey developed the car from Chris Boyle's original.
Chesil's show car and demonstrator for the '91 season was finished in a deep burgundy pearl paint.
Vernon decided he must have this car to add to his collection and a deal was done that Chesil could borrow back the car for shows and other promotional activities until a new demonstrator became available.
The registration no of this car was later changed to ESU 969 - more recent photos on the ESU 969 page - photo below taken at Stoneleigh 2003
at Club APM in March 2003
