This car is still around and being looked after carefully by the current owner.
I met the Duke a couple of years ago but I didn’t get a chance to mention the car. I’m sure he has fond memories of it. There are other newsreel shots of him delivering Prince Charles to Gordonstoun school in the car. According to various sources, Charles does not have similar fond memories of his time there!

Fellows, can I refer you to the Club magazine #213, an article written
by Tony Tostock, AML service engineer 1950 to 1963, who accompanied the Prince and the 3 litre to Australia when he opened the Olympic Games in Melbourne in 1956.
I was too young to recall, however my dad is the bloke posing a question, whilst other photos show his 2.6 saloon, the saloon he bought for his partner, and my mother’s 2.6 drophead.
(It is snowing on my farm in northern NSW as I write.)
