a late 65 in wartime – is it still around?

This car was registered in Kent, probably in March 1934 so a late-ish aluminium 65.

We are assuming that the photo was taken during the war years 1939-45. Note the characteristic white paint markings on the sills and front wings – very smartly done.

The driver, Phyllis, married Jane Turner’s uncle in 1936. We don’t know whether the car was registered in the name of Longman or Jeremy, as Phyllis Longman or her family may have owned the car before she married Derek Jeremy (Jane’s mother’s brother).

I wonder if AKT 106 still survives? Keep your eyes open…

One thought on “a late 65 in wartime – is it still around?

  1. Hi Jon

    Not sure we can say it’s a late 65, mine at car 24 is also a March 34 car.
    The offside headlamp has a nice wartime light restrictor fitted, to go with the white paint.
    Nice photo.
