In September 1935, Lord Austin presented a Nippy to the daughter of the Gunnings dealer principal. We can surmise that the car was a steel Nippy in a light colour, and that the registration district would have been Somerset or Bath, from other Gunnings Registrations. This car would have been something circa YD 8000 or GL1800 from other contemporary registrations of that period.
Douglas Alderson found a article advising that Gunnings sold the first Ford in Wells and a photo showing the car but it had a Bath registration number! The Nippy should be Somerset, but this does show it is not always that simple.
The article below shows the link to Bill Wotton of the Bristol A7 club.
I wonder if we can find whether the car survived? YD registrations ended at the end of 1934 at 8505. Year end for 1933 was 6045. So October(ish) would have been about 8000 – so could conceivably have been 8150 or 8015… keep you eyes peeled!
