RAF Waltham Peerless


RAF White Waltham. Is there any substance to this tale of cars being assembled there in the 60s??

When Warwick production stopped in Horton. Ron Ham who was an investor and transport company owner. Took left over stock and tried to carry on in a rented garage premises in White Waltham. So maybe some bits were stored at the airfield. This operation only lasts a few months. No money.

Great thanks. I can just imagine Ron working all hours in an old lock up trying to piece together another Warwick with a few peerlessly bits and bobs and the odd engine sourced from a written off TR. Last man standing before the conglomerates killed off all those small independents and specials for good.

Chris lawrance . J A Pearce and Mullard would be the last. Cars register as late as 1965

Ah, the good old days before SVA/IVA/whatever it is now!

Turn up in something with an engine & 4 wheels and you got a registration plate.

How simple was life then??
