Is there anyone else on the site that remembers a story that made the national press in the 50's about the "scandal" of the cheap cars being flogged by the dockers in Liverpool? A cargo of Triumph Mayflowers destined to be shipped to the States were stored in the (I think) Huskisson dock when the deal fell through. They were the Razor Edged ,short wheel base models,we kids thought they looked ace,like miniature limousines, and they were going for less than a pound at the dock gate. Now allowing for media hype etc.,does anyone know if there was any truth in the newspaper articles. As they were all left hand drive cars they would have stuck out like sore thumbs.
I remember the photos of them ,nearly all black in colour but covered in the usual grime that fell from the skies in those days.Ring a bell with anyone?
