1933 BSA 10 H.P Saloon. The BSA Ten is a small car manufactured for BSA Cars by BSA subsidiary The Daimler Company Limited. Announced in October 1932 first deliveries were delayed until February 1933. A cheaper and less well-finished version of the Lanchester Ten with a smaller side-valve engine of BSA design. An offering to try to meet the market of the Great Depression. The motoring correspondent of The Times reported reaching 57 mph (92 km/h) under favourable conditions, the makers' estimate of fuel consumption was 35 mpg at 30 mph. The chassis with standard finish would set you back £175.

1950–1953 Standard Vanguard Phase I Estate. The Standard Vanguard is a car which was produced by the Standard Motor Company in Coventry, England from 1947 to 1963. It was Standard's first post-Second World War car and intended for export around the world. It was also the first model to carry the new Standard badge, which was a heavily stylised representation of the wings of a griffin. An estate car joined the range in 1950 initially for Belgium only. The body was updated in 1952 (Phase 1A) with a lowered bonnet line, a wider rear window and a new grille featuring a wide horizontal chrome bar in place of the narrow, more closely packed slats of the original grille that you see here with this car.

1952–54 Morris Minor Series II. Cheese grater grill type. In 1952, the Minor line was updated with an Austin-designed 803 cc (49.0 cu in) overhead valve A-series engine, replacing the original side-valve unit. The engine had been designed for the Minor's main competition, the Austin A30, but became available as Austin and Morris were merged into the British Motor Corporation. The new engine felt stronger, though all measurements were smaller than the old. The 52 second drive to 60 mph (97 km/h) was still calm, with 63 mph (101 km/h) as the top speed. Fuel consumption also rose to 36 miles per imperial gallon (7.8 L/100 km) A horizontal slat grille was fitted from October 1954, as well as a new dashboard with a central speedometer. 269,838 examples of the Series II had been built when production ended in 1956.

1949–1953 Ford Prefect E493A. Post war, the Prefect design changed little until replaced in 1952. The headlamps moved into the wings and trafficators were fitted (internally lit semaphores springing out from the door pillars to signal left and right turns), though due to space restrictions these were left out on the Australian-built Ute. Only four-door saloons were available on the home market, the two-door sector being left to the Anglia but some were made for export. 192,229 were made

1937–1940, 1946–1947 Vauxhall 10-4 H Type.

1947–1954 Austin Sheerline 125. The Austin Sheerline is a large luxury car that was produced by Austin in the United Kingdom from 1947 to 1954. The Sheerline was designed by Austin during the Second World War, but production did not begin until 1947 because of the commitment to war production. It was a luxurious car in the style of the contemporary Rolls-Royce or Bentley but at a much lower price, around two-thirds that of the equivalent Rolls-Royce but still the price of five or six small Austins. There were about 8,000 built but it is now becoming quite rare. Predecessor Austin 28 Ranelagh 4016cc (announced August 1938) Successor Austin A135 Princess Vanden Plas Princess
