Supplied new via agents Heron Rossleigh, Edinburgh 27th August 1979 – part of the Heron Group empire where the company owned two of the flagship dealerships in the UK, the latter being Jack Barclay. Our T2 was delivered to its first owner some 280 miles away in Nottinghamshire in November 1979. These vehicles in period were a premium car with a two year waiting list from the manufacturer and cars changed hands for vast sums over list price. Over the course of the next 33 years the vehicle resided in the same county of Nottinghamshire, the first service was carried out by agents Mann Egerton and today the car still wears with pride of place there dealer rear window sticker. The next 16 year the T2 before was solely maintained by Mann Egerton. Marque specialists, Ristes Motor Company then picked up the baton following the closure of Mann Egerton. By 2004 the car was bought by RREC member Michael Murphy who undertook a full recommissioning of the car after a number of years in storage. His efforts were rewarded as the glorious T2 went on to be presented with a rosette for ‘Best in class’. Staying in Mr. Murphy’s ownership for next 8 years before being acquired by DD Classics in 2012. The car changed hands for the last time bringing the total ownership to 5 owners in total.
