A century old Sunbeam car which belonged to a Wellington woman has been brought home to celebrate its 100th birthday.
Miss Gill purchased the car from George Oates Garage, in Wellington, for £684.1.3 in 1923, and she remains the only registered keeper on the logbook, which survives a century after she signed it.
Now local motoring enthusiast Ralph Sanders has purchased the car and put it on show for residents to enjoy.
The car, whose claim to fame is an appearance in the Morecambe and Wise film The Riviera Touch, was proudly displayed outside of Ms Gill's former Beaconsfield home on Wednesday, September 6.
Mr Sanders was glad to see the exhibition drawing attention and eyeballs from passersby. He said: "The car is totally original, it has only had a touch up with the brush and polish, I bought it in this condition.
"Even the seats and mirrors came with it from new, it's just been cleaned and serviced throughout its life. The engine has been overhauled by a previous owner but that's about it.
"I am doing it for the lady who owned it who had it for 70 odd years and to bring it back home, it is part of Wellington. It is great to share it with the town."
Now resident at Ms Gill's old home is Trevor Pritchard. Mr Pritchard and his family turned out for the birthday celebrations, with his grandson Zach enjoying a spot in the driver's seat. He said:
"It's fantastic. I was amazed. It is wonderful to see it here. I know quite a bit about Ms Gill's family because I have lived in Wellington for almost 60 years. It is terrific what Ralph has done, bringing it back."
Mr Pritchard presented a chocolate birthday cake for the car, and his grandson Zach produced a terrific portrait of the vehicle which was hung in its former driveway.
