Club member and current Fairthorpe owner Barry Stock recently sent me the following pictures of his first Fairthorpe Electron Minor registration number 673 WAR. The car is a Mk1 fitted with an unusual bonnet, it appears to be an Electron one though the opening hatch with it`s power bulge is not present, Barry maintains that it looked as if it had been moulded that way.
Barry purchased it from a man in Kings Langley who had bought it new as a kit, it had done about 30000 miles by this time and he used it as his everyday car for a while before being sold through an ad in Exchange & Mart and delivered to an M1 service station, possibly Newport Pagnell, Barry never saw the car again.
This Fairthorpe is not currently on the DVLA database and the club have no records on the car. If you have any information on the current whereabouts or fate of 673 WAR please get in contact so we can fill in some more history on the car.
