Classic Car Clearance

A LOCAL man is holding a garage clearance of some distinction — with five of his classic cars up for grabs.

The motors are being sold by Stranraer man Ian McNally, including a fully-restored 1960 Mark II Jaguar and 1930 Morris Cowley.

Ian bought his first classic car at the age of 18 — a 1953 Hillman Minx for £22 10 s. — and over the next 40 years restored dozen of others.

Now, due to ill-health, he is winding down and has decided to sell his remaining models, which also include a 1947 Austin 8, a 1937 Austin Ruby, both in need of restoration, and a 1935 Ford Model Y. He said:

“I have been into cars ever since I left school, and I still go to local functions and different charity shows.

“There has been a lot of interest in the cars already from fellow collectors, mostly from outwith the area, which shows how quickly word spreads.

“I’m sorry to see them go, but they need a lot of maintenance and it’s time to wind down.”

Ian could not cut himself off from his cars completely, though, and has decided to invest in “something small and easily transported”.

Anyone interested in purchasing any of the above cars should call Ian on 07974 961720.
