The defunct Turner marque is best remembered for its 11-year run of road-based production cars, many of which humbled far more exotic machinery in competition. This lovingly presented MKII model from 1960 features Blue bodywork complemented by Grey interior trim and has only recently emerged from an 18 month nut and bolt restoration by marque guru John Cullis. The reformation is centred around a brand new Robin Knight chassis and includes a fresh GRP bodyshell onto which the original bonnet and boot lid have been attached. Power comes from a 1098cc BMC A Series engine uprated with high compression pistons, Metro cylinder head, Cooper camshaft and electronic ignition. It breathes through a single 1.5in SU and exhausts through an all-stainless system. The unit drives through a fully reconditioned MG Midget gearbox. No stone has been left unturned with this superb example of the marque, which has covered just 450 miles since the restoration was completed.
