Speedwell , 1963 ? .........sign

Postby xx68 » Thu Jul 03, 2008 4:40 pm

Did a bit of scratching around today and came up with this , its a ripper , was buried under a house covered in old timber , the newspapers around it ( which were just scraps ) were dated 1963 ..... so its officially old ! it needed a bit of a clean also

After a bit of cleaning looks like this !
Looks like the brand was 'removed' any ideas

Will look great in the shed !
