Last taxed in 1963, this 500 Aero from 1937 has recently come to light. Formerly owned by a Club member, now sadly deceased, the Aero is in extremely original condition. The new owner intends to restore it to running order but preserve the patina gained over its 82 year life. The parts missing in the photo were also supplied, so the next task is to reassemble it and see if it runs after 56 years!
The Cornwall Section will be holding its annual barbecue at Dave Rodger’s house on Saturday, 1st June at 7pm. For more details, please contact Dave on 01637 861933.
