Description

Jack Turner opened his sports car business in 1951 and quickly started production on small British sports cars such as this 1961 Mk II. The company produced sports cars similar to MGs (the first car was a re-worked MG) and the like. Six different models were available until the company closed (voluntarily) in 1966. They could be purchased as full, complete running cars – or in kit form.

This is a Mk II, of which about 150 were produced (a fire burned the factory records) from 1960 until 1963. Front suspension was based on a Triumph Herald and engines options came from Ford, Austin and Coventry Climax. This particular car has a 1098 cc A-Series 4-cilinder engine from BMC – the stalwart of tiny British four-cylinders.

Turners are very rare cars - only 80 examples of this MkII version are said to still exist - and a popular choice for historic racers. These cars are very light with a fibreglass body combined with a rigid tubular chassis as often used in racing cars. This example was restored over a five-year period by a passionate enthusiast of British sports cars. It's beautifully finished in many details, and looks fantastic in proper British Racing Green. This Turner is a spectacular little car that offers a very sporty driving experience, and an ideal sports car for trackdays or hillclimbs.

This attractive lightweight sportscar is now available for viewing in our showroom, and ready for an adventurous new owner.
