Iian let me know about "Gumdrop" a kids book series about a 1926 Clifton Tourer 12/4

Val Biro an illustrator wrote a series of popular childrens books about the vintage Austin "Gumdrop" he owned.

In the first four books Gumdrop suffers various indignities before being rescued and restored (at least twice),
These books contain a lot of details including cutaway drawings of the car. They are really quite charming and provide an interesting glimpse of the trendy early sixties vintage car scene

Thanks Iian!
