ZB Factory styling model

In December 2017, quite unexpectedly, a 1/4 scale ZB ‘styling’ model appeared in Bonhams auction catalogue (although wrongly described there as a ZA model from 1953). Particular thanks are due to Peter Cadman who saw the catalogue and alerted the Register. Paul Batho then investigated to establish its provenance, and MGCC management quickly agreed that the Club should try to acquire the model for the club archives. Finally board member Dave Saunders was able to successfully bid for it at Bonhams on 6 December

It’s thought the factory would have produced the model prior to minor changes for the ZB, and since it’s unlikely any others survive from that time, it’s an exciting find. Hopefully it will be possible to exhibit the model (which is more than 3 feet long) at Kimber House during 2018. Look out for further announcements, or if you can contribute any information about the history of the model please contact us
