- Rare and desirable woody estate vehicle by A P Morris of Stoke Row, Coventry
- Long term previous owner and a unique opportunity
- Only 20 of the 400 woodies made are now known to the Lea Francis Owners' Club
Estate versions of Lea-Francis's 14hp model were manufactured by a number of coachbuilders between 1946 and 1953, and it was in 1951 that this handsome example vacated the company's Much Park Street production facility bound for A P Morris of Stoke Road Coventry where its attractive `woody' bodywork was constructed. Only 20 of the 400 woodies made are now known to the Lea Francis Owners' Club, making `JWF 967' a rare car by any standards. Its varnished wood panelling is complemented by Silver coachwork, a Black Everflex roof and Brown leather interior trim. Very evidently the subject of a thorough restoration at some stage, it is presently considered by the vendor to have `very good' four-cylinder engine and four-speed transmission, bodywork, paintwork and upholstery. The current keeper acquired the `Leaf' in 2018 for the purpose of weekend shoots, prior to which there had only been two previous owners. A unique opportunity to acquire a practical classic of real character.
