Ipswich Transport Museum is to host a gathering of lovingly-restored cars and lorries to mark its restoration of a 52-year-old truck at the weekend.

Its 1962 Bristol HA lorry has been brought back to life. Around 20 cars and light commercials, including the famous Morris Minor and Morris 1000 cars will be on display at the museum.

The visitors are all specially invited guests, and are lovingly restored, privately-owned examples which are not normally seen on display at the museum.

Event organiser Eric Mouser, who tracked down and restored the 1930 Morris Minor he once owned as a teenager, said: “There is a thriving enthusiast community, and we’ve assembled a selection of classics that have been lovingly restored.”

The event will run on Sunday from 11am- 4pm.

Entrance is £7 for adults.
