  1. To the Davenport Family.

    We were so sorry to hear the very sad news about David.

    When I bought my “barn find” MkIV 2.5 about 4 years ago I searched the internet for any MkIV specialists in the UK and came across Davenport cars.

    From the onset David proved to be extremely helpful and knowledgeable and he was always very generous with valuable advice and guidance. He came across as someone I could definitely rely on.

    He offered to take us for a drive in his beautiful MkIV 3.5 and a year or so later I and my wife managed to visit the farm and he not only showed us around his restoration workshop but also took us for a ride in his MkIV.

    Just before the Covid outbreak he had offered to sell me a MkIV 2.5 radiator grille from his museum and also 4 spare wheels / tyres but just as we were about to arrange it, the virus broke out and it never happened.

    I was about to call David to re-arrange another visit in March when I heard this very sad news.

    Please accept our sincere commiserations.
