Hello! Wave I'm new to this site and it's fascinating to read all the posts, my family is from Coventry so it's great to see all the stories. My grandfather used to work at Carbodies on the Holyhead Road, I'm not sure of the exact dates but think it was the 1940s & 1950s... does anyone have any information on this? Or do you know anyone who worked there? Or did you work there? I know it's a bit of a long shot but it would be so great to find someone who may have known my grandfather, as he unfortunately died before I was born.

Hello Winnie, There is a history of the Carbodies Company, called 'Carbodies The Complete Story' published in 1996, the author was Bill Munro. It will tell all about the company but may not mention your grandfather. I am interested in the company during the 1950s as I am writing a book on the Daimler Roadster and New Drophead Coupe built by Carbodies 1953-7. It would be very useful to contact people working there at that time. Best Wishes, Dennis
