I have recently discovered that a firm called Birmingham Motor Sales of Foleshill Rd Coventry was supplying Messerschmitt bubblecars in 1958. Does anyone have any information about this motor dealership?.Also in connection with Messerschmitts I am trying to trace a man by the name of Roger Garnett who was heavily involved in a Messerschmitt group in Coventry during the 1960s.He used to work at the Daimler and I believe he has since moved out to Spain.

This is the 1958 car which led to my enquiry. It is difficult to judge from photos but appears to be original and all there. On top of the purchase price, you would have to budget for a comprehensive restoration, but then it would be a nice car to own.

Hector - Have a visit to the reference library, and see if there are any trade books / phone directory for the late '50's, to see if its listed.
