  1. What a fantastic car. I’ve seen her around Crystal Palace and often wondered where she came from. She’s truly a work of art. Look forward to seeing more pictures.

Miss. Hepburnella's name is a tribute to powerful and amazing women: Specifically the lovely Audrey and Katherine of course, but also of wonderful, inspirational women generally.

She is a leather and feather wrapped copy of a Ford Branton; the box van variant of the famous 1920's Model T. Like many females she prefers to be somewhat vague about her exact age. While her number plate makes her a 'Child of the 60's' the full story is slightly more complex and a matter between her, her current keeper and the DVLA in Swansea: One of those strictly 'need to know' things!

Hand bound in black faux croc. and a golden-copper calfskin, she has both solid, reclaimed teak and brass featuring among the materials used for her trimmings and fittings. She is, and most likely always will be, a work in progress.

Miss. Hepburnella resides and operates out of Rook's Books workshops in Crystal Palace. She never fails to turn heads as she flounces down the street, and is relatively well known around South London.
