1962. Interior view of Moortown Motors Ltd., situated on Regent Street by the corner with Skinner Lane. Moortown Motors were concessionaires for Volkswagen and were part of the Arnold G. Wilson group of companies at the time. The company painted parts and body shells and claimed to have one of the only two plants in the UK that could reproduce a factory finish. This view shows the paint shop with the spray booths and drying areas on the right. Photograph courtesy of Don Smith who was manager of the paint shop at the time.
