The Herbert Gallery & Museum (Jordan Well, Coventry CV1 5QP) will hold the Percy Replica car until the archives has the space to allow the display of more items.




 This is a tiny building so Percy's replica car, will initially be on display in the Herbert Museum and Gallery with engines and exhibits at the basin  allowing  the rest to be collated, digitised and sorted ie baby steps due to financial constraints. It is intended to be open by Autumn for at least two days a week to start with  and will be announced properly with a press release etc.
