We Want Information – Juno Triumph

A couple of years ago I took today’s featured photographs of Alistair Hunt’s Juno at Crystal Palace.

The event Souvenir Programme tells us the car was built in 1955 and there are one or two references on the internet to the car being powered by either a JAP, unlikely or Triumph, more likely, motor.

Searching the word “Juno” at The Nostalgia Forum led me to a reference regarding the 1920’s play by Sean O’Casey “Juno and the Paycock” and “Juno Beach” which was liberated by Canadian and British Forces in the Normandy Landings on D-Day 1944.

It would appear the late author David Hodges may have owned the Juno, but this has yet to be confirmed.

So if per chance you know anything about the Juno, who built it, owned it and or drove it please do not hesitate to chime in below.

Thanks for joining me on this “We Want Information” edition of “Gettin’ a li’l psycho on tyres”, I hope you will join me again tomorrow when I’ll be looking at one of Jim Clarks Lotus 38’s. Don’t forget to come back now !
