Mabel, our 1977 Bailey Maru, has enjoyed countless holidays during her 43-year lifespan and she’s about to receive some tender loving care. During the restoration process we’ll be repainting her sleek bodywork and we’re looking for a design that reflects the year she emerged from the Bailey of Bristol factory.
The seventies is an iconic period in the world of design with many artists, designers and fashion houses borrowing from this decade on a regular basis. Boots became taller, flares meant trousers became wider and the Union Flag was waved from every street corner during the Silver Jubilee. If a hat wasn’t red, white & blue AND emblazoned with a London bus, it remained unsold.
