TEAL OF THE WEEK No 38 (and a half)
 
 
 
TVM485S
 
 
 
The unusual yellow Teal and Teal trailer belong to Dicky Dawes of Frome, Somerset, one of the key figures in Teal history, who made most of the aluminium boat tails for Bob Jones’ (and our) Teals.  The trailer, also formed from a Teal tail is, as far as we know, unique.  And pretty useful on Teal trips for clothes, spares, food, wine and other necessities.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Dicky Dawes was an artist in aluminium, who could form almost any shape required with accuracy and artistry. For instance, although no longer working now,  he created six years ago the attractive and effective cowl intake on the starboard side of Andy Dutton’s bonnet for his twin SU carbs.  Have a look next time you’re alongside La Tecla….
 
Does anyone know where this unique yellow  Teal (and trailer) are now?
