I was a resident in Maghull, Kirbys were not far from where I lived. I bought my first Hillman Imp from them, a 1964 Mk1.

I used that for about two years then late in 1967 I placed an order for a new Sunbeam Stiletto. I took delivery in January 1968, one of the best cars I ever owned.

I did 19,000 miles in it over ten months, sold it then moved to Cape Town , South Africa, I am still here.

I was working at the Liverpool branch at this time. I believe there were the Kensington and Duke street locations.
Would be interesting to hear from any of the old employees. I remember quite a few.
I am in Canada.
