|SJW 240 was a 1956 Turner with a difference! It was fitted with a Standard 10 Engine which was tuned by Alexander Conversions. It is not known for sure if Jack Turner fitted the engine as an experiment, but research evidence shows the car was in this configuration in September 1958.

Peter Cocker kindly supplied the rest of the images from old personal slides and these show Peter with the car and interestingly working on the Standard 10 Engine. Peter perchased the car around 1962 from David Ham and was a member of the Bedford Motor Club.
The car is not known to survive and the chassis number is unknown. *Update Feb 2010* Anthony Parfitt contacted the register with further information and the last 3 photos shown here. Anthony owned the car around 1968 in Birmingham. He aquired the car as a non runner and it was missing the doors and engine was removed. He sold the car on to a new owner in the High Wycombe area soon after these pictures were taken. The Turner regster would welcome any further information on the car.
