About Turner

The first Turner models were produced in 1954 by a company established by Jack Turner near Wolverhampton, England.

Initially known as the "803" and using an 803cc Austin A30 engine, transmission and suspension, the car featured a simple ladder frame chassis and open fibreglass 2-seater sports bodywork. In 1956, the uprated 948cc unit from the Austin A35 was adopted and the model renamed "950", but was otherwise unchanged.

In 1959 this model was replaced by a new version which although similar to the outgoing model, featured substantial revisions both to the body and chassis. The 948cc Austin engined version was named the Turner Sports Mk I, and versions known as Turner-Climaxes were also available with the powerful Coventry Climax 1,097cc FWA and 1,216 FWE units. Approaching 150 Turners had been produced by the time this model was replaced.

The following year, a Sports Mk II model appeared with much improved interior trim and further minor styling revisions. As well as the Austin and Coventry Climax engines, in 1961 and 1962 other options such as the Ford 105E 997cc and 109E 1,340cc units were introduced and finally, in 1963, the new Ford Cortina 1,500cc engine was also made available. About 300 Turner Mk II models were made.

Reduce your risk, reduce your cost

Every application for car insurance is different. Each insurer’s price depend on two things, first the underwriters assessment of your particular risk focus and then the pricing model which dictates what type of customers the insurer wants to attract.

Therefore by reducing an insurer’s perception of your risk you can reduce the price you’ll pay. There are of course many factors you either can’t change or can’t change easily … age, gender, where you live and driving history. Yet there are things you can have control over:

Park and drive carefully
