I will pass this request on to Cedric Osborne who was a Broadspeed employee 'back in the day' and who has a Broadspeed Anglia in his collection.

Cedric says that he did know him around 50 years ago and Mike seemed quite old then and he has no idea where he might be now. He seemed to think Mike was more from the Anglia era than the Escort era and that he was maybe a contractor rather than employee and was an engine builder.
Is this any connection with EVX256H?

Mike Kenney Broadspeed Engineer

Was talking to Mike a couple of months ago at an oval race - he still retains his interest in all forms of motorsport but his main passion seems to be classic racing motorcycles. He did some great rebuilds on my crossflow some years ago working out of his tiny garden shed as usual - a very clever man.

And if an original Broadspeed Anglia still exists would love to see pictures - I can remember peering through the showroom windows on the Stratford Road back in 1966 trying to get a glimpse of John Fitzpatrick's car and did own one that wasn't too badly messed about with back in the late seventies though sadly long sold.
