Vinot et Deguingand

This car was labelled as a Vinot A'Dejanon in the programme of the Lancashire Automobile Club's Silver Jubilee Manchester to Blackpool Veteran and Vintage Car Run in May 1987.
It's actually a 1919 Vinot et Deguingand 15/20, and the note in the programme says this about the car:

1919 Vinot A'Dejanon
(Anthony Hutt, Lytham St Annes)
This rare French model began life as an
ambulance, but when bought, despite its
outwardly good condition, had obviously been
used as a chicken shack. This is its first
Manchester to Blackpool after a total rebuild. It
is right hand drive in the manner of many
French cars of that period - France did not 
adopt left hand drive until a few years later.

The photograph was taken in the Exchange Station car park at Manchester prior to the start of the run, and its registration number is CK 1937.
