Welcome to South Hants Vehicle Preservation Society website.


We are a Society which is based in the Solent area and currently have a joint membership of around 600, with vehicles ranging from Victorian bicycles and steam traction engines through to cars motorcycles and assorted commercial vehicles of various ages. In fact, as long as it is not customised, we welcome anything transport related provided it is over 25 years old. You do not need to own a vehicle to be a member.

SHVPS Tangmere8 2017We meet up on the second Wednesday evening each month and we usually have a run to a local place of interest on the last Sunday of each month.

Our social calendar includes an annual BBQ, skittles and quiz evenings and we even have a special Ladies’ Day with a free cream tea included for the ladies. In the winter, we hold a Dinner Dance and a Christmas Lunch. The majority of our events are subsidised for members.

Our main fund raising event is the highly successful and popular annual Classic Vehicle Show and Autojumble, held at Queen Elizabeth Country Park at Horndean, on the first Sunday in June.

New members are always welcome – please browse through our other pages for more information about our friendly club.

Ford Cortina

Happy 53rd Birthday 'Ribena' Cortina a four door 1600GT. First registered on 18th October 1967 in Bournemouth. From our research, the 1600GT model was introduced at the 1967 London Motor show, which also started on the 18th October, meaning our car is possibly the oldest existing 1600GT (unless of course, someone knows otherwise). She is named 'Ribena' because she is blackcurrant (Aubergine) in colour. Originally Ermine White, the first owner had her resprayed sometime between 1968 and 1974, possibly after an accident damaged the rear passenger door and sill. She has since been owned by the same family since 1974. Currently off the road being restored to original Series 1 1600GT condition (apart from the colour) she will be back on the road sometime during 2021, we look forward to seeing you all. ...
