Unwin Reginald Arthur (KAY)

Year working: Circa 1910 - 2003

Was a coachwork draughtsman and artist who ended up at Mulliners inthe 1950's. A small archive of his drawings came on the market in the early 2000's. These consisted of coachwork styling exercises and earlier dimensioned bodywork drawings, principally for Rolls-Royce. It would appear that he was an active member of IBCAM (Institute of British Carriage and Automobile Manufacturers) entering several of theircompetitions pre-war. Some of these competition entries have survived, one of which was entered under the name - Kay.
