Stratford-upon-Avon College Apprentice Warren Trueman has won the prestigious Bursary prize from the Worshipful Company of Coach Makers of London for making a fuel tank for a post-war Rolls Royce Silver Ghost using original methods and drawings.
Warren is currently in his third year of a four year Motor Vehicle Maintenance, Engineering and Machinery Apprenticeship, said, “It’s a great award and I was ecstatic when I found out I’d won.” The tank took five months from conception to completion and was engineered using original methods such as soldering and cold-riveting.
Warren, who is 21 and from Moreton-in-Marsh, is working for vintage motorcar restoration company A.J.Glew as part of his apprenticeship. An A.J.Glew spokesperson said, “Months of hard work have paid off with first place in this event. Warren has put in an outstanding effort.”
Warren has one year remaining on his current course but he is looking to continue his education by studying machining and engineering once his apprenticeship is complete.
