History The journey of Black Betty began in 1965 where she was brought out of the showroom and bought by Mr Leslie Peerless. This has been her oldest home and she managed to stay with his family for over 33 years as a happy holiday camper. At the end of the 90s, she found a new home in Exmouth. They decided she looked like a 'Dilly' and was named then and there. Unfortunately, age was getting the better of her, she was given a brand-new look which saw to her wining countless prizes at classic car shows. Finally, in 2010 Dilly reached her current owners, who decided she did not look like a 'Dilly' but in fact a 'Betty'. It was then she was named Black Betty.
