"I seem to recall they were ~£300 for a Model 'B', which was a lot,"

Especially when, if you'd already reached 17 years old, you could get a cheap second hand car for that price, or if you went for more of an old banger, include the insurance in that £300 too. I got my first car when I was 21 and IICR, 3rd party fire and theft policy was about £100.
