Right, I've put in the extra lines and it's clear enough in chassis number order - but a bit strange in reg number order unless the notes column can be included. Have to think about it. Also I wonder if the status date should refer to the last trace of the car rather than its listing or otherwise by...

Good point Roger, although in some cases the chronology is not easy to establish. The history of each car as known is in my comments column, but this spills over into the next page in pdf form.

Many additions and a few numbers identified, well done Roy. We now have over 700 cars, which is spectacular considering I have eliminated quite a lot of duplicates. Various notes ... KAY 120E chassis 423 or 432 ? 644 LCS 476F (from 1980 register) - 664 NHU 414F (no note of origin) 497 was KOV 3F in ...

Thanks Roy, that's very useful. A Geoff says, any confusion over 985 is the fault of Bev Fawkes, who had the number BGF on at least two Coupés. Here is the list much updated since the last version (but not including the above!) I have identified many of the unknown cars and eliminated some duplicate...

Oh bum, I'm getting more and more confused.
Ok, the red car was sold in '10 which I hadn't noted and the front panel is off a Rover.
But according to Glass's Guide production started at chassis 0010 so all cars before that were some sort of prototype ... :?
