UUR130J is a Rover.

I sent this to Jim P a couple of days ago and he pointed out that the wheeltrims are the later design (could have been retro-fitted of course).

It could easily be 100J, the image is not too clear on the screen.

No reply from Crouch Recovery. They obviously consider themselves too grand now to deal with mere members of the public. :-(

This was in the early 1970s, not last week. Even so, a simple "Sorry we have no info" wouldn't cost them anything but a few moments. The piece was about how Crouch Recovery started and I believe that the chap in the picture was on one of his first recoveries after starting the company.
