H I Josh I'd like to add my bit. I have coupe jut 434e which is currently undergoing restoration. About half way now. Lots of work done underneath and she is now back on her wheels. She starts and runs ok but I think the carb ( a 40 ) is past it... we shall see. She has a factory electric sunroof heated rear screen and a laminated front. Also I own rux 482r which I believe was once yours. Cheers Phil D.

Wow, lots of feedback, thanks.

Can anyone cast any light on this car which is obviously the same one (on the same trailer) but has two different reg numbers :shock:
UWA 753F or UWV 755F ?

Presumably UWA753F as it’s a blue coupe on DVLA but UWV755F doesn’t exist.

Phil C thanks, duly updated
Have you a photo of ORE 240F 'cos I haven't :lol:

Josh, what date would your photo be?

Phil D incredible, you have two cars that are not on Matt's register or mine :shock:
More details and photos please !!!

That's useful Jim, thanks.
Any ideas on the twin plates :mrgreen:

The project thread link seems to suggest there might be two chassis numbers for the same car 8)
But we have two registration numbers for the same chassis ...

Just noticed that one of Phil D's cars is not a Coupé (R reg) :oops:

Rebuilt on a replacement chassis I think, so presumably Matt has been informed of a scrapped car (the donor)?

The plates look like an error - didn’t someone else have a car with different numbers front and back?

Well done Jim, that is useful.
I'll create a new status 'not on DVLA'.
Rather sad to see how many are lost over the years.

Of course, any that have personal plates on, will show as “not on DVLA” under the old reg.
