Hi Jim, no but Tony Seddon is there with his traction engine so maybe if the car is there tomorrow he could get the vin?
I don't think he comes on the web much these days though.

Brian, was it on show? I think I saw it at the Kelsall show earlier this year but it was leaving the show ground and I did not see it on display a lady was driving it.

I spoke to the owner, he bought it from GW's a couple of years ago. He's put vents in the bonnet.
I think it may be this one

I looked at it in GW's when for sale and from memory it looks to be the same car, moulded in body and bumper extensions
The owner mentioned that the wheels had been shot blasted and painted, just like the car in the photo.
He lives in North Wales so I may see him at Bodrhyddan Hall show this coming Sunday (22nd), if I do I will try to get a bit more info.
K171KNW is no longer showing on DVLA database, would change to cherished number do this?

KNW is #2085 - would explain why it's not showing on DVLA.

I didn't remind Tony on Sunday so I don't think he papped it.
