Re: White 1000 Traveller - FYY 809J

Many thanks for that. The DVLA database suggests that it has not been exported as there is no export marker listed but you never know how these things work. Thanks also for the add on your forums too. Every little helps :-)

Best regards. Bruce

Re: White 1000 Traveller - FYY 809J

Well, it's been a while since I was on here - have been a bit distracted with a John O'Groats to Lands End Charity Marathon for the last eighteen months :-). Now that's over, and the car has now gone to its new owners, I thought I'd share this one again in case there are any new forum members who ma...

Re: Please What is this Model & Year

In the first photograph, the car appears to be an early 50's Series MM convertible. The bumper/buffer is from a 1000 though because the over riders are in the wrong place.

Re: National Rally photos

You won't often see 2 AJOs together :) Pure luck as I came out of the campsite I found myself following 122 AJO, which has just being let in at rally control, up the rally field and was able to park alongside with 831 AJO. 122 AJO is the prototype 1000 convertible - quite a unique car as there are ...

I realise that this business probably no longer exists, but does anyone have any information about it when it was operating and what became of ...
