Nice period image.
Sadly there is no record of TBJ 90F on the DVLA's database, so unless it's 'resting' somewhere............
Would have been nice to get them together in the same spot for a comparison picture of the site today.
Of course if you are putting her back into police livery then another surviving panda would do for the shot (perhaps with a made up '90F' plate for the picture?).....
Best wishes,
Mike.

Hi,
The NMP plate is in the engine bay, on the floor near the front on the passenger side, not on the engine, as per image below.
Best wishes,
Mike.

I know but I had no proof or could not find any 100% that It had a white roof and the guys painting It needed what colour so I had to make a choice.
