It's not often you see these nowadays.

Someone must preserve this for posterity alone.
A few inside photos would have been nice to see but I cannot remember seeing the estate version.

I wonder what vehicle that number was first issued to.

The F-registration with preceeding numbers was an Essex issue from Feb 1957 to Apr 1958, so that is almost certainly the car's original number.

That is a lovely car and such a striking reg number. Lets hope the car and number stay together.

Essex was the last mainland county to continue allocating non suffix registration numbers right up to the middle of 1965 when the then government decreed that suffix numbers became compulsory.

The Scilly Isles continued with *CY non suffix numbers until CY was allocated to Swansea.
