A couple of apparently previously unseen photos of Beatles' Radfords have just turned up online... I would say that from Nev's cards that Ringo's is Rouge Irise. The interior is Lennon's - he's at the wheel.

Are there any more Ant? Most of the pics that have turned up in the past have been low res as Nev says, I've found a few others over the years, usually fan photos with the cars in the background but always interesting to see! This one looks a different car again and though no obvious Radford mods are evident in the shot it's similar in colour, has a coachline and appears to have a dash in it?

There's another one taken inside the Lennon car by the backseat passenger (forgot who that was now) with Lennon clearly pictured in the rear view mirror.

It looks like George has asked Ringo for his autograph !
Seriousy though, thanks to Ant for the pics. Note the 4" Cosmics on Ringo's car and Moto Lita wheel on John's. Wipers parking on the left ?

looking at the wipers on the first pictures, one parks on the left the other parks on the right.

Is the inside picture the multi coloured car which was in the back ground. The door frame looks like it could be gold.

I missed that Ant pointed out the inside was Lennon's car.
