The interior in the black (P Boyd ?) car is not the original - the red leather seats were mine - came from a 1071 Radford that was returned to standard spec (it still exists and is Almond green Old English white). So the colour of the interior is not a reliable guide to the original colour of the exterior!

I'd heard that the front seats were out of Murph's car but didn't know the rest wasn't? So the red trim colour combo may be / is non original. Boyd might be able to cast some light but several have tried and failed..

Looks nice enough but if that's been anywhere near a Beatle I'll eat my Rickenbacker twelve string. Any more pics / info Pete..?


No Nidge. There's a couple of people who've told me that "Lennon's car" is being restored by their mate, but then no more info is ever forthcoming. Nothing Ive ever heard over the last thirty years or so about "Lennon's Radford" fills me with any hope that a real car survives.

Inclined to agree Pete, if it was still out there I'm sure we'd have seen something of it by now. The other's could easily have gone the same way but I'm glad they're still around.

DYY 251B's original interior was "Ambla" vinyl covered - a sort of orange red colour if I remember rightly - so not entirely impossible that it could have been combined with turquoise blue metallic I guess.

This is the 1071 Radford the interior came from. Shame it was de-Radfordised. Looked like a cracking car.
