Must be some ITN footage somewhere. This shot is dated 3rd July 1967.

Thanks gents - lovely shot that Stu thanks for sharing it! There must be a news footage archive online somewhere, it was an ITV news crew who doorstepped the Fabs in December '66 when Lennon rolled up in his black Radford 'LGF 696D'...

As it motors in through the gate it looks as though it definitely has the same rear light treatment as Paul's car.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who have not got it.

Lennon's does have those horrific Aston rear lights. Clearly seen in shot here.
