It was that ford got annoyed that Lotus was the lead brand in the naming.

Anglia Car Auctions first sale of 2019 has a couple of interesting items.

Here's a cheap entry into historic racing (HRDC A-Series anyone?)

https://angliacarauctions.co.uk/classic ... 6-mg-1100/

Dressed up Mini Van for show goers

https://angliacarauctions.co.uk/classic ... i-95l-van/

Ex Keith Moon 1939 Chrysler with very low estimate

https://angliacarauctions.co.uk/classic ... limousine/

They also have a couple of over-estimated ex George Harrison cars from the 1980s, and an Austin 1300 Estate which I think has been over the block before.

Full lot list here... https://angliacarauctions.co.uk/classic ... 2018-12-30

I think this is a very nice Mark 1 Cooper S. Why is it listed as Austin? Date of first registration May 2018 raises another question?

That was probably the date it was reinstated onto the DVLA system and for some reason was not altered to the correct, original registration date.

When HOY was reinstated, they initially put the first date of registration as 2017. I had to get Paul Sulma to contact DVLA to point out their mistake and a correct V5C was then issued with the correct, original registration date of 4 November 1966 :D
