It may have been a police car - lots of Police Rover 3500 SD1's were specially built from 2300 cars with basic trim and no self levelling rear suspension. JOF is a Brum number plate.

Watch 'Robbery' and you can see the 100 mph speedo.

I sold it in 1999/2000 to a well known restorer of Minis. It has yet to resurface however.

It would be interesting to see what Heritage have down in the ledger for that one.

Last seen on a high street in Potters Bar or some such, and advertised in Motoring News @ 1974 for not a lot.
