There's been comment on this on the latest 'have you seen this on e-bay' thread. It looks as though it's got an ex Police number plate - and there endeth the lesson!

This scenario is not unusual with Minis and ' historically famous ' number plates....

It looks as though (first picture) IF you reached the dizzy heights of CID, you were rewarded with a flashy new HB Viva 8-)

I took this photo off the tv screen (freeze frame paused) on BBC4 "The Secret Life of Rubbish" (2012) of a Police Panda Mini Mk3 850 in Bermuda village, Nuneaton in 1972.

A Police Minivan recently restored by my brother.....the South Wales Police history only came to light when applying to DVLA for details of the previous owners.....and then the various holes found in the roof and dash areas matched up.
PolicecarUK only know of one other surviving Police Minivan both have now been featured in Miniworld.

I think that HH is Cumberland and not Liverpool

OEW suggests that the CID got the Viva's. We were told initially that CID stood for Cxxxx In Distress

'HH' was a Carlisle plate. In the local rag a few months ago there was a picture of one the Carlisle Plods Mini's (they do a bit with historical pics in every week), unfortunately the pic was to small to make out much in the way of details or reg number.
