Heritage certificate query

Post by Aginley »

Got a new heritage certificate through today for another project I’ve got and on section 9, “destination” it says works car.
Is this normal? It’s a 66 build
Oh and it’s tweed grey and old English white which is one of my favorite colors after surf blue and fiesta yellow :D

Possibly a press car. Some of the early Cooper press cars had HOP reg. nos.
It's like what my painter friend Donald said to me

Has your car been used in motorsport or was it a press car?

It's a 998 Cooper so I doubt it was in motorsport?
I think probably a press car

It just means it was part of BMC's company car fleet.
