I'm stumped Stu, not a clue!

Meanwhile, back in 1977 when this episode of 'Hazell' was a filmed, we have a pair of dolly birds beating a hasty retreat from an 'executive client's' mews flat in their tastefully modified late Mk1 Austin Cooper, minus bonnet badge but with added Shadowlite tinted glass all round (inc. double glazed W&P style rear quarterlights), Cosmic wheel arch extensions, twin tanks, GKN alloys, a Rolls Royce Regal Red paint job and Euro spec aftermarket nudge bars...

It's the late John Bonham, drummer of Led Zeppelin from the film The Song remains The Same.

'Hazell And The Maltese Vulture' Stu, first shown on 20/3/78 ;)

Aside from Hazell's two green Stags there are some other tasty motors in the series, including a couple of Jensen Interceptors.
