Anyone know what that force is, with the identifier OB? Birmingham? Incidentally, a picture clear enough to show an ancient AC alternator, the oil cooler but NO bonnet landing platform brace. 4.5" wheels(?) looking at the offset.

Brum.

It might even be from a block of Longbridge numbers.

As for XLV124J, it's dead and buried but XLV123J is a Cooper S last taxed in '89.

I'm sure the V5 will be reissued soon. :lol:

I've been surfing and researching the net today and have come up with this. My 1965 Austin Mini Cooper S was delivered to them in May 1965 and converted by Harold Radford as Mini de Ville GT (hatchback) and first registered in January 1966. A tale of 2 registration numbers - 1966, 1974 & back to 1966 in January 2015. Still trying to find the owners between January 1966 and December 1971 - Guilford to Colchester - 4 owners?

Not sure - the bonnet badge is a Morris but the grille is an Austin Cooper...!
