50 years later, the road is wider and the bridge has gone. Only recognisable bit are the buildings on the right.

Tell me if anyone is interested in just why Liverpool and Bootle - and their Cooper S's in particular - were the prime movers for the trials regarding different + and a bit later -ve earth alternators.

A bit nerdy I know, but police mini history

I recently have come across a NOS speedo which Smiths list as being specifically for the Police Cooper (SN4421/30 with 1440 tmp).
It's a MK2/3 type speedo, yet it only has the MPH scale on the face. Can anybody confirm that this would also be the case in their actual cars?
