Re: introduction and info

Hi - '36 Lt12/4 Ascot VG choice. Unlike the '61 Westminster its limits are reached at low speeds (especially uphill). In my brother's last year at school he and his best mate were the only ones NOT to write off a car in a smash. At least one of these cars was a then new '61 Westminster and another w...

Re: Austin 10 Clifton date and colours

Rogan Welcome to the forum. The chassis No. of your 10hp Clifton G126413 reveals that it was one of the open cars that remained in production alongside the Cambridge until 1937. Your date of 1936 will be correct, July or slightly later maybe. Your car may also have a body No. GPA 126713 - earlier ca...

Re: UK Registration for South African Car?

If it has not been done already you will first need to inform HM Customs & Revenue before it can be registered in the UK. https://www.gov.uk/importing-vehicles-into-the-uk Once this is done can complete a form V55/5 and send it to DVLA. https://www.gov.uk/vehicle-registration/new-registrations Likel...
