Richard, no one cares! ;D



I dont think so, I think the vin plate has too many letters.  There should be six not seven.
Now I'm wondering if your car is earlier and was re-registered  later in 1959???

Of course I meant Sussex - you see I even confused myself ! Yes but you referred to the letters on your car being a Brighton suffix - being at the beginning they are a prefix aren't they ? My brain hurts

You've lost me there. I thought the letters were put on one side or the the other to stretch out the numbers. Brighton in Suffolk? Sussex surely.

I had a look at the chassis plate. Turns out the V5 has a number missing off the VIN number.

Full number reads 3105583. There's a mark between 8 and 3 that looks a bit like a dash but I think that's just wear and tear.

And its a trailer fgs not a car - is it ?  :D
A Trailer............ Under that cover is one of the best Bond MkDs around.  A beautiful Tourer with tasteful upgrades.  Seen it a few times at Bond events years ago.

All very confusing on several counts . Brighton is in Suffolk not Suffix that's getting all mixed up with Bunkum Bob in Essex  ;D prefix is the word for letters at the beginning of a registration number , suffix is when the letters are at the end of the reg. number  :-\  Nuffinks is what it all has to do with me   :D

That was taken from the V5, I'm pretty certain it matches the chassis plate. I'll take a piccy.
