Dating a registration
#1
Would anyone be able to put a date to a registration number? A friend of mine is trying to trace the origins of a British-registered Bantam (London I believe) FUV 63.

Hi, Is the Bantam by any chance a Right Hand Drive? Do you know when it was first registered in the UK? It will show on the V5C

FUV was first issued in March 1939 and yes, it's a London registration.

Thank you both, that's very helpful.

It no longer exists Edgar - just photos and some non-standard features which are causing some head scratching ... and yes, right hand drive.

What are the non-standard features? can you share the photos in question? would love to help hence why I am asking if it was a right hand drive!

Hi Edgar,

The photos have been included in this month's AABC club news by their editor Cathy Cunningham. Cathy doesn't think it is a British built car (yes there was such a thing!) but it has different trim details to an American built one. They are very protective of their magazine copy-write I'm afraid.

I am corresponding with her so will let you know if she finds out any more.

Peter.
