The gutter shows how much oil cars used to drop in those days. I can remember a drip tray under all my parents cars. Something you don't see so much these days.

DM is a Flintshire registration I think - but the townscape looks like London. The Zephyrs were big cars in those days - now seem quite compact in this modern world of monster cars.

Yes south Africa used the Essex V6 until end of 90,s

They used the 1.6 ohv ( they only used the 2.0 ohc ( never the 1.6 ohc) post 77 when the MK4 cortina debuted the MK3 had the 2.0 Essex V4)right through the Sierra range plus the Essex V6 with efi ,4 SPD auto & 5spd manual.

Plus a 3.4 Essex V6 in Mazda pick-ups into the early 00's I believe.

You could even get the Essex in VW vans with VW warranty on vehicle & ford one on engine! Must've been fun with that hung out the back!

I know of one early 1.6 ohv Sierra hatch & several 3.0 ones here in the UK.

For DMU470A it's the MU that identifies the issuing council but you're right about it looking like that there London as MU was issued by Middlesex (1929-65) (it was then issued by London (1965-74) and finally London North-East (1974-97)).

yeah its a genuine A suffix plate too :) 

you dont see many of those, most A suffix marks tend to be 1980s issued for replacement of ageless plates (DMU-A being issued from November 1963)
