Late registration madness

I believe they did that with Senators too. Also the MOD bought a lot of the last Montego saloons. 

Yes not many Senators were sold to private buyers, most being fleet sales for upper middle management.

I heard Rover sold the last Montegos as a job lot to the MOD, & these were later registered with P reg plates when sold on.

I seen a 07 plate Corsa C at the weekend, I thought 56 was the very last run of these? 

Yes  generally the last Cs are 56 but I'd seen an 07 before, the D model started appearing on the 56 plates

Thought the SA ones went on a bit longer than that.

Ford Essex V6 was a popular swap into them with eng warranty from ford rest by VW!

It's a German LHD - found a force hail ad for it online

Sorry no pictures but just seen an F reg Series 3 XJ6 being trailered on the M62

Probably an XJ12. They kept the S3 going in 12-cylinder form for years as the V12 wouldn't fit in the XJ40 until it was re-engineered in 1992. There are J-reg S3 XJ12s out there, which look odd having such a recent plate on an old design.

A local minibus firm has this LDV Convoy on an 07 reg. The VIN indicates it was built in 2004 and sat around unregistered for three years so I guess the dealer gave them a very good deal to take it away.

The first XJ40s are on a D plate, the last six cylinder series XJ6s are on a C. S3 XJ12s are fairly uncommon, the V12s tend to be Daimlers. IIRC it was because Jaguar couldn't work out a way to put the HE V12 into an XJ40. 

The S3 V12 was in production until December 1992, the last one belongs to the Jaguar and Daimler Heritage Trust. Similarly, the final DS420 made was L reg.

Side note: the S3 XJ in Shaun of the Dead is an XJ12 Sovereign on a C plate. However it was most likely resprayed for the film, as it's debadged, and it's non-metallic BRG with a matching interior, which wasn't offered.  Further, it comes back on the V5 as being silver (which would have been a deep metallic), which would make sense with the contrasting dark green interior. Sovereigns had metallic paint as standard and the interior usually contrasted the paint, rather than matching it.

Back in late 1993 I had some money burning a hole after working abroad and was kicking the tyres at a specialist independent dealers in Cheshire. They had a VW Golf GTI on an L-Reg. Not unusual, but this was a Mk2 pre-big bumper model, so built before 1990, so basically registered at least 3 years after it was built.

Seems some sort of Armageddon special stored away solely for international emergencies by some good ol' survivalist - presumably with a 1000 bog rolls in the back.

How do I know? I also own just such a vehicle - minus the bog rolls....
