Yes, number plate is just not quite legible :(
I've tried cross referencing with the register many possibilities, but not got a match (I.e. possible match - wrong colour)
Therefore, unless someone can read it better than I can, or admits it's them :P , it might not be on the register...

Pretty sure that’s no. 66

Scroll down and you’ll find the advert (my old website from when I was GTC reg’). Iirc the seller was keeping hold of the plate, so that’ll be why it doesn’t cross reference.

The position of the GB plate seems to tie up :)

That, the chrome boot lettering and lack of black painted panel on boot lid lip :wink:

Looks like someone painted the wheels that were black on the advert linked above.
