Stolen Minor's

Post by POMMReg »

Would everyone owning a Minor PLEASE record their vehicles BODY number.

Also stamp it somewhere only known by its owner, have seen several "rung" Minor's, but this way can identify 100% whether its genuine or not.

Need to be extra vigilant & make it as difficult for thieves as possible!!
Further investigations uncovered it was an inside job!!

Sounds like good advice - thank you, but please remind me where I will find the Body Number?

On the sml thin plate at the top of the n/s b/head.

The 2nd set of numbers, NOT the one prefixed by the "Z" as this id's varient.

I've looked at that plate and there is a Z number on the left (Z + 5 digits) and another, very hard to read, number on the right. It looks like 4 digits - is that correct for the body number?

Ours is a 1959 Traveller.

I've just found it mentioned on facebook. https://www.facebook.com/theo.stickley/ ... 3071897058

RLE 798 E

It looks a sort of Pale Chocolate colour in the photo, but apparently it's Grey.

This is the latest news I have on the stolen Minor.

It was found , taken to the police compound, it was then removed by persons unknown and no one knows where it is at the moment.

Stolen from the Police Impound Yard, you couldn't write that into a TV programme script, they'd say it wasn't realistic..... :roll:
