Supplied by Manns Garage Ltd of Chiddingfold, Surrey, 'VPE804M' was first registered on 22nd March 1974 to Dunbar Wharf Ltd of London. Although it remained with the same owner, it was re-registered to another company within the same group on 1st November 1998 following a change in company registered office. Placed into dry storage in 1981, it remained unused until recently being unearthed and treated to a service and MOT. Currently displaying 5,643 miles on the odometer, the accompanying service book stamps appear to verify its low overall mileage, following a speedo change in 1975:

Pre-Delivery Inspection (Graffham Service Station): 21st March 1974 - 42 miles
1st Service 1,000 miles (Graffham Service Station): 2nd October 1974 - Mileage not recorded
