Grant,

I searched this Forum using the registration number and discovered that it’s 123/3992 and was up for Auction at Morris Leslie Auctions in November 2017.
Quick check on DVLA site for MOT history shows an error on that plate number?

I expect that no. plate has been put on retention and it's been allocated a correct 1970 reg no?

Yes I’d agree with that, personally can’t see the appeal of TGG 1G, but I assume it means something to someone somewhere!

If your initials are TG, you are a rock star, and are driving to your latest Gig. Sounds perfect on the Jensen!

Only famous TG I can think of right now is Terry Gilliam of Monty Python fame, but I’m sure there are others!

Umm... that's TC, surely?

Meanwhile, the Top Gear team are poised to buy.

That 2016 auction price may still be relevant unless repairs were done recently. Suspect a lot more to be done. This may derail punter trying for a deal. 30K anyone? Wot a lot of heartless buggers we are. Kenny38 8)

My friends done the deal now and got the car, he done a few swappsy's etc, he is the chap I got my latest Mk2 from.. he is an avid car collector and has many of all sorts.. Hopefully when I find a minute I'll go and see him and have a look at the car.. it'l be good to see him again.. Lovely Chap he is, a very successful engineer and now has a huge empire of all.
