SEEN ON TV CV8 Reg DMK 548A

Post by MkSim »

Hi There

Seen on 1970s TV program Hazell ( series one episode 2) -- Green CV8 Registration number DMK 548A
The program is written by Terry Venables actually interesting to see how London has changed

Interesting. I wonder if you actually saw DMK 546K, that was a Mk11 in Deep Carriage Green, chassis No 104/2075. The first owner of 2075 was Mr D H Murray, chairman of The Green Hill Motor Company of Pinner, Pinner is in north-west London (though it was in Middlesex when Mr Murray bought the car, Pinner hasn't moved but Middlesex no longer exists). There isn't a subsequent owner recorded for this car until 1987 and I wonder if Mr Murray kept it a long time, though as he was evidently in the motor trade he is just as likely to have sold it locally. 2075 was last heard of, by me, in Hungary and it was being restored but that was in 2014, the owner then was on the forum with the username Waj but he seems to have disappeared.

Thanks Felix, so definitely DMK 546A.

The company run by Waj (Warvasovszky Janos) doesn't seem to exist anymore, last time I looked there was still a website but it hadn't been updated for years, and they had two C-V8s under restoration, as seen in the video, both of which are lost at the moment.
