Need help with this one. Doesn't show as a DVLA auction plate and although WT was issued to West Yorkshire, from what I understand two letter reverse issues were WU, WW, WX, WY & YG. Could this be a special issue?
M3DGE, OD any ideas???
I agree, a head scratcher. _ concur with your research (from Newall) and the Woodall book also states CT as not reversed. 'Civic Specials' a diplomatic issues tend to be documented. So, I am guessing it is one of those where there was a debate over plate ownership, and they issued a one off. This happened a bit in the 60s and 70s following a period where councils could reissue void numbers - then the owner of the original car drags it out of he barn for resto, applies for a new log book and finds 'his' plate has been reissued. Now, any such issue would be non transferable, but back in the day re-registrations were just treated the same and could be sold on.

I like that. Looks like old money, plate is worth considerably more than the car.

Saw this earlier. I do admire their dedication to get a number plate for any occasion.

I saw a Ford Ranger (horrible colour) with the plate 801 LER. Made me smile!
Pimlico would be boiling mad to get their hands onto that one - provided they don't already own it.

It sums it up that DVLA got there sums wrong by failing to calculate it could have reached high figures at auction all with added VAT.....hehe

Notice, they have 701 LET, which is so similar to 801 LER. See they have A801 LER and B101 LER.

Oh yes silly silly me, let me find the proper thread.
This reminds me of seeing a plate on an Orange Gallardo Spyder about 8 years ago in Bristol city centre that read:

EGO 2 BIG

16 HD on a large sprinter type van with no sign writing.

1BCN on a small Audi which is a great plate. But was previously made to look like 1 BEN with a screw cap. Which really irritates more than a rubbish plate made to look like something it’s not.

Spotted ‘OO 10’ on a small white van in Coventry this afternoon, strangely it comes up as a red BMW Mini.

Typo, presumably. There's a "LO 02 LOO" on a white VW, maybe that's it.

From eBay, £4500.00 + bits in 2012. I'm not a fan of these type of plates, but I am amazed to see one that it is as it should be.
