Seems PBL 75 (chassis AN5 507) was one of 2 LHD press demonstrators (with green PBL 74) registered 2 months before launch and has body no.4 and engine no.3. Lots of press/publicity photo use at the time; unclear when it switched to RHD as these pictures (from Pathe film - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uHre536AHrk ) and current state, but seems fairly early in 1958??
