Rear license plates were not black on yellow in 1967.

OK. When was that coloured version introduced? (I put 1967 as first possible year only.)

They're mandatory since 1973. But older cars can keep their old black plates.

But older cars can have them changed as well?

Looks like an M reg, which means 1973/1974.

This one takes some explaining. In Oct 69 the poverty-spec Alpine version of the Rapier was launched with minimal trim, single carb engine and so on. The unique boot trim on the Alpine was always as here - 2 separate groups of horizontal bars. Now comes the confusing bit - in Oct 74, the Alpine trim was upgraded to Rapier level - more chrome, sports wheels etc - so became just a slow Rapier with a different boot trim. It was then dropped in August 75. This is therefore the rare 1975my Alpine, not a Rapier. Can I have my cocoa now please!

Edit: the only Arrow-based Alpine we've got so far (plus a US-badged Alpine which is a Rapier at /vehicle.php?id=319748).
