Yes, but I should have checked the rest of the site, shouldn't I? Trouble is, if I do that someone else beats me to the answer ... [:grilled] and I'm old enough to have seen Leafs like this running around!

on this page we see the same vehicle,
but the vehicle details they are from another car? with number plate UW 8470

so i think you are right with M-Typ?

If the other one's a P-type, I think this one is too, whether or not they're the same car. YW 6258 isn't known to the DVLA btw.

It is, but clever as they are they wrote it 'Leafrancis' ... :)

It is a P-Type first registered on June 7th, 1928 with an engine capacity of 1465 cc (which is close enough to the original 1496 cc).

... and failed to put it in their drop-down menu. Still, what do you expect? The DVLA is a Government department

YW 6258 is a blue 1928 P type Lea-Francis which at the time would have been owned by the late Cameron Millar
DVLA has all sorts of errors in the makers' names and Lea-Francis appears as "Lea Francis", "Leafrancis" and "LeaFrancis" as well as correctly.
