Notes

Ordered 7/6/61, first registered in August 1961. Thought to have gone to USA but remained RHD before coming to Australia.
Cannot find any reference to Imported L G Cobb & Son Ltd. It was an onward retail trade sale to Victoria Service Station for a Mr Howsen in Aug 1961 and registered in August 1961. There was a problem with the car as it's marked 'rectification' sometimes this is for engine transplant, but in this case no note.
