I don't recall Plymouth Valiant sold with convertible model, but it could be chopped off :think:

Appears to have a "Q" registration number, but now doesn't seem to exist on DVLA

1975-'76 grille but note white pk lamp lenses and rv mirror fastened with a header bar.
This is a 1975.

Found the details on the DVLA site:

Vehicle enquiry
The enquiry is complete.
The vehicle details for Q115 VAM are:
Date of Liability 01 10 1985
Date of First Registration 19 10 1983
Year of Manufacture 1983
Cylinder Capacity (cc) 4cc
CO2 Emissions Not Available
Fuel Type GAS
Export Marker N
Vehicle Status Unlicensed
Vehicle Colour BRONZE
Vehicle Type Approval Not Available

I take it the Year of Manufacture is an error, although I would have thought it would have been given a "Q" registration suffix, rather than a prefix, number

The make is actually listed with DVLA as "76Plymouth"

Also the episode it featured in was broadcast at Christmas 1988. Assuming it was filmed during that year, it hadn't been taxed for almost three years prior to filming.

In the late-90s, I saw one of these on the road during a vacation in San Diego, California. I thought it was just a private customization,but perhaps there may actually have been a company that converted them?
