I'm hoping TMF can help me with something. I had a 1971 850 being restored and I'm looking for information on the 'correct' number plate to use. Can somebody who was around in the UK during '71 please tell me which is correct?
Most of the brochures from '70, '71, '72 show cars with a white riveted raised digits on a black background.
But the 1971 850 catalogue shows Black/white riveted raised digits on a white/yellow background. I've been told that during this period customers where able to option the 'safety plate' as paid extra.
