Default Pre-production S-reg List.

There have been various posts over the years regarding the pre-production S-reg examples, but with these cars now over 20 years old, I think it's time we gathered some up-to-date survivor numbers

If you have an early car or know of one (the six figures in the chassis number will start with '00'), then please post up the details and I'll add it to the list.

I suggest we include chassis number, registration, mechanicals & model, colour & trim and owner details:

001149 - S909XDA - 2.5V6 Auto Conn - Arden Green / D.Sea Green - Speedblock

001196 - S525OVP - 1.8na Man Classic - Arran White / Ash Grey - Club Car

001207 - S420DEH - 2.5V6 Auto Conn SE - Wedgewood / Neptune Blue - Rover66

001477 - S542AOX - 2.5V6 Auto Conn - Dorchester Red / Aubergine - Sonic ZS

001507 - S544AOX - 2.0V6 Auto Conn - Moonstone / Aubergine - Scouse1958

001715 - T789ABD - 2.5V6 Auto Conn - Atlantic Blue / Ash Grey - itcaptainslow

Thanks Iain - as the numerical part of your chassis number begins with '00', then it's certainly a pre-production example. I hadn't realised that some were registered on a 'T', but if you're happy to provide all the details, I'll get it added to the list

Tim Spencer-Leach had a S plate in Wedgewood until last year. Stunning car and original.

There was one by me a while back: S416 DEH, a 2.0V6 in Old English White.

Not sure if it's still alive though.
