Jim says

I purchased the 'Sixteen' in 1962 for the princely sum of £35. - quite a lot of money then for a young lad on apprentice wages, But I have enjoyed owning and driving it for the past 47 years. If you are an ardent 'Poirot' fan, you may well have seen RX 4740. in several episodes, the best being 'Hercule Poirot's Christmas'.
