Looks like this old car of mine is presently off road, just wonder if anyone knows where it is, as I have some old fotos that might be of interest to current owner.

Can't help with the +2 but I used to own YNE 465M !!! It was a Renault 5TL.

I'm guessing your car was supplied by Sports Motors on Plymouth Grove, Manchester, while mine came from the Renault garage just around the corner on Upper Brook St. :D

Yeah, could have Manchester origin, as I was living in North West at the time and bought it from owner in Whitehaven.

This is current status, per DVLA :

You are right, it was sold by Sports Motors new.

A customer called me asking about this car in July 2014, apparently the car was complete, but needed restoring as it had not been used since 2000. The caller never got back to me so I don't know what happened after that.

Interesting - as a pipedream, be nice to get the car back & restore to the road ! If he ever contacts again, think of me !
