Best bet would be to get in touch with the RREC or RROC. They have data cards available

Cheers

A regular, knowledgeable contributor to this forum who lives in Europe maintains better and more up-to-date records than even the RREC and RROC. When he reads this query he is almost certain to provide the answer.

GBM 67 is now with a Pharma company in Hyderabad, its owner an avid vintage collector is sadly no more, and I am told its engine never was up to the mark.

Thanks for the lovely images and finally the doubt of many would be cleared on this car being a Landaulet.

Cheers

In the set of images one side is Paddon coach builders while the other is Hooper can experts of the marque clarify whether Paddon was a sub brand of hooper ? or was this car rebodied sometime from Hooper to a Paddon coachwork
