According to the DVLA, it's blue, registered in Feb 1969, but not been taxed since 1991 AND has had a 3500cc engine fitted at some stage!!

With a bit of internet-ing it appears UDU 755G had an interesting life. Started out as a Mk1 PI rally car, was then re-bodied as a Stag with all the PI running gear transferred over, then had a 3.5l Rover V8 fitted and a Jaguar diff (but I guess you already knew that....see http://retrorides.proboards.com/thread/156602?page=4). Think you'd have trouble these days convincing the DVSA it's the same car and not to put it on a "Q".....
Appears to have gone missing in the 90s.

Have you found UDU Andy or is this just general interest?

Is the car still a reality or is the initial post just a query about the car from the article?
I'm actually surprised that the car retained the PI reg whilst re bodied in a different model of car! But I suppose it was 25 to 30 years ago.....

Did hope to write an article for the club magazine, but the lead has gone very quiet.... hoped the lead may have been an reader of this forum!
