The fun part will be to find some of the LHD cars that were sold in the UK intended for export but for various reasons were not. I know of two that were not exported when originally planned but have no idea what the process has been on them since. That was about 50 years ago.

A lot of GI's bough those cars when I was there with the intent of bringing them home when their tour was over. A few of them got wrecked or for some other reason the owner changed his mind prior to leaving.

Photos appear in low resolution site format. If you send me a private message with your email address I can send you same photos but much sharper.
Best wishes

Interestingly South African assembled MK3 Spits all had the L suffix yet where RHD. All 4 of my MK3's have the L suffix, and all are unconverted RHD vehicles.

Looking through t Mk3 Spitfire Database, I see that a number of them are marked with an L suffix, but not all. It makes me wonder if there was a mixup in the personnel who stamped those plates. The real question is do all of your cars have a "4" prefix in front of the FD.
