Two sample UM rear window stickers for the former BL dealership in the characteristic blue colour.

Peter Beadle has a photo of two sample rear window stickers for the former BL dealership in the characteristic blue colour. He says "they are not the same as the sticker he has seen from David Wellings. I didn't even realise that they are not even the same as each other, or even the one which is on the rear screen of the Mini as shown on a posting on Flicker. I think they must have been locally sourced by each branch of Uiversity Motors.

The one with the BRITISH LEYLAND LOGO would be the one to reproduce, as it could be correct for all branches of UM and also be correct for UM MGCGTs as LEYLAND CARS didn't arrive on the scene until after all the MGCs were sold".

He has a poscript too saying "they are even printed with different backing blues! The one to print should be printed on clear plastic then have adhesive added to the front face, then covered with a protective paper which can then be removed before placing inside the rear screen".

Peter Beadle would welcome information from anyone who knows of other UM stickers, particularly those used before September 1968. More
